CloverEats: El Harissa Market Cafe in Ann Arbor
Fred suggested we try El Harissa Market for dinner, it’s a small deli/cafe on the northwest side of Ann Arbor, near Juicy Kitchen. True to its name, it feels like a market. There are shelves with everything from local tomatoes to jasmine tea in tin cans.
I loved the use of unusual ingredients in their deli offerings. I can’t remember the last time I was so excited to try different things. The blue potatoes in their version of a caprese salad are absolutely beautiful! Everything we got was delicious. My salad came with an amazing dressing that had just a hint of garlic that was perfect.
They also had a wide range of gelato made by a local Italian family. The employees happily offered samples of their favorites, of which we tried a risotto that tasted like cinnamon rice pudding! I also really liked lavender honey, spiced hazelnut fig, and Turkish roast.
