Laffa Medi-Eastern Restaurant & Bar
Named after traditional Israeli flat bread, Laffa Medi-Eastern Restaurant & Bar in Tulsa combines Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine to provide a peaceful, shared dining culture.
Start your Laffa experience at a relaxed pace with good conversation over mezze-small hot and cold plates created to be shared in a peaceful setting. Create your mezze by choosing three or six plates from a dozen delights including tabouli, tzatziki, black eyed pea hummus or roasted ras el hanout cauliflower salad. For a heartier appetizer, share the falafel balls, Laffa’s caprese salad, Maghreb nachos, or Za’atar Haydari, a creamy olive, feta and Arabic spice dip. All meals come with the restaurant's freshly-made namesake laffa bread.
Once it’s time for the main course, enjoy one of Laffa’s hearty Mediterranean salads or soups. In addition to standard regional fare, kebabs, keftedakia and schawarma, tongue in cheek entrée names color the menu such as “The best darn beef tagine this side of Casablanca,” “Royale sultan burger…with no cheese” or “Esau soup.”
Finish your meal with one of Laffa’s tempting array of desserts. Savor the Turkish delight, Sabbath sundae, semolina and almond cake soaked in orange water syrup, Basboussa or Om Ali, an Egyptian bread pudding substituting pastry for bread.
