If you like Mediterranean food, you now have a new option in Louisville. Al Hamra is located at 1250 Bardstown Road in Mid City Mall.
The owner, Ibrahim Qasim, says his family is originally from Jordan and Jerusalem. He wanted to offer authentic Middle Eastern food to people here in the Louisville area. The family also operates Falafel House off of Bardstown Road.
Al Hamra is a buffet open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Qasim said you can expect all of your traditional Mediterranean favorites that include vegan, vegetarian, meat, halal, and kosher foods.
The restaurant opened in the middle of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Qasim says he plans to have extended hours during that time so customers who are fasting have a place to eat.
