Ever since the folks at Anita's kitchen claimed the old ice-cream shop on Woodward Avenue as their own, gave it a chic, contemporary makeover and filled it with the smells of Anita Farah's classic Lebanese fare, loyal foodies have been naming Anita's Kitchen the best Middle Eastern Cuisine in Oakland County. Made with only the freshest ingredients, menu highlights include the roasted red pepper hummus, the out-of-this-world mujadara (topped with the most perfect caramelized onions: perfectly crispy, perfectly sweet), and their falafel, which comes baked or fried depending on your preference. The lentil soup, bursting with the taste of fresh lemon, is a must. Also, you'll find a surprising and welcome choice of Michigan beers available.
