Generic Middle Eastern Fare

Lots of stuff for vegans - the standard middle eastern foods like falafel, hummus, etc. Also, the back page of the menu has a whole bunch of stuff that's vegan. Things to watch out for: the Jerusalem salad is not vegan, and the chefs can be really uncooperative about leaving it out sometimes. If you're modifying something, you'll have to be really specific or they won't listen to you.

I really like Cedars since they moved from their old location a couple of years ago. The interior is trendy and hip, but more importantly they complement it with really good food. I really admire them because they were able to pull off an order for a small departmental reception with only a couple of hours of notice. I also try to seek out the hummus and other dishes that they sell on campus at various outlets.

The hummus here is the best hummus that I have ever tasted. Seriously, I am writing this review from an internet cafe in Greece and the hummus here just isn΄t as good as Cedars΄. Other good options at Cedars include the Beryani, Falafel and Foul, although beware the Falafel sandwich because they often try to put Jerusalem Salad on it, which isn΄t vegan.
