Al Bawadi, an eatery sequestered in a Plantation strip mall, serves typical Mediterranean fare like hummus, falafel, and kebabs. Its interior is drab and dimly lit, looking more like a banquet hall than a proper restaurant. But what makes up for the lack of scene are some fine takes on Mediterranean classics. Al Bawadi's falafel, in particular, arrives crisp and greaseless and perfect with the amazing hummus authentically served with a pool of lemon juice and olive oil in the center. Add some warm pita bread and homemade salads of tabbouleh and tomato and this is great, cheap street food - no matter what the environment is like.
