Great Mediterranean/Middle-Eastern inspired dishes. Everything on the menu is vegetarian--we didn't even realize at first, because everything looked and sounded so good. We enjoyed all of the dishes that we tried!

So many times when going to a regular restaurant, you have to find the meatless option. This is a relaxed place in Taos that is just the ticket! Soup was great and hummus sandwich hit the spot!

Who would expect to find a great Middle Eastern restaurant in the middle of Taos? Yet that's what El Gamal is. This is not just your run of the mill hummus and falafel joint. The food is fresh and delicious, and the recipes are creative....More

Yes, it's an "interesting" decor, but the food and service are excellent. If you've had enough New Mexican food this is a great place for felafel and other vegetarian delights. Portions are decent and the prices are right.
