First Look: Sultan Palace Bakery and Cafe Serves Shawarma and More on South Grand
Shawarma comes in six-inch ($4.99) and whopping twelve-inch ($8.99) sizes, chock-full of chicken or beef and a variety of warm veggies and pickles. A falafel sandwich sets diners back a mere $3.49. A Palestinian-style brunch option ($9.99) comes with Arabic teas and an appetizer sampler spread big enough for two.
The list doesn't stop there, however. Americanized options such as chicken wings with fries ($6.99 to $9.99), a catfish fillet ($8.99) and a Philly cheese steak ($5.99) also make up a portion of the menu, albeit prepared differently than one might imagine. Nakhlah says they get cooked in olive oil and are served on his house-made bread.
The menu packs a lot of variety for one chef to handle, but if that means Nakhlah will have to hire a cook or two to share his food with the neighborhood, Gut Check's A-OK with that.
Sultan Bakery and Cafe's hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
