Al Quick Stop
Had the pleasure of writing a mag article about Toufic Elsaadi and his elegant Lebanese/Mediterranean food at Al Quick Stop in Houston. Born in the Ain Al-Hilweh Palestinian Refugee camp in Lebanon, Toufic immigrated to Houston and turned his passion for Mediterranean food into a Montrose-neighborhood culinary jewel. Visit Toufic and his son Mohammad Elsaadi and tell them I sent you.

Mohsen Oriental Rug and Repair
Born in Tehran, Mohsen sources carpets from all of Iran's Persian rug-manufacturing regions. Mohsen sold me four antique Persian carpets, and he cleaned and repaired the 9 x 12 foot Persian Mahal in my living room. He has extensive knowledge of the history, design and repair of fine rugs, and is a warm and gracious gentleman. You will enjoy knowing him.
