food: Amba


Tucked away in a small store front on Mountain Blvd. in Montclair is Amba. If you're looking for fancy food in a location oozing with ambiance, this is not the place. But if you're looking for good vegetarian and/or kosher food, check out Amba.

There are all the traditional items like falafel, pita, hummus, etc. But they also have interesting pita sandwiches, a daily "pitza", and an array of yummy salads. If there are two or more of you, try the Mezze Platter, which gives you a sample of most everything and was more than enough food for K and I.

Amba also does catering, and a lot of their business is take-out (we've had take-out from there more than we've eaten in). The restaurant itself is nothing fancy, but clean and nicely decorated, with photos from the Middle East adorning the walls. And if you're looking for a spot to watch sports, they even have a 50" TV. Sadly, the beer selection is currently only Corona (gah!), but hopefully they'll improve on that.
