Oh thank goodness there’s Mediterranean food in Indiana too! This might just work out as long as Trader Joe’s moves into the city. (Actually it was planned but then legend goes it was declined at the last moment. Why oh why?!) Genki Husband and I are just thrilled to have found an Aladin’s that serves vegan entrees – hooray! You might remember us going to this place quite often when we lived in Cleveland, Ohio a few years back. There are very many fond memories going to this restaurant with our Jordanian friends in Cleveland. I almost feel guilty eating there without them. Almost… So is it the same as the original in Ohio?
Yes! Yes it is the same restaurant. As we drove past the restaurant, I was a bit worried it might be different so I was apprehensive to test it out. Thankfully we went ahead and checked it out two weeks ago and now we have gone there at least once a week. There are a few differences though. Firstly, the restaurant is a franchise (or so it seems) and is not run or overseen by the same people in Ohio. So, flavors are a bit more bland compared to the headquarters but the essential flavors are still there. Other than that just about everything seems to be the pretty much the same. Hooray, right!?!
So if you are in the Mishawaka/South Bend area in Indiana – fear not you can get your Arabic food for take out or eat in. We also found out there is a delivery service in the area that is called Dine Out. Check out this website for more information and the rates that apply to the service. But why not just stop in and check out the restaurant and stay for a nice vegan dessert. Mmmm You will probably see us there too. If you see us, say Hello! I love meeting all of you Genki Friends!
