Fattoush at Horus Cafe



I love going to Horus Cafe in the Lower East Side for Middle Eastern food. H and I went on a weeknight and it was such a different, mellow scene from the crazy, jam-packed atmosphere and pricey attitude on Friday and Saturday nights.

We sat at a table outside, enjoyed the warm temperature at night and lightly noshed while drinking white wine and smoking an apple hookah. The best dish at Horus is their Fatoush Salad. Fatoush is a Lebanese bread salad made with fresh vegetables like cucumber, tomatoes, radishes and onions tossed in a lemony vinaigrette with toasted pita and some sprinkles of sumac. A perfect way to beat the summer heat while watching that waistline!

I visited NYC for the first time this last weekend, and stumbled into Horus quite by accident as my girlfriend and I were leaving a nearby Halloween party, on Saturday, the night before I flew back to California. We both enjoyed the experience, having some hummus-based dish, an apple hookah, and a few Armenian beers.
