Nestled next to the Bagel Deli on Seattle's Capitol Hill is our bright and airy Lebanese restaurant, Karam's. It all started twenty-two or so (1987) years ago just after Anis completed his Ph.D. in Public Administration. During study breaks, you would find Anis and I (Julie) in the kitchen perfecting family recipes. Our friends loved our 'delicacies' and encouraged us to open a restaurant, which we did on July 15, 1987. We went on to participate in various fairs including the Bite of Seattle, Northwest Folklife Festival, Bumbershoot, the Taste of Tacoma and won ten first place awards. While taking part in the fairs, we began receiving calls from various stores requesting that we package our hummos, baba ghannouj, karamage,falafil, tahini garlic sauce and our simply irresistible Garlic Sauce. And we did! A fellow garlic lover highly recommended that we post a warning that 'it can be addictive'.
