A new place called Sahara Cafe and Hookah Lounge holds its grand opening this Thursday, May 26.

The restaurant and hookah lounge is going in at 1730 E. Prince Road, in the former Guadalajara Grill location. Owner Jamal Lulu—originally from Jordan—said he spent the last eight months getting the place ready, and that he's amped to bring his version of Middle Eastern food to Tucson.

On the food menu: Falafel, chicken shawarma, kabobs, fattoush, stuffed grape leaves, sandwiches, salads and other items. On the hookah menu: Too many flavors to name, but you can smoke stuff that tastes like everything from a can of cola to something called "safari melon dew."

This place also has a large courtyard replete with giant mesquite tree and trickling waterfall. As for entertainment, there will be DJs and bellydancing on weekends.

Hours will be 11 a.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 4 a.m., Friday and Saturday; and noon to 10 p.m., Sunday.

Call 881-5800 for more information.
