This downtown market and deli is one of the few Middle Eastern places in the state capital of Salem. Upstairs is a modest Arabic restaurant. If you like Middle Eastern food, try this market, deli, and restaurant.

There is a difference between Lamb and Mutton. We suspect that fine line was crossed on our last visit. Also, I bought a gift certificate through a local radio station. The fine-print restrictions were so onerous, that on my second failed attempt to use it....More
