Middle Eastern in Ipanema & Leblon

One of the few casual dining options on the upscale culinary street of Dias Ferreira, Yalla is a small, quick-serving restaurant where you can pick up fresh tabbouleh or couscous salads, sandwiches on lavash bread (shawarma, falafel and shish kebab), or pasties filled with ricotta, beef or spinach. For something heartier, opt for lamb with couscous or moussaka (an eggplant and beef dish).
