Mr B’s Jordanian cuisine opens in La Cumbre Plaza

Reader Brendan let me know that Mr B Restaurant & Café has opened in La Cumbre Plaza at 140 South Hope Avenue, in the former home of Pizza Mizza. “We serve Middle Eastern/American food,” says namesake owner Baha Shehab. “I am originally from Jordan so all the food we cook in here is 100% Jordanian recipe, including the original Shawarma, Hummus, Falafel, and Baba Ganoush. I use the original, genuine recipes.”

Everything is freshly made on a daily basis and meat is marinated the night before. “It is all Halal meat, blood free, which is the healthiest,” adds Shehab. “We choose our ingredients carefully to provide customers with the best ingredients on the market and the healthiest as well.” Shehab, whose father owned a restaurant in Jordan, personally mixes the main spices that are imported from Jordan. He doesn’t buy anything ready.

Mr B offers vegetarian and vegan options, fresh fruit juices, coffees, and the eatery has a bakery onsite with a lot of Middle Eastern sweets including Baklava, Kanafeh, and more. Another offering called Mr B’s Cake will be introduced in the near future.

Mr B, which plans to open a second location at the Pacific View Mall food court in Ventura, is open daily from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Call (805) 866-8080 or visit

    It’s been open for a couple of months. Went in one day to check it out was deserted. A little bit different because they have American fare like hamburgers but they have an unusual twist.

    Went there too. It’s been open for several months and very few if any folks were there, we passed a few times, crickets. Maybe there should be pizza and more styles of hamburgers on the menu?

    randomly stopped in a few weeks ago when the plaza deli was closed. Ordered the chicken shawarma wrap which was delicious. Tough spot but would def go back.

  4. Luna says:

    Went there, they have great options, the food is very clean and delicious! Best customer service ever, very friendly staff! Will definitely go back again

    It’s a tough spot. Too high pricing. Realise it’s SB but the pricing is so high. Maybe they’re catering to tourists or folks down south/LA crowds
