Take a culinary trip to the Mediterranean in Winter Park. The restaurant is under new ownership and serves delicacies prepared from family recipes. Rollins College students and locals dine in a cozy ambiance amongst yellow walls adorned with framed flower prints while savoring the flavors of beef, chicken or lamb kabobs paired with jasmine rice. The kabobs are served without the skewer when presented to customers sitting at black wrought iron tables. Platters are accompanied with two sides, which include homemade stuffed grape leaves, tabouleh and hummus. Other delicacies include falafel, Khoreshte Ghormeh Sabzi, gyros, pita sandwiches and salads. Don’t forget dessert—the baklava is worth saving room for.
This small Middle Eastern eatery proves that all food should come on a stick.. In Short Wash down a salty and perfectly spiced minced beef kabob with a traditional Persian yogurt soda at this tiny two-table family establishment. Most platters come with a choice of two sides on display- stuffed grape leaves and grilled eggplant topped with chopped nuts are worthy picks. The walls are dotted with gryos posters and an idyllic photo of the Iranian countryside. The food is made fresh, so the service might be slower than you'd expect. But it's worth the wait.
