Kaslik Mediterranean Cuisine

Staff Pick

North Lindbergh Boulevard in Hazelwood doesn't exactly seem like a hotbed of international cuisine. Yet tucked amid the chain restaurants and strip malls, Kaslik seeks to convince diners otherwise. Chef and co-owner Wesam Hamed, whose résumé includes such notable spots as Ranoush and Layla, has been cooking his delicious Middle Eastern fare in this part of north St. Louis County since 2013. This year the restaurant moved into a new, expanded location, but those already in the know shouldn't fret: Hamed's signature shawarma remains excellent as always. Likewise, the lamb chops, falafel and hummus are so authentic, you might be convinced you're sitting on the eastern Mediterranean rather than in the middle of north county. It's well worth the trip off the beaten path. 7847 North Lindbergh Boulevard, Hazelwood, 63042. 314-972-8282,
