This week they're menu includes a falafel in pita with Israeli salad, or a rice bowl with curried veggies or lentils. Warm up with a cup of hot chai tea and celebrate carnival season with a slice of their special kosher king cake, a King David Cake!  Lunch doesn’t get much tastier!

Eat local and find more fresh veggies at the Hollygrove Market.   You can go by their location at 8301 Olive Street Monday  thru Friday 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sundays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  They also have home delivery if you can't make it to the Market - Click here to find out how - http://www.hollygrovemarket.com/content/5669
