Best Middle Eastern Restaurant in Oakland County: Anita's Kitchen

22651 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-548-0680;

Anita's really hits that sweet spot between deliciousness and healthy eating that we're all striving for. If we could afford it, we might consider eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this family-friendly Middle Eastern spot. Their lentil soup borders on the divine, and the shawarma is lovingly prepared. A little-known fact is that their desserts are really worth saving room for — give the oat bars a try!
