Only in Houston can you find a place that serves authentic Mediterranean fare like falafel and baba ganoush, alongside some of the best down-home fried chicken anywhere. Welcome to Al Aseel Grill & Café.
This west side Middle Eastern restaurant offers a menu of traditional favorites that includes chicken and beef kebabs, tabouli and Greek salad along with specialties like the stuffed pigeons and the quail platter. The rather small eatery is known for its inexpensive prices and large portions.
But it’s the fried chicken that keeps patrons coming back. Cited as some of the best in the South by Southern Living, the chicken is crispy and juicy, with just the right amount of spice.
