On the southeast corner of the Al-Aqsa Mosque resides one of the great neighborhood treasures, Al-Amana Grocery & Restaurant . For the last 10 years, the Dabbor family has run the Al-Amana Grocery & Restaurant specializing in Middle Eastern food. Dalal (center) and Amer (right) came to the US from Syria over 20 years ago. All three of their sons, Moahz, Jawad, and Anas (left) were born in the US. Anas began working with his parents at the young age of 14. Fast forward ten years later and he is helping his parents run Al-Amana.
Dalal, Amer, and Anas have been working tirelessly alongside the American Street Feast team as a major dinner partner to help prepare a delicious experience for all! Stop by Al-Amana for delicious Middle Eastern fare or stock up on your Mediterranean staples for a feast of your own.
You can find Dalal, Amer, and Anas just behind Al-Aqsa Mosque at 1506 N Cadwallader Street every day from 10:30 am to 8:30 pm. Keep an eye out for the glowing "open" sign and your nose open for delicious smells.
