It doesn’t take a geni-us to know that Aladdin CafĂ© at 938 Embarcadero del Norte in Isla Vista has closed. UCSB students report that the eatery has been closed since New Years. I stopped by during business hours the other day and lights were on but nobody’s home. The eatery opened in October 2014. Thanks to reader Brendan for the tip.

    I am so glad they closed. They had a prime location and I was afraid they would survive based on that location. I thought their food was of poor quality. The meat was full of fat and gristle. There was a much better Middle East restaurant nearby, but it was not in a visible location so it was forced to close.

    My hope is for a good Middle East restaurant to take the place of this one.
