The biggest and most established of Richardson's Iraqi eateries is Bilad Bakery and Restaurant, which in five years of operation has blossomed into a favorite neighborhood spot. Bilad builds darn good sandwiches. Beef shawarma straight off the spit is well-seasoned and juicy, and it plays well with Bilad’s mix of pickles, tomatoes and green bell peppers. The falafel is also satisfying and paired with crisp veggies, although in both cases the well-made bread, crisp on the outside and pillowy within, steals the show. Bilad’s hummus is creamy, garlicky and excellent, its tabbouleh fresh. There are two eggplant dips, a superb smoky baba ghannouj and another which differs by still having large chunks of the vegetable mixed in. Main course platters lean on the restaurant’s good beef and chicken shawarma, which arrive in generous quantities along with hummus, onions, a hearty shake of sumac and enough pita bread to make a flock of sandwiches.
