There are still a few spots left for this month's meetup. :)
For March's meetup, we are heading over to one of my favorite places: Aladdin's Eatery in Dublin. They have many vegan options available. Check out their menu at:
They have rolled pitas, salads, hummos, dawali, baba ganoush, tabouli, salad pockets, and falaffel, among many other options.
Here's some information from their website:
Aladdin's Eatery Systems, Inc. strives to lead the way in serving healthy, nutritious Lebanese/American food in a relaxed, casual and smoke-free atmosphere with superior service. Founded in 1994 by Fady and Sally Chamoun, their dream has become a highly successful business promoting health and friendliness. Following high standards, philosophies and basic fundamentals, Aladdin's Eatery restaurants enjoy satisfied customers who always come back for more.
Aladdin's Eateries feature distinctive rolled pita sandwiches, pita pockets, and "Pitza's" made with homemade pita bread. The pita bread contains no fat, cholesterol, or oil. No sulfites or preservatives are used. Only fresh vegetables and meats appear on the menus. Over seventy menu items are Vegetarian or Vegan. Imported olive oil is used for both homemade salad dressings and saute's. Aladdin's Eatery offers twelve varieties of natural herb teas without artificial flavoring or preservatives. Juices are squeezed to order to ensure maximum freshness. In addition to the best tasting Lebanese/American food, Aladdin's Eateries also offer the unique "Smoothies," a tantalizing blend of fresh fruits and juices.
Good tasting, high quality and exciting meals are only the beginning. The menu also features a wide variety of meals suitable for Gluten Free, Diabetic and Heart healthy diets. Aladdin's Eateries emphasizes simplicity in both customer service and preparation. Return customers are the lifeblood of the business. Quality, consistency and friendly service keeps them.
There are many reasons why people choose to stop eating meat and animal products, but wanting bland or tasteless food is not one of them. In fact, limiting your diet to vegetables, fruits and nuts can have a very positive effect on your health if you eat the right combination. Healthy eating begins with getting a sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables in your diet. The national food-guide pyramid suggests 3-5 servings of vegetables and fruits per day.
Aladdin's Eatery is proud to be a forerunner in the choice of meatless varieties presented on any menu. Our families promoted good eating habits through traditional recipes, and now we bring them to you.
Our Mujadara Plate is a perfect combination of vegetables, rice, lentil beans and just the right amount of flavor. Explore our menu further and you can see just how exciting eating vegetarian style can be, even if you're not a vegetarian! Our homemade Lentil Soup warms the heart and is sure to warm your taste buds, too. Our crispy vegetarian patties called Falaffel are filled with fava beans, chickpeas, and the right amount of herbs and spices to make it a tasty adventure into the world of "veggie-burgers."
The Natural Energy is an all-fresh potassium-packed juice drink made with carrot, celery, spinach, and parsley. And for dessert, try the Fruit and Nut Salad on for size. With or without plain non-fat yogurt, it is a refreshing end to a hearty vitamin-enriched meal!
I hope you can join us for what will be a wonderful and tasty Middle Eastern lunch!
