Sahara: A Taste of the Middle East

by Courtney Estaphan - Tech News Staff

If you like Lebanese and Middle Eastern Cuisine, then Sahara is the best in town. I visited the Sahara on Friday for lunch, the food, service, and atmosphere were perfect. My mom and I started off our lunch with hummos for an appetizer. For those that do not know hummos is made from chic peas, oil and garlic, and you eat it with syrian bread or pita bread, by dipping it into the hummos. This particular plate of hummos was really good, it had a little extra garlic flavor to it, but I liked it like that. For a meal I ordered eggplant salad, and my mom ordered a lamb kabob sandwich. Both plates were awesome. The eggplant was similar to tabbouleh, and the lamb was very tender, and very tasty.

Overall, our meal came to fifteen dollars, which is very reasonable for the serving sizes that we received, and I could not have had a better lunch. So, I highly recommend you visit Sahara at some point during your WPI career and enjoy a delicious Middle Eastern meal. Sahara is located right on the corner of Highland and West Street, next to Store 24. They also have live music on scheduled Friday and Saturday nights.
