Why Come Here? Unique Middle Eastern inspired cuisine, rustic, relaxed atmosphere
On north Mulberry, a street once again rendered useful to food lovers thanks to the likes of Torrisi, Rubirosa, lies Balaboosta. The space itself is rustic and casual with a small open kitchen in the back. The best way to describe the food is Middle Eastern inspired. This leads to many interesting flavor combinations which means I can pretty much guarantee you’ll experience a taste sensation you’ve never had before. And in case you need more convincing, it’s from the team behind
Taim, makers of the city’s best falafel sandwich.
I’ve been here twice and there are lots of small plates on the menu, so I’ve narrowed the list below to my top picks. For more reviews and photos, please check DishEnvy.
