Al-Hana Restaurant at Baiz Market

523 N. 20th St. Phoenix, AZ 85006 | Central Phoenix | 602-252-8996

Location Description:

This tiny restaurant is basically a sectioned-off corner of Baiz Market, a Middle Eastern grocery store tucked away on a residential stretch of 20th Street, between Van Buren and Roosevelt. But despite the unlikely location, the place draws a steady, diverse stream of customers. Step up to the counter to order a tasty shish taook plate or a hefty shawarma sandwich, and don't be surprised to see the cook pulling a long tray of freshly baked pita out of the oven. After gorging on hummus, be sure to make a pilgrimage to the dessert mecca at back of the store, where there's shelf after shelf of Middle Eastern pastries - everything from sticky, honey-drenched baklava, to neat squares of namoura (cake) topped with nuts, to maamoul (filled cookies) dusted in confectioner's sugar.
