Shakshuka, a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions, is on the menu at Moshe's Golden Falafel as of this week.
It's all part of a new breakfast menu chef Andrew Weissman is testing out this summer that includes Israeli faves such as labneh with fresh fruit and granola; house-made French toast with passed egg, red onions, avocado and garlic labneh; and an Isreali breakfast of warm hummus, Israeli salad, savory labneh, baba ganoush and fresh pita. Prices range from $9 to $15.
The menu rounds out with French pastries, juices and French press and espresso-based drinks. Pour-over coffee is also in the works.
"I wanted to offer something you're not likely to see anywhere in town," said Weissman.
The breakfast menu is available from 7 to 10:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday at least through the summer, but Weissman hinted at more items making their way through the menu including halloumi (a Greek semi-soft cheese), chickpeas and salads in the coming weeks.
While lunch is still Moshe's bread and butter (or hummus and pita in this case), chef is also toying with the idea of offering a late night menu Friday and Saturday so long as the area supports it.
