Best Syrian Flatbread Wrap: Baladi

The Barazi family opened Baladi in Clifton in 2017, serving a broad menu of Arabic eats with an emphasis on desserts and welcoming hospitality. On the list of dishes, you’ll find familiar hits with influences from Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan. But branch out and try something you won’t find on other Middle Eastern-leaning menus, like their Syrian flatbread wrap. The wrap isn’t just your normal pita pocket filled with falafel — it uses unleavened Syrian flatbread as the wrapper. Filling options include fried eggplant, cauliflower and potato; ground beef and lamb; beef; and rotisserie chicken with French fries inside.
