Colorful Spices at Taste In Mediterranean Food

When I think Mediterranean, I think spices, creamy and well-seasoned food! We decided to give Taste In Mediterranean Food a try. The restaurant looks like a deli, but like they say, don’t judge a book by its cover. I do have to make one comment, there was a strange sour smell where we sat in the back, so we moved tables due to it.  But other than the weird smell, I have nothing to complain about.

We shared everything family style and started with the Mediterranean Platter Combo appetizer featuring Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Falafel, Dolmas, Tobouli Salad, Moroccan Eggplant Salad, Mediterranean Tomato Cucumber Salad, Feta Cheese and Olives served with Pita Bread.  It was such a wonderful way to start the dinner, we LOVED everything on the platter, the flavors were delightful and the ingredients were fresh!

For the entrees, we shared the Mixed Grilled Kabob Platter offering a combination of Grilled Lamb Cubes, Tawuok (Chicken Tenders) and Kefta (Ground Lamb and Vegetables) served with homemade Garlic Sauce, Hummus Dip, Salad and Rice. We also shared the Charbroiled Cornish Hen Platter served with fresh charbroiled Vegetables, homemade Garlic Sauce, Hummus Dip, Baba Ghanoush, Salad and Rice. I was so impressed, everything on our plates were so flavorful, the meats were tender and the sauces and dips were finger lickin’ good.

Since everything was good, we had to end the meal by sharing the Pistachio Baklava, Namura Honey Cake and Mini Rose. The Namura Honey Cake was a little too sweet for me, but the lightly sweetened Pistachio Baklava and Mini Rose were flaky and the nuts were fresh not stale.

As we were ending our meal, we saw someone order some lamb chops, it smelled so damn good, so we’ll definitely return for it!
