|Chicken Shawarma Plate|
Aladdin's Market & Kitchen is the only local Mediterranean market in Reno and is run by a sweet owner, Radi.
I got the sampler and chicken kabob plate (my favorite) and boy was I jumping up and down with joy when I tasted how amazing the food was.
The chicken kabob plate was perfectly balanced with spices, had super juicy chicken, and came with a garlic tahini and tzatziki sauce that was finger licking good. You'll probably want to order extra if you want to play it safe.
The beef kabob (kofta) could use a bit more flavor, but nonetheless was still great for its freshness.
Though some of the desserts were a tad too sweet for me, I still encourage you to try them out if you have a sweet tooth. Lots of people like them.
Their tabouli salad, made of finely chopped ingredients, including parsley, tomato, cucumber, bulgur wheat, and a citrus dressing, was the perfect side.
I can't wait to try their kibbeh (meat wrapped in wheat dough and fried), fries, and soup next visit.
The owner moved to Reno 40 years ago and while he admired the city, he felt like something was missing - meditarranean/middle eastern food.
I'm so glad he followed his heart and worked his butt off in starting this business. Me and many other locals are thankful for this passport to amazing food.
