mediterranean food has a soft spot in our hearts, since it can bring up the nostalgy of discovering “home away from home”, through food. being portuguese, we lean towards the western side of the mediterranean style (say olive oil, tomatos, fish) whereas haya’s food is more of the eastern-mediterranean variety (turkish style, falafels, hummus, kebabs). and that’s ok – i have yet to meet a southern european dish that i didn’t like. :)
we had latkes (which i had been meaning to try since seeing matt’s yummylicious pictures), two kinds of kebab and their mini-apple pie. all very yummy. oh, and the peach juice they have there reminds me of our portuguese compal, which is more than enough to keep this girl happy.
anyway, some the pictures:
the only thing i don’t like at haya’s is the service. i’m not very picky about these things, but the waiters seem to always forget something and then pretend we’re not there… a bit annoying.
the reason we keep crossing half the city to come here? just the food. it’s good, and you should definitely give it a go, if you’re into mediterranean cuisine.
