              Sahadi is good but always seems to be packed with but always seems to be packed with relocated to Brooklyn Heights, Omaha and Grand Rapids natives and their strollers.
              I prefer the place across Atlantic Ave, I think it's called Malko.

              1. re: Motosport

                I depends on when you go. If you can get there during the week, during the day, it's much more civilized. For what it's worth, I don't think strollers are allowed in the store. I don't know that I've ever seen one... but if you go there when it's really crowded you may not even notice them!

                Actually the only reason I go to Sahadi's is because they have an inexpensive olive oil I absolutely love: Saifan, from Lebanon. It's worth the trip and the hassle!

                Thanks for the tip on the place across the street. I'll check that out next time I need olive oil.

            2. The best meal I had in 2011 was at Frankie's 457 on Court St (technically Carroll Gardens). We had the Frankie's Antipasto for starters. My buddy had the pork braciola marina which was excellent, but my choice, House-made Pappardelle with Braised Lamb, Tomato, Tarragon & Frankies Olive Oil was absolutely amazing. it's an amazing place, but beware...it gets crowded we were told (we went for lunch on a rainy day).

              I don't live there anymore, but I know that Sahadi's is still the best place to get hummus, baba ganhouj and olives!

              Back in the day, Tripoli was an amazing restaurant. Right on the corner of Atlantic and Clinton.

              1. re: jhopp217

                do any of the lesser known competitors on Atlantic Avenue sell hummus or olives that are as good as Sahadis?

                1. re: AubWah

                  I am not a fan of the hummus at Sahadi's. I think the hummus and taboleh at Fatoosh on Hicks is much better.

                    Has anyone tried the new incarnation Mocha Hooka (fka Fountain)? I used to like their hummus the best but haven't got around to trying the new one.

                  Been to Frankie's once a year ago and it was fabulous.
                  Most of the middle eastern grocery stores and Damascus bakery sell the same hummus, baba and olives as Sahadi. It's all good!!
                  The place across the street has olives, grains and coffee in barrels and huge bags. Not to knock Sahadi but I prefer the more intimate setting at the smaller places. You'll see local Syrians and Lebanese neighbors shopping there.

                  1. re: Motosport

                    damasus is one of my favorite places in the city! i love their hummus, and the 1 dollar bags of fresh, homemade pita triangles cant be beaten anywhere. and don't forget about their 4-dollar falafel sandwich! plus, the guys who work there are so nice.

                      I stock up on their meat and spinach pies whenever I am in the neighborhood. Double zip lock them and put them in the freezer.
