Salma Farah’s Mediterranean — Taste of El Paso Preview
Taste of El Paso is November 12th and tickets are selling fast. To get you ready to eat some of the best food in El Paso, we’ll be previewing each of the restaurants and the dish they’ll be serving at the 2014 Taste of El Paso.
Often considered some of the best Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food in El Paso, Salma Farah will be joining us for Taste of El Paso this year. They'll be serving to items unique to the middle eastern region, fatayer and hummus. Fatayer, an Arab meat pie pastry similar to empanadas, will be offered in two choices, beef or vegetarian (spinach and cheese), both equally delicious.
The hummus is made daily in-house from a mixture of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. If you've never had hummus, Salma Farah's is the best place to start, because why not start with the best, right?
Other items on the menu, but not available at Taste of El Paso, are gyros, Kibbe, a traditional Lebanese dish made with beef and cracked wheat, cabbage rolls, and grape leaves, among many other dishes.
Salma Farah's is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
