Nabil Chehab and his family have run a Middle Eastern market at this spot for six years, with a previous location before that. The market smells complicated, of licoricey fennel seeds, musty burlap sacks of dried fava beans and fruity Chiclets with swirly Arabic writing on the back. More than half of the items on the short Middle Eastern menu are vegetarian, many of them making good use of excellent Sami's pita (the Tampa bakery is owned by Chehab's family members). You get a basket piled with warm rounds. Rip off a hunk and dab your way through hummus), baba ghanouj or tangy white labneh. Or scoop up refreshing bulgur tabbouleh or crunchy ground garbanzo falafel balls moistened with tahini. More accustomed to takeout, the staff can be flummoxed by dine-in customers.
