Afrah may be one of the most well-known Middle Eastern restaurants in the Dallas area — a fact that can likely be attributed to its origin as a sweets shop when it first opened in Richardson. The restaurant that followed, though, is anything but a run-of-the-mill kebab house. The breads are freshly baked on-site and arrive warn and soft, while skewered meats come out charred and blackened in spots, yet remain juicy and tender. During lunch, there's a buffet where you can eat tabouleh and hummus till your stomach pops, along with most of the rest of the menu. And the best part about Afrah is they never gave up on those sweets, and have only added to them. How many Middle Eastern restaurants do you know that will serve gelato along with baklava after your meal?
