VegKC Restaurant Meetup - Aladdin Café

If you RSVP show up.

We'll be in the 39th street area having Middle Eastern at the Aladdin Café (Jerusalem Cafe is also good, although they won't split checks). If you've never had Middle Eastern food, this is a great vegan friendly choice. Think Hummus & Pita Bread, Grape Leaf Rolls (Dolmas), Baba Ganouj, Roasted Red Pepper / Genie Dip, Falafal Sandwiches, and some of the best Yellow Lentil Soup you've ever had... if you're not one of our vegan members they also have some tasty phyllo dough pastries.

Pita bread is normally vegan, as is theirs.  If you go for the salad make sure to remember that they put feta cheese on it, you can also order the sampler platters with out feta cheese or krass pastries. 

They've remodeled, removed the area upstairs, and expanded downstairs. They have seating for about 70 people with the patio and side areas, although only about 20 in the back room... so we may be a little spread out depending on the size of the group that shows up. 

 We've decided to order off the menu this time around, they have some great sandwiches and such at reasonable prices. I highly recommend the sampler platter. We could have arranged a vegan buffet, but at 12-13 dollars depending on the group size, we thought it best to keep it affordable and flexible for as many as possible. 

This is one of the best local Mediterranean restaurants around.

Please - respect the RSVPs, if you choose to come RSVP and SHOW UP! We understand that life happens and if you might not make it - please update your RSVP to no! This is absolutely necessary to keep events free and work with venues.

    Hey guys! I hope everyone had a lovely time! I really wanted to go to this one, but I hurt my ankle real bad this morning at practice and can still hardly walk. X.x I had to get my little brother to come get me from where I was because I was unable to drive home. I was so worried about my ankle I that this meetup completely slipped my mind until now, so I'm really sorry I didn't change my RSVP. I definitely plan on being at the next one and sad I missed this one, Alladin's is awesome! (Really jonesing for some comfort food right about now, haha)

    Sorry for the delay in confirmation on this one, but I've called the restaurant a couple of times and never received a call back. I just talked with someone there again and I'm waiting on a call back from their manager. If for some reason they are unable to accommodate us we will probably fall back to Eden Alley.
