Habibi Restaurant

We stopped in for an early dinner Habibi Restaurant, 1012 SW Morrison Street, Portland, Oregon, on June 12, 2011 between touring the Portland Art Museum and going to the Augustana concert. Due to the hour we dined, it wasn't surprising there were few customers in the restaurant. I ordered the Veggie Kibbeh while my husband ordered the Lamb Shank. The kibbeh was tasty but not outstanding. My husband seemed to enjoy his lamb shank. We split an order of knafe for dessert. Finding this Middle Eastern dessert is always a treat because many Middle Eastern restaurants don't make it. The serving was definitely big enough to split. The arabic coffee we ordered was the perfect accompaniment to this sweet, cheesy, desssert.  The staff was friendly without being intrusive. The atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable.

Note: For those unfamiliar with Arabic, Habibi is a term of endearment directed toward a male.
