Thank you for reading mmm-yoso!!! Our food blog shares meals enjoyed so that you too may somehow enjoy. Usually Kirk is writing, but he is otherwise occupied with researching and all that is part of researching. Ed(from Yuma) is otherwise occupied with his job as well as research. Cathy is preoccupied with so many things, but has also managed to take some photos of her meals and today is the one sharing.
Kirk, Ed(from Yuma) and I have enjoyed meals at Alforon, but Kirk is the one who has written all three of the posts mentioning this restaurant. I figure it's time for one of my recent visits to be shared.
Located on El Cajon Boulevard about two blocks West of College Avenue on the South side of the street, the inset row of building with the strange parking in front at an angle and then parallel to the sidewalk as well as on the street in front, Alforon has not changed in the past three or so years.
On this visit, The Mister and I ordered a small tabbouleh salad ($5.95). Freshly chopped parsley, tomato and onion mixed with olive oil and lemon and all mixed with bulghur, this is always refreshing and enough to share.
The freshly baked flatbread, topped with Zaatar (a spice mix of sumac, sesame and wild thyme) and cheese ($4.95) is something we are always happy eating. The delicate fresh slightly crisp bread topped with this mix is salty-savory and comforting.
Chicken tawook ($6.95) is something I have cravings for. You can see the abundance of shredded chicken topped with garlic paste and pickle bits and the flavors blend so well.
Always fresh and always good. Comforting quality.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
