Dinner At Atilla's

It may not look like much, but Atilla's Restaurant (2705 Columbia Pike, Arlington, VA 22204) is one of our favorite Middle Eastern options.

They pass the most important tests: the pita is fresh and the hummus is delicious. Because the hummus is Turkish style it has a slightly different texture than the Israeli hummus we are used to. But either way, it's good.

Next time you have a craving for authentic Middle Eastern food, give Atilla's a try.

Warning: the cafe is almost always too hot in the summer, so plan to either pick up the food and eat at home, or sit at an outside table. Ideal on a perfect night like tonight.
