Maroosh in Coral Gables
Belly dancing shows every weekend may intrigue some, but for foodies the unusually large selection of Middle Eastern dishes is attraction enough. There isn’t just kibbeh (minced meat, bulgur, and spices); there are three kinds—fried, baked, and the seldom-found raw version. Vegetarians do especially well here, with numerous exotic meat-free options that venture beyond hummus: mahamra (roasted red peppers with nuts and seasonings), bamia (sautéed okra with tomato sauce, cilantro, and garlic), foul medamas (fava beans with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and tomato sauce), labneh (luscious homemade yogurt cheese), much more.
