Part 2 of Ali’s Middle Eastern Food

Enjoy part 2 of Ali’s eatery review.
Here I interview a few of Ali’s regular customers and fans. Then I stuff my face with the greatest kofta in the city.

This taste not only brought me back to my years at college, but also reminded me of the great food I ate growing up in Egypt as a child. That’s the power of good food!


Food Summit: Ali’s Middle Eastern Food

Another Temple university eatery, Ali’s has been serving delicious middle eastern food for over a quarter of a century!
If you get the chance, stop by, grab a meal and have a chat with the great staff. Trust me, they got me through many years at Temple!

P.S. Ali is hilarious

Cups and Chairs

At this precise moment, I am drinking Rooibos (Organic) tea at Cups and Chairs located on the intersection of 5th and Monroe.  According to the menu, the following is the description of the tea: “An earthy herb from South Africa, rooibos is also referred to as “Red Tea”.  Very high in antioxidants and vitamins, it is a most versatile herb that is often blended with other flavorings and herbs.”


This tea has a distinctive red color you will not find on a daily basis.  After sipping and appreciating this tea, I must say my body and mind feels different.  I can feel the antioxidants running through my blood.  My mind is in a state relaxation.
