My mom wanted to eat at Babylon Mediterranean Restaurant on Saturday. Now since she told me this ahead of time aka on Friday, I was able to look at the menu beforehand. Nothing appeared to be gluten free so I called the restaurant. A lovely woman answered the phone and told me that the entire menu, besides the bread and bulgar wheat, was gluten free!
So Saturday finally rolled around. As soon as I sat down, I told the waiter I was gluten free. He pointed out the few dishes I would not be able to order (basically all of the hot appetizers but nbd) and was very knowledgable.
We ended up ordering 2 appetizers, the roasted eggplant with tomatoes and Baba Ghannoush. Well technically 3 because Brandon ordered the Spinach Rolls, but I couldn’t eat them. The restaurant also gave us an order of the Israeli salad on the house.
I was basically on cloud nine. The appetizers were delicious.
For my main dish, I ordered the lamb chops and gyro combo platter. I got a double order of rice since I couldn’t eat the bulgar wheat. It also came with some type of yogurt dipping sauce, delicious, a roasted pepper and tomato, red cabbage and romaine lettuce.
I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. My dish was delicious. I also wanted to show you what my mom (my dad ordered the same thing) and Brandon’s dishes. They aren’t gluten free because of the bulgar wheat and I wanted to include them because they would be gluten free if there wasn’t bulgar wheat!
