Ahlan wa Sahlan!
Ahlan wa Sahlan! In Arabic, this means both “hello” and “welcome.” So, hello and welcome to our blog! At Hummus & Falafel, we believe in food as an expression of culture. Our mission is to bring the taste of the Middle East to Allendale and the Greater Grand Rapids Area and to familiarize our customers with Middle Eastern food, health, culture, kindness, and hospitality. We want to bring people together and bridge the gap between strangers and friends. What better way to do that than by getting to know each other? This is where our blog comes in. We’ll be posting healthy Syrian recipes straight from the kitchen of our chef Reem Al Asmi, tidbits about Syrian culture, and story spotlights of various Syrians living in the Greater Grand Rapids area so that you can get to know us and where we come from better. But how can we get to know YOU? Leave us comments, follow us on Facebook, and most importantly come chat with us! We’re so excited to meet you and can’t wait to host you at our Allendale location.
