For starters you might want to check out their version of hummus. It is creamy but not too thick and goes well with fresh pita.
Tabbouleh is another choice along with Stephanokopita, that hard-to-resist Greek spinach pie that they put their own spin on. Here you get two pieces for $4.00. A couple of salads continue the healthy theme.
You will notice a lengthy pita wrap menu. In fact, there are so many choices to ponder it may take some time to order. The Filet Mignon Steak Kabab Wrap ($9.50) includes tomatoes, red onions and hummus.
By the way with most picks the meat bursts out of the seams and the well-placed sauces are also generously applied. One of the more unusual wraps is the Greek Grilled Cheese ($8.00) with feta, mozzarella, red pepper, mint flakes and garlic sauce with a kiss of olive oil. There is also a veggie version with grilled mushrooms, tomatoes, red onions, zucchini and bell peppers topped with hummus.
Plates are another way to go and most are priced around $15.00 with plenty to spare if you want some lunch for tomorrow. The Chicken Kebab Plate includes two marinated skewers of breast. Beef is the highlight of the Shawerma entrée that includes meat sliced from a vertical spit with a choice of tahini or tzatziki sauce.
Included with the plates is hummus, Israeli salad, rice and two pieces of pita bread. If you want to go low-carb swap out the rice and pita for a garden salad and strips of Romaine lettuce.
Fans of flame-grilled chicken will want to order one of their choices with quarter or whole versions. Garlic sauce and pita are included
Rice bowls are another option with many of the meat choices available including an enticing beef and lamb gyro edition. Salad is included.
Some folks like fries for a main course and you can certainly find that here with many choices to consider. Loaded Beef and Lamb Gyro Fries ($12.00) are delivered with secret fry sauce along with feta and chicken versions.
What would delicious Mediterranean food be without dessert, especially baklava? Bite size, dozen or two dozen pieces are ready to order. But that isn’t all as there is also crème brulee which is definitely a surprise in a casual place as this. Grilled Nutella Pita is another meal-ending sweet.
For the kids, healthy options include a grilled cheese pita or gyro bowl.
If you are planning a party, they have an extensive catering menu with three options that can feed up to 50.
