Famous Dishes

Camel Rider Sandwich

Nabeel’s Café & Market in Homewood, known for its authentic Mediterranean cuisine, presents a hearty sandwich known as the Camel Rider. This classic staple just has something to it that keeps customers coming back. The packed pita pocket is like a cornucopia of deli fare, chock-full of premium roast beef, bologna, salami and provolone cheese along with lettuce, tomato, pickle, mayonnaise and mustard.


It’s a favored dish in Greece, but if you want moussaka in Alabama, you’ve got to get to Nabeel’s. This Mediterranean-inspired casserole is layered first with grilled eggplant, then a heaping of sautéed ground beef and onions with béchamel poured over all. Spoiler alert: The béchamel, a Nabeel’s family recipe, bakes into a thick layer of creamy perfection! Finally, the dish is garnished with tomato fondue.
