Rad Patio - Mama's Bakery and Lebanese Deli - North Park

Mama’s Bakery and Lebanese Deli in North Park has been baking fresh flatbread since 1988 on a traditional sajj convex oven, which has been in use in the Mediterranean for over 2,000 years.

A prime example of what Rad Patio is all about, Mama’s west-facing outdoor patio catches the best of the afternoon sunshine, which brings out the narcotic aroma of blossoming jasmine from Live Wire next door. The adjacent covered patio seats about twenty and is decorated with images of Lebanon such as the Sidon Sea Castle, built by the Crusaders in 1228.

Mama’s flatbread is used in over 15 types of wraps including falafel, hummus, beef and chicken shawarma, fried eggplant, and stuffed grape leaf. My favorite, hands down, is the Manakeesh Ultimate ($4.75) - flatbread spread with thyme, olive oil, and sesame seeds, and filled with tomatoes, olives, mint, and lebni, a rich yogurt cream cheese.

Substitute kalamata olives instead of black olives, if you’re into that sort of thing, and add chicken or beef ($6.49) for a hearty meal which makes a formidable contender with the myriad of nearby California burrito’s for Tastiest Lunch Possible.

Grab some fresh garlic paste ($.75) on the side and taste the magic all day long.

Mama’s offers a unique selection of natural soft drinks in their fridge. Try the Mate Mojito on a hot summer day and, of course, sit yourself on the patio.
