Hidden Treasures: Middle Eastern food in Utah

A local favorite, the Mazza cafe offers the best, award winning middle eastern food in Utah. Originally started as a deli at it’s original 15th & 15th location, owner Ali Sabbah has grown this cafe into two full service restaurants.

Stop by the cute original neighborhood location for a quiet dining experience, or head to the hopping 9th & 9th restaurant were Ali Sabbah can be found chatting with diners.

Among my favorite dishes are the baba ganooj, house salad, the Chicken Shawarma sandwich, and the Chicken and Cauliflower Kabseh. Don’t miss the fries with the aiol dipping sauce; they are among the best Salt Lake City has to offer. Mazza offers both local and imported foods and drinks and offers an extensive selection of vegetarian and vegan offerings.

Mazza is definitely must visit location when in Salt Lake City. Come early, this place might be packed.
