Looking for recommendations on Halal restaurants in Austin.

The Halal restaurants that I've eaten at are: Al Borz, Jerusalem Deli, Cleopatra's, Madras Pavilion, Shalimar, and Student Biryani. I'm also interested in restaurants that serve Middle Eastern cuisine that aren't Halal since I'm not muslim, but since I have a couple of muslim friends I'd like to find a couple of new places where we can share some good eats.

BTW, anyone know of a place that serves the green (fava bean) Lebanese falafel. The only places I've ever had them were in Egypt and Israel. All I can ever seem to find is the yellow Turkish variety with garbonzo beans.

  1. Try Pars deli, at Burnet and 183 (SW corner, next to Trudy's). I think that they have the fava falafel, but it has been a while since I've been there...

    1. It's not middle eastern, but if you like Indian, I recently went to Swad on N. Lamar and it is easily close to the best Indian food I've eaten here in Austin... plus it's all vegetarian there.
