Munooshi Cafe - try something different for lunch!

Munooshi cafe is located in the East End of the City on East Terrace.  This little Middle Eastern cafe's signature dish is their namesake, the Munooshi (aka Manosha).  Munooshi are Arabic pizzas - think Arabic version of the Italian calzone filled with Arabic ingredients.

I arrive with three friends and we go straight for the Munooshi.  The staff are friendly and welcoming and mention to us that the lamb and falafel options are the best sellers, so we decide to order both.

Lamb munooshi (tahini, tomato and fresh mint) - $8.50
The minced lamb munooshi arrives first.  The munooshi is a decent lunch size (10 inch) - not too small, not too large....just right!  The dough is well baked on the outside, is a good thickness and soft to the bite.  The minced lamb is well seasoned and mixed with fresh vegetables.  Overall, this dish was nice, but a little sweet for my liking (especially when my palette was expecting something else).

Falafel munooshi (lettuce, tomato, cucumber and tahini) - $8.50
The falafel munooshi comes out second.  Again, the dough is well cooked and size of the dish is consistent with the lamb that was ordered.  Overall, I preferred this over the lamb.  The falafel was soft and crumbled in my mouth and paired with the tahini and fresh vegetables made for a nice dish.

If you are looking to try something a little different, give Munooshi a go.

Ambiance:  3.5/5 - Small indoor area, but nice outdoor area to sit on a nice summer's day. 
Service: 3.5/5 - Food arrived quick, friendly cheerful service.
Food:  7/10
