Dimassi’s is the progenitor of the Middle Eastern cafeteria-style restaurants that are now popular in Houston.

As long demonstrated by Dimassi’s, Middle Eastern fare is well-suited to cafeteria service.  Many dishes really cannot be prepared to order, and are created in batches such as the salads and dips like tabouli, hummas and baba ganoush.  These dishes are reliably good at Dimassi’s. 

Other appetizers can include kibbe balls, grape leaves stuffed with beef and rice, cabbage rolls, falafel, chicken pita rolls, feta cheese toast, Lebanese salad, and a Greek salad. for the main course, choose from a variety of meats and vegetables.  And for dessert choose from an array of Middle Eastern sweets.

Dimassi’s has several locations in the Houston area. For more information, see the Dimassi’s web site.
