A new addition to State St, La Marsa is two skips and a hop away from Phi Rho, and is a lot less shady to get to at night when we’re craving chicken shawarma wraps!
There is an amazing garlic sauce with puffy bread served in lieu of traditional bread+butter, and IT. IS. AMAZING. I’m pretty sure this is the same garlic sauce that goes into the sandwiches themselves, lending them their signature savoriness.
La Marsa also offers a variety of juices and smoothies, made from fresh fruit!
Here is my delicious sandwich. It’s smaller than the ones at Jerusalem Garden, but also cheaper (less than $5). La Marsa is a great stop for lunch or a late-night snack, and you can order out for a quick meal to go! Check it out on YELP or its Official website!
Upon Johannes’ recommendation, Fred and I stopped by a slightly out-of-the-way Jerusalem Garden for some Mediterranean. I think a lot of the lunch talks get catering from JG, so it was kind of surreal to see the restaurant where all our delicious meals are made.
Apparently, you can either order out or eat in. There was a small window with all sorts of interesting desserts, and we were told that the best had already sold out. Despite feeling slightly disappointed, I think it’s always a good sign when a restaurant’s best pieces get gobbled up before the day is through.
There is something amazing about garlic. It’s just a bit spicy, but so so flavorful. I think the garlic at Jerusalem Garden is just right – creamy in the sandwich, strong, but not overpowering. Amazing and delicious!!
Of course, we topped off the meal with Baklava. What a great meal!
