Best Middle Eastern 

Za’atar

2310 N. Country Club Road

People absolutely rave about Za’atar. It’s one of those places where you don’t even want to start eating right away; you want to just sit for a while and smell stuff. There are the pita and flatbreads that are baked in a brick oven that owner Ari Baban built by hand. There is the hummus used in the appetizers and the chicken shish-kebab. The word za’atar actually means thyme, but it’s more generally used to mean a blend of spices used in Middle Eastern cooking. They also offer an array of sandwiches, which are your choice of falafel, shawarmas and gyros. Some people go there for the Arabic coffee, which is to regular coffee what Lady Gaga is to understated fashion. A Tucson delight.
