Determined to become its very own dining scene, the Dallas Farmers Market has been one of the most happening places for restaurant openings in recent months. The Market, formerly known as Shed 2, continues to fill with vendors, and the latest just kicked open their doors last week.

Laili, a “concept kitchen” that focuses on the flavors of The Silk Road, has officially opened its doors. The menu represents a variety of cuisines from the Middle East and Asia – mantoo dumplings from Afghanistan, gozleme flatbread from Turkey – in addition to a variety of daily rotating baked goods.

In addition to Laili’s dine-in options, which include chicken tikka kebabs and a variety of weekly chef’s specials – you can grab baklava, hummus, and other prepared foods to go. On the weekends, you can head to Laili for brunch and dig into fruit-topped challah French toast, washed down with plenty of pomegranate mimosas.

To celebrate their opening, Laili is currently offering special pricing on some of their signature dishes, like $2 mini-kebab tacos and $1 mantoo dumplings. Laili is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekends.

Go forth, and eat more dumplings than should be humanly possible.
