Garapan, 96950 马里亚那群岛
Love the shawarma. Love their hummus. I wish they were open on the weekends. I believe credit cards are only accepted on certain days.
Having spent 25 years in the Middle East myself - I was just recently commenting to a coworker here on Saipan that I sure wish there was an Arabic/Middle Eastern Restaurant here on the Island. Little did I know that one was recently opened by a Palestinian-American businessman who also owns one of the two local newspapers, - the Marianas Variety. . I might have missed it because it is in a somewhat odd location off any major roads. In fact it is in a small white building directly next to the offices of the Marianas Variety newspaper. If you are coming from Garapan and heading south - just as you pass Kristo Rai Church - you will find a road running alongside the churches parking lot with a four or five story Japanese office building on the opposite side of this road – heading south on Beach Road coming from Garapan town center take a left on to the road that runs alongside Kristo Rai Church and the 5 story Japanese office building - and then take the first right in back of the Japanese office building and go down about a quarter of a mile and you will see on the right hand side - the light blue two-story offices for the Marianas Variety newspaper and right before that – you will see a small white one-story building with a small parking lot and the sign - "Caravan 'Healthy Food'" - You can of course call for directions at 234-0638 or 888-1609. Anyway once you found the place you will have found the only Middle Eastern eatery on the Island - - probably the only one in Micronesia. If you're familiar with Arabic food - they have many of the standard fare such as Falafel, Shawarma, little Middle Eastern Pizzas called "Home Pita." - Eggplant done in variety of ways - a Hummus combination plate with olives and zatar - which they have named, "The Palestinian Spread." - The also have a cucumber and yogurt salad and a green salad. They have of course the standard Kebabs and Sheshlik available with beef chicken or lamb. Having spent more than two decades in the Middle East I h
