Ya-Hala in Bridgeton
Ya-Hala Restaurant is now open at 12434 St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton. Ya-Hala serves Middle Eastern cuisine: appetizers such as hummus, tabouleh and kibbeh; beef and chicken shawarma; and beef and lamb kabobs.

(For whatever it's worth, one of Gut Check's most trusted operative returned from a visit there raving about the hummus and lamb kabobs.)

There is also a "Daily Platter" Monday through Friday. These feature dishes not seen very often around here, like mansaf (Friday's platter), a Jordanian dish of lamb and fermented yogurt.

Ya-Hala is open 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Friday and Saturday and noon-11 p.m. Sunday. Call 314-738-0559 for more info.

I lunched at Ya Hala with my daughter at her request; attentive staff, attractive, pleasant decor. The menu had good choices. We chose the Musakh  and the Shawerma Platter Chicken. Both dishes were very tasty, the hummus was wonderful, and the mint tea, soothing. The lunch for two came to $25 including tip; reasonable. I will definitely try Ya Hala again. 


Hands down the best Arabic food outside the Middle East. Nothing compares to YA HALA the creamy garlic sauce, the hummous and the huge portions of tabouli, I look forward to it everytime we eat here. The YA HALA meat platter is perfect for sharing and to get a nice taste of the selections they have to offer. I've never had anything here that wasn't darn near amazing!Shatha 10/24/2011
