Is a thriving part of Berkeley’s Middle Eastern food nexus with halvah by the tub, soft flat Afghan bread, and eye-poppingly hot harissa sauce.
Tucked away behind the Bank Club is a horseshoe counter with stool seating. Sit down and either Wally or one of his friendly employees will greet you with a bowl of hot, spicy lentil soup. No, you didn't order it, nor did you order the baklava that will arrive with your bill. Tuck in, you're in good hands with this crew. Wally bills the fare as "Mediterranean & More," and that's an understatement.
