So a LONG time ago - I got an email from the Kinneret Cafe in Deer Park asking me to stop out for a review. It was seriously like over a year ago...it's sort of small and in an odd location - so I just didn't think about going too much. Then recently I was browsing Restaurant.com and saw them so decided it was about time I get my butt over there.
Dr. Werwa!). There are a few spots right out front of the cafe and luckily we snagged one of those. Inside it's probably got 15 tables or so. You can definitely tell it's family run. Also - just from the flyers on the walls and such - a lot of Jewish people eat there as well - not sure if it's all Kosher but just throwing that out there if you're looking for someplace new!
Myra's. The hummus was my favorite - it was thicker and chunkier than I normally like but a good flavor. I don't like eggplant and that was reaffirmed when I tried the babaganush. The mafbucha (maybe?) was basically cold stewed peppers - didn't like that so much either - mainly because it was cold. The salad was a lot of cucumbers, tomatoes & onions with some dressing on the side - it was okay.
Overall - I didn't love it. I really didn't even like it. It all had a bit of an after taste.
I want to admit though - I'm not a vegetarian or vegan - so MAYBE it's just not my taste palette. I have enjoyed this type of food (minus the eggplant) at other places though so...????
I think we should have both gone for sandwiches - I probably would have been a happier (and more full) customer. Especially since I see a mushroom, mozzarella & tomato panini on the menu - but I felt like I should try some of the more Mediterranean items rather than a panini.
Why Should You Go? I think if you're a meat-lover, you probably shouldn't. But if you're leaning vegetarian or vegan - check it out. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive as well.
I will say - we had a $20 restaurant.com and still had to pay $16 with drinks & tip. But we did get an appetizer, etc...
