Moona

Moona is an Eastern Mediterranean Mezza in Inman Square.

The word “moona” or “mouneh” in slang comes from the Arabic word mana or ma'oona, meaning "storing." In other words, it’s the English equivalent of the “pantry.” In the past, especially in remote villages in the Arab World, the moona was prepared during the bountiful harvest for consumption during winter's harsh days, providing fundamental nourishment for the daily meal, having transformed perishable produce into food with a long shelf life. Things such as olives, pickles, preserved lemons, cheese, spices, herbs, jams, etc. Moona cherishes the culinary tradition of nourishment, sustenance, and purity in the Arabic and Eastern Mediterranean tradition. Dishes will be served in a shareable format.
