Solomon's Restaurant in Raleigh, NC
Has Closed.


For a number of years this was the website for Solomon's Restaurant in Raleigh, NC. As of July 5th 2012, the two brothers, Victor Khoury and Elias Khoury who owned Solomon's Mediterranean Restaurants, re-opened Saints and Scholars Irish Pub, to make it the hidden gem of North Raleigh. For a while the Solomon’s web site redirected to the Saints and Scholars Pub website. Eventually the Solomon's Restaurant site's domain registration expired and the site has new owners who remembers both Solomon's Restaurant and when in Raleigh, visits Saints and Scholars Pub. They have decided to take the site back to its original content as a nostalgic salute to Solomon's Restaurant. Solomon's Restaurant may be no more, but the memories linger.
According to Yelpers Solomon's Restaurant is closed.

Content is from the site's archived pages, approximately from 2003 -2007.

Recipes

The world-renowned chefs at Solomon's keep their recipes a closely guarded secret but while Solomon wasn't looking we managed to sneak a peek into the cookbook. Almost caught in the act we managed to come away with ...

Taboulleh Salad

1 cup dry bulgur or cracked wheat
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon and/or lime juice
1 clove crushed fresh garlic
1/4 cup good olive oil

1 packed cup freshly chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped scallions (including greens)
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried mint
Fresh black pepper

Optional:
1/2 cup cooked chickpeas and/or
1/2 cup coarsely grated carrot and/or
1 chopped green pepper and/or
1 chopped cucumber or summer squash
 

About 3 hours before serving:

The bulgur wheat needs at least 3 hours to thoroughly soak, marinate and chill. Combine bulgur wheat, 1-1/2 cups of boiling water and salt in a bowl. Cover and let stand for 15-30 minutes or until bulgur is chewable. Add lemon juice, garlic, oil and mint, and mix thoroughly. Leave covered and refrigerate.

About 20 minutes before serving:

Prepare remaining ingredients and combine in a large bowl. Add prepared bulgur wheat and mix gently correcting seasonings as needed. To give it a gourmet touch add some crumbled feta cheese and kalamata olives. Serve with fresh pita or pocket pita bread.

Makes 6-8 servings.


Lentil Rice Pilaf

1 cup long-grain rice
1/4 cup dried lentils
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic minced or crushed
2 cubes or envelopes chicken bouillon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon good olive oil

For the best flavor use chicken stock in place of bouillon and water and use a high quality olive oil.

About 25 minutes before serving:

In a small saucepan add 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup of dried lentils. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and drain.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat add 2 cups of water and the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and add the prepared lentils. Reduce the heat to very low, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Makes 6 servings.

We will continue to lurk around the kitchen for more opportunities to uncover these secret recipes so be sure to check back once in a while.
