      Hello, f. I am not familiar with Arab cuisine. I will have to look that up and see what kinds of food they offer!

      YW and, pedrn44, interesting you should say Greek, because when we used to eat out more than we do now we had Greek sometimes and what was called Greek with the pita seemed to be just the same as Arab/Middle Eastern; all delicious.

      They are tasty. Feta cheese is a common ingredient in many mediterranean dishes and I love them all! Greek food has always been one of my faves! Thanks for the vote, f.

      Voted up. These are really tasty, too. I think that very similar things called by different names, exist as a dish that originates from various Mediterranean/ Mid-Eastern countries.
