Update: Gazala's Place

Spinach Bourekas
It's hard to believe, but it's been a little over a year since I first visited Gazala's Place with my parents. We absolutely loved it (they've even gone back on their own!). So when we found ourselves out again in Midtown West with empty stomachs, we stopped by a liquor store to grab a couple of bottles of wine (it's BYOB), then made a beeline back to this great Israeli Druze joint.

Ordering was easy since getting a Bourekas is an absolute must (flaky pastry covering a rich cheese filling mixed with whatever the daily special is, today was spinach). I didn't see the Gazala's Platter we got last time on the menu, but found a Vegetarian Appetizer Sampler which was very similar. I chose the Potato Cigar, Tahini, Grape Leaves, and Hummus. We also ordered a large Tabouli, but this came out quite a bit later and by that time we were caught up in conversation so I didn't want to interrupt for pictures.

For dessert we got the Baklava again. A perfect two-bite way to end the meal on a sweet note without leaving overly stuffed!
