Middle Eastern food

Another fabulous Middle Eastern restaurant, although this one is closer to Shoreland and Broadview. The Mojadara vegetables come highly recommended. Vegans cannot eat the pita.

The Nile has the best falafel in Hyde Park (in my humble opinion). Another great vegan dish at The Nile is the Mojadara Vegetables, which consists of rice, lentils and caramelized onions cooked in a wonderful seasoning. You can find food from The Nile at all of the student-run coffee shops at the University of Chicago if you don't feel like walking down 55th street.

The restaurant itself is pretty small but the food is inexpensive and they take credit cards (unlike the student-run coffee shops at the UofC). I used to get carryout from The Nile all the time when I lived in Hyde Park.
