I got an email about Shouk’s new locatin’s special of buy one, get one free. Since we were already visiting the Union Market and Shouk is not that far, we gave the cafe a try. What we tried was pretty good but I don’t know if I would return and pay the full price that often. You had a choice of pita, rice and lentils or greens for your base.

Eggplant potato, pickled cabbage, red pepper, onion, tahina, amba
The eggplant was very good and perfect for a hungry person. A couple more slices of the crisped potatoes would have been nice. We enjoyed the tahina and amba, a  pickled mango condiment.

Shouk Burger roasted tomato, pickled turnip, arugula, charred onion, tahina
The shouk burger was a combination of all kind of veggies such as chickpeas, mushrooms and black beans. It had a nice crust and perfect for healthy eaters. Roasted tomatoes added moisture and acidity to the dish.
