  • Mon.-Sat., 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Sun., 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
Damasq Cafe s is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Corona del Mar. There’s the expected kabobs, shawerma, and falafel—all delicious, all accompanied by a thundering toum (garlic sauce) that’ll flare your nostrils like a good wasabi. But owner Jamal Diab is at his best when he’s cooking the specialties of his homeland. A plate of sauteed eggplants is almost as hearty as meat, spiced beautifully and served alongside perfectly tart tabbouli. He also prepares muhamara, Aleppo’s famous walnut-chile-pomegranate spread: slightly spicy, quietly sweet, better than hummus by miles. And the fried kibbeh, a carnivorous version of falafel made with bulgur wheat and beef, is a crunchy paradise.
