Review of Little Egypt Restaurant May 19, 2002, by Caye Caswick.

Little Egypt is located at 7216 W. College Drive, Palos Heights, IL. Phone: 708-923-0392

The Restaurant Rovers on this occasion numbering 14 ( 12 adults and 2 children) visited Little Egypt Restaurant at the above address after Divine Liturgy on Sunday, May 19, 2002. Luckily we had the restaurant mostly to ourselves, since we had a really boisterous (and fun) time. The fare was as follows:

Appetizers/Salads: Middle-Eastern appetizers (known as mazza) consisted of: hummus made from chickpeas; baba ghanouj made from eggplant; and refreshing, slightly crunchy tabbouleh, all served with flat bread cut into wedges. These, plus two salads containing tomato, cucumber, parsley and croutons, one dressed in oil and vinegar, the other dressed in a creamy yogurt dressing were refreshing. We also were served stuffed grape leaves, (called mah-she).

Main Dishes: We were served huge platters of: shawerma beef rubbed with zesty spices then grilled; kufta (ground lamb sausage); and shish taouk (chunks of chicken breast) all three of which were grilled and topped a large (no, make that huge) mound of tasty rice (yellow in color, did I detect saffron?) and vegetables.

Desserts: Egyptian baklava (called katafi) was great and was accompanied by fruit platters consisting of fresh pineapple, grapes and cantaloupe, healthful and delicious!

Owner, Mary Alexander, a veteran of the hotel and restaurant industry, was down-to-earth and friendly in several visits to our table to introduce herself and to explain the dishes which are all made to order. Our server handled all 14 of us working alone and hailed from Lithuania, quite the international experience.

If you are looking for something different but would still like to be on the healthy side, this would be an excellent choice – also good for groups and families. Little Egypt also serves fish dishes and other appetizers as well as other desserts. I also read that they have live entertainment on some nights, and a bar.
