Aladdin's Natural Eatery: Healthy and Affordable
Fruit and Nut Salad an enormous hit with our 3yr old; fresh fruit on top of yogurt, nuts and granola, topped with honey.
Falafel comes as either a salad or a pita; our pita was huge - chick pea and fava bean patties were nice and crisp with a hint of warm spice and surrounded by fresh greens, tomatoes and sprouts.
Chicken Souvalki the marinated chicken kabobs were dreamy, tangy and moist, the vinaigrette dressing was a wonderful complement to the feta on the Greek salad - highly recommended.
Mediterranean Salad is a flavorful mix of greens, creamy goat cheese and plentiful marinated grilled eggplant.
Cuisine: Mediterranean + Middle Eastern
Ever wondered why most of the Cornell students look so thin and healthy? Could it be because they eat at Aladdin's Natural Eatery? Maybe. Aladdin's serves a Mediterranean diet that has been touted as one of the healthiest on the planet, Alladin's adds to that by making the food very affordable. It is easy to like Alladin's; the space is open and bright; ample outside dining with cooling umbrellas; the food is fresh, healthy and very affordable - no wonder the Cornell crowd packs this place each night.
