Chef Samir Shaltout

Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue does it?

But hey, neither does baba ganouj and that doesn’t stop it from being delicious. Speaking of delicious baba ganouj, this place has it, among other nice mezze options.

Clockwise from top right, baba ganouj, hummus, moussaka and marinated eggplant. We also split an okra and beef tagine, which I thought was only ok. It tasted homemade, but more in a “I probably could have made this at home” way. The rice and salad were really good though and it was a ton of food.

The inside was surprisingly well decorated to be in a strip mall and the service was great.

While not the best middle eastern restaurant in Greensboro, Chef Samir Shaltout is definitely a good option in the ethnic food wasteland of Wendover.

  3. Oh, man, I respectfully disagree 🙂 I had the chicken shawarma here and it topped anything I’ve had in Greensboro, also a beef appetizer (forget the name tho) which was so tender and perfectly seasoned. And yes, the service is great, right? We were lucky to have Chef Samir come out and greet us when we dined there a few months back. A real charming guy with a distinguished air about him. Love your blog, and glad to see the updates!
