Tamam Fine Palestinian Vancouver (Sunrise) | Middle Eastern Mujaddarah

This is my special corner. I love the light in this sun room. Tamam Fine Palestinian Vancouver on 2616 E Hastings Street. There are not many high quality Middle Eastern restaurants in Vancouver. And although I hold Nuba dear to my heart – you simply can not have it on heavy rotation too much. I don’t want to ruin it to become same-same. If you are not on a look out for Tamam, it could be easily missed- hidden amongst groceries, markets and coffee shops. We came to Tamam after a dear friend’s recommendation. Prices here are fairly priced. Service is friendly and the atmosphere is neighborly.

The sun room where we dine grows fresh herbs which Tamam Fine Palestinian uses in their dishes. Mint, rosemary, lavender, cilantro, etc. They even have an olive tree. The olive tree can be finicky to grow.

Hummus 5.50: chickpeas, tahini, garlic and olives oil. We liked the herb garnishes and pepper flakes. Tamam’s hummus is served warm with a side of hot sauce. The hot sauce is a puree of jalapenos, garlic and olive oil. It is very tasty mixed with the hummus.

Eggplant Salad 9.50: grilled eggplant, grilled tomato, parsley, roasted almonds, raisins, olive oil. I love this salad of sweet and salty. Raisins gives it a nice tangy sweetness and almonds gives it a nice crunch. This salad is very refreshing. I like how the eggplants are diced and mixed into the salad.

Fish Fillet with Mujaddarah 17.50: Halibut with rosemary, sage, garlic, olive oil and lemon. Your choice of Freekeb or mujaddarah and salad. We loved the pickled cabbage and veggies. The fish was flakey and nicely sized. The mujaddarah is cooked lentils together with rice, and garnished with sauteed onions. This lentil pilaf is a nice gluten free meal.

 

Tamam Fine Palestinian is a nice alternative to Nuba Lebanese in Downtown. Sometimes when you are in the Tri-Cities, Downtown Vancouver simply is too far of a drive.
