Pass through the doors of Ahuva’s Grill and be transported to an authentic Yemenite Israeli kitchen where homemade soups are slow-cooked for hours and flavorful meats are marinated a full day before serving.
The family-owned and operated glatt kosher restaurant, which opened last month in Hewlett, already has locals packed inside its walls each evening – and with good reason. Chef Ahuva Tsadok, the restaurant’s namesake, begins cooking each day before dawn, relying on years of experience and memories of the Mediterranean tastes of home from her native Yemen.
Be sure to try a bowl of Ahuva’s Grill’s most popular dish, Yemenite soup ($9.95), which comes with a choice of chicken, beef or calf leg that is simmered for four hours and expertly paired with crispy kubbaneh bread and hot sauce.
A variety of fresh salads, including tahina, matbucha and babaganoush ($4.95 – $6.95) wet the palate while you wait for your main course, which includes mouthwatering choices like meat kebabs ($14.95 – $18.95), fried chicken breast schnitzel in a pita ($15.95), and broiled salmon filet ($23.95).
An assortment of side dishes round out the hearty menu and include mejadara (lentils and rice, $5.95), grilled vegetable skewers ($3.95), spicy fries ($4.95) and white rice ($5.95). A children’s menu, with prices ranging from $3.25 to $7.95, offers fare like mini hamburger ($4.95) and chicken nuggets with chips ($7.95).
Ahuva’s Grill is located at 1326 Peninsula Blvd within the Peninsula Shopping Center in Hewlett. Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. To place a reservation, call (516) 341-0400. Ahuva’s Grill is glatt kosher and is under the supervision of the VAAD of the Five Towns.
