So, I tried Medina in Richardson (right off 75 on Main in one of my favorite dining areas) after eating at Souk and it was a great little spot. The specialty is a dish similar (but much better than) Halal Guys, which is meat over rice with a sauce and vegetables. I can’t recall if Halal Guys had the vegetables to chose from because it simply wasn’t a memorable dining experience, but I can tell you that these made the dish – especially the pickles. Next time I might double up on the pickles.
This is legit – foreign language spoken by guests, a very nice owner who personally asked about everything, and lots of nearby competition. Worth the visit.
FYI, Medina is the old Arab or non-European part of a North African town. It also is the second most important city in Islam (meaning ‘City of the Prophet”).
