My mother and I LOVE Middle-Eastern cuisine! Our favorites are Holy Land and Jerusalem's. However, once we finally got around to visiting Filfillah, our allegiances began to change. This food is PHENOMENAL!!! Fresh, vibrant, and delicious! AND it's something my mother can order via Door Dash!
We both ordered our favorite appetizers for this type of cuisine. I got the Falafel. Filfillah's version is among the best I've ever had. The standard sized order comes with 6 HUGE pieces, perfectly flavored with parsley, spices, onions, and garlic. The tahini sauce was also wonderful, though they didn't initially give me enough (easily fixed as they brought out more for no additional charge). My mother ordered the Dolma. She loves stuffed grape leaves, and Filfillah's were excellent - lots of lemon and onions, and a very tasty cucumber yogurt sauce for dipping.
For our entrees, we both got the Filfillah Platter. It comes with 2 Shish Kabobs - one lamb and one chicken, an Adana Kabob (a mix of ground beef and lamb with onions and spices), a TON of Shawarma (both lamb & beef and chicken varieties), all served on a bed of saffron rice. It also came with a BIG piece of Turkish Bread (like a giant sourdough bun) as well as tahini and cucumber sauces for dipping. NOTE: This Platter is HUGE and can easily be split between 2 people.
The platters stuffed us so full that we didn't have room to partake in dessert. Filfillah has the usual suspects, Baklava, Rice Pudding, and Basbosa, plus a Turkish dessert called Kunafa - which is a pastry stuffed with sweet goat cheese and ground pistachio nuts. It looked divine!!!
Overall, Filfillah is a welcome addition to the Middle-Eastern dining scene in the Twin Cities. If you're a fan of Holy Land or Jerusalem's, Filfillah is definitely worth a look.
