I love this restaurant. It has the best Middle Eastern food in my opinion, and I have been to the city of Jerusalem. They have the best falafel in Puerto Rico — fresh-tasting and super crisp. I also love to have the vegetable kebabs with Arab rice pilaf and salad. And as with any typical Middle Eastern restaurant, they have belly dancing show on Friday nights.

This is a restaurant in the most residential part of Isla Verde. Currently there's a boom of Peruvian cuisine in Puerto Rico and according to a friend of mine from Lima, this one is the most authentic. Their ceviche mixto is delicious and the fried calamari are extremely light and special. And what I can certainly vouch for is they have the best tostones ever! Super crisp!
