Stopped by Tov- Li Shawarma and Falafel to pick up lunch when we were hanging out in Forest Hills (Queens , New York) and came upon this restaurant. The food was pretty amazing! My husband mentioned after eating it, that the person who prepared the food, must’ve put a lot of care and love into making all this food, as it was comparable to eating food that was prepared in someone’s home. Everything was cooked perfectly, not too greasy or salty with great flavors.
There were so many things to chose from off the menu. The guys that ran the place were nice and patient with all my questions.
The Babaganoush was creamy and on point, not spicy or bitter at all. Their Morracan roasted eggplant was scrumptious with their sweet tomato based sauce. Their hummus was clean tasting and fresh. Their beet salad was cooked to perfection and not mushy with just the right amount of lemon.
Their Chicken Swarma was tender, tasty and not too salty or fatty. Their falafels were perfect, in terms of both flavor and texture.
Not quite sure if the pita bread was homemade, but we liked that it had a pocket, where we were able to stuff chicken and hummus where almost nothing fell out and the kids were able to hold it in their hands and ate it easily.
Their green sauce was super garlicky, smooth and not overpowering.
I forgot to ask for their white sauce, but I did try their hot sauce and it was slightly sweet and mildly spicy- so good!
It was our first meal at this restaurant, but we are already looking forward to having many more meals from here. I believe they do catering, so we are thinking of ordering food from here when the time comes.
If you’re in the Forest Hills, Queens neighbored, give them a try.
Tasty, homemade Middle Eastern Food with great prices and portions!
