Almarah Mediterranean Cuisine
12129 Ranch Rd 620 N #450, 512/520-8169
With an attached hookah bar and late night hours, Almarah Mediterranean Cuisine is perfect to satisfy any midnight cravings. In addition, every meal comes with a fresh baked loaf of pita bread that is cooked when you arrive to ensure that it is still warm when it hits your table.
This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.

Despite most Americans' unfamiliarity with the Balkans, the food won't seem the least bit foreign. It is simply prepared, with clean, fresh flavors that are as comforting as Grandma's Sunday pot roast. The Saturday-only rotisserie whole lamb is cooked over mesquite coals on a spit, seasoned only with salt.
