Chef Yahia Kamal has opened Kansas City area restaurants before. But then he had partners.
His new Chips & Dips is his vision of a great Mediterranean cafe.
It is scheduled for a soft opening at 11 a.m. Saturday at 2506 Holmes. Menu items will include chips and hummus, Greek salad, gyro, grilled chicken shawarma, soups, a sandwich of the day, tabouli and falafel, as well as Turkish coffee.
After the soft opening, hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It will be closed on Sunday.
Kamal, who is known as “Yummy,” also has a wholesale operation called Yummy’s Choice selling gourmet Mediterranean food made from natural ingredients and without preservatives or additives. The products are available at several area groceries.
