Golden Restaurant & Bakery in Tempe is a Middle Eastern restaurant with a menu steeped in Levantine culinary tradition, including excellent versions of mezze classics like hummus, baba ganoush, and ful. The restaurant’s specialty, however, is flatbread. The menu boasts more than 30 varieties of flatbreads, including manakeesh za’atar, a thin orb topped with olive oil and a traditional thyme and sesame seed spice blend. Small plates of slow-cooked meats are another highlight, especially mugalgal, cubed beef slow-cooked in a spicy tomato and cilantro blend. Don’t leave without trying one of the homemade desserts, which includes kenafa, a rich, cheesy cake covered in thin, sugary strips of semolina dough.
