Dinner at Aladdin's Eatery, a Lebanese-American restaurant which opened recently at The Strip in North Canton.
It was my first time eating at Aladdin's and the experience had far more minuses than pluses. Good enough to try again, partly because I want to try their dessert menu, but future experiences would have to be much different to have any chance of making me a regular.
I chose the Mediterranean Beef Kafta plate for dinner. The beef kafta, links of char-grilled ground beef mixed with onions, parsley, herbs, and spices, for those of you who may not know, was tasty and that's something I'd be happy to eat again.
The pita bread that came with the meal was nothing special. On the other hand, the brown rice was bland, very disappointing, once you got past the little bit which was dusted with cinnamon. Worst of all, though, was both the garlic sauce and the yogurt paste that came with the meal, I couldn't eat either of those.
Perhaps we should have been thankful to get pita bread at all. The server didn't bring it while we waited for the other food, it didn't come out with the the main dish and after I had to ask for it he disappeared for several minutes and then made time to wipe off a table and disappear again before we ever saw him bring bread to the table.
Feeling very generous, I'd rate Aladdin's Eatery worthy of a C, leaning toward a D. Hopefully they had a bad night.
Lunch at Cameo Grill in Massillon, ordered an "Ultimate Grilled Cheese" Sandwich from the Specials board.
Cameo Grill's "Ultimate Grilled Cheese", on grilled Texas bread, comes with American, Swiss and Mozzarella cheese plus bacon! I'll definitely order this one again. Added a side order of Deep Fried Green Beans to go with the sandwich.
