Before Gordon's Arrival

Fay has experience owning a food truck, but Brenda does not feel like she is being treated like an equal. They have several relatives working, but they constantly fight. Fay and Brenda believe the other one should leave the restaurant, since the former thinks she does everything, but the latter thinks that Fay has too much control.

First Impressions


First Meal

Food Ordered

Dip sampler, fava beans, Kibbi rolls and a Zayna combo.

Impressions of the Food

Gordon finds the dips to be too oily, the beans look like somebody vomited on them, the kibbi rolls are frozen and the Zayna combo is dry and flavorless.

First Dinner Service




Remainder of the Visit

After an argument, Gordon puts Fay into a surveillance van. After seeing that everything went well, she tells everybody, even Brenda that she was proud of everyone.

After Gordon finds out that barely anybody knows about the restaurant, he starts advertising it.

After Gordon's Departure

Fay went back to the way she used to be, which made Vanessa and Amel leave, but Brenda still asserted some leadership. Reviews are mainly positive, but some still said there was bad service. The restaurant has a new owner as of September 2015, Ray Younis.
