I love Mediterranean food. It is super close to my office, it is among the many restaurants lining a busy Kearny Street during the work week. Small, hole in the wall restaurant with limited seating inside and a few tables outside.
Baladie features most of the classics mezze, falafel, shawarma but also other treats, such as fattoush ~a bread and vegetable salad, mejaddara ~lentils and rice and pies made of olive oil dough stuffed with spinach, feta, and spiced meats simply delicious.
It is affordable and fast if you want decent Greek food. My favorites are the:
~Lentil Soup, you can get it with rice it is flavorful and hearty
~Spanakopita Vegetarian Pie
~Shawarma Lavash - the lamb and beef with hummus, tahini, lettuce, tomato & cucumbers is something I always get. Very filling, I split it in half and eat the other half for dinner
~Iron Bowl - rice with lentil, spinach topped with chicken, tasty combination of flavors and spice
~Mojadara Platter- Hot lentil and rice with caramelized onions, yogurt cucumber salad and 1 pita and I get it with chicken for extra charge. (They put a little too much chicken which overpowers the dish, but in general still very good.)
It's a place where you can get party platters and salads for parties and catering. For the price not bad at all and a place I get most of my lunches to get me through the work week. Consistently delicious and reasonable! Four stars!
