Caspian Grill mixes spices and fresh fruit to bring the authentic Persian taste to your table. Extensive menu swings from meat-heavy to vegan options.
Located close to the Domain, Halal Bros brings affordable, halal dishes – think shawarma, kebabs, and kofta over rice or in a wrap – to North Austin.
Start with crumbled feta, crisp radish slices, and parsley garnishing a basket of hot flat bread. Kebab plates are another option, with tender meats and lightly seared vegetables.
This North Austin brick and mortar version of the popular food truck offers staple Mediterranean Lebanese dishes like lamb gyro shawarma and kafta with hummus.
International grocery store stocking specialties from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia also boasts a lunch counter that makes a pretty mean shawarma.
Put yourself in the hands of an expert at the counter, and be guided through this menu. Composed of stews, salads, and kebabs, it is small enough that it takes only a few trips to sample its entirety. All meals come with hot tea and whatever dessert the kitchen whips up that day. These tend to be sticky and pudding-ish, but usually round out the meal in a pleasant fashion.
