Chicago is certainly a melting pot of cultures in more ways than one. Now, it seems Middle Eastern cuisine is gearing up to make its mark on the Windy City’s food scene. If you are looking to embark on a gastronomic feast on the somewhat exotic side, we highly recommend that you give Galit a try.

This Middle Eastern place is what many would call a small-plates restaurant. Conveniently located in the heart of Lincoln Park, it never fails to draw in a crowd of diners. That being said, you should probably make your reservations.

Of course, the most important thing, as with any restaurant, is the quality of food being served. In this regard, Galit never fails to impress. Everything on the menu is great and certainly worth a try. Listed below are some of the standout dishes.

  • The Falafel – This dish is light and crispy, giving the diners much to look forward to.
  • The Hummus – It is certainly one of the scene stealers in the menu. We highly recommend you try the one topped with the great brisket.

Be sure to try everything on the menu to get the full experience.
