Three To Try: Shakshuka

December 9, 2016

Writing about Hoof Hearted this week had me thinking about a couple versions of shakshuka (or shakshouka) we’ve tried recently. What is shakshuka? It’s a North African dish that’s become popular along many parts along the Mediterranean, especially in Israel. At its core, it’s a dish of eggs cooked in a sauce of tomatoes, onions, and peppers, with a wide variety of interpretations. If you’d like to try three versions in Columbus, start here!

1. The Market Italian Village – The Market is well known to me as a stop on my breakfast tour. Their quiet and casual setting is a lovely spot for brunch (or coffee/lunch/dinner/drinks) if you haven’t discovered it yet. Their new brunch menu includes shakshuka, with poached eggs dropped in a tomato/red pepper sauce, then topped with feta and crispy chickpeas.

2. The Olive Tree – This Mediterranean eatery in Hilliard features a Sunday breakfast with five types of shakshuka: the classic version, a Moroccan one with spicy sausage, a Greek one with feta, another with fried eggplant, and one with hummus.

3. Hoof Hearted Brewery & Kitchen – Amongst Hoof Hearted’s eclectic brunch menu is a hearty shakshuka covered with cheese and served with lamb sausage.
