I really like Mediterranean meals. The number of textures and taste combos retains me craving for extra. It additionally feels wholesome and contemporary (sans just a few fried gadgets).
On a latest Monday after work, a pal and I made the trek to Tabouleh. Located close to Jacksonville College in Arlington, it was packed upon our 7:15 p.m. arrival. Between individuals retrieving to-go orders, eating with their households, and the 2 of us, there was just one empty desk remaining — it should be good, proper?
Our server was multi-faceted. He performed the function of order taker, money register operator, telephone answerer, drink refiller and to-go order handler. It took some time to get our waters and meals, however once we did it was well worth the delay. Every little thing was contemporary and we realized the restaurant has been working for eight years sturdy. That’s a variety of falafel!
The Mediterranean sampler appetizer ($12.99) shouldn’t be missed. I like that we obtained a preview of Tabouleh’s basic hummus, tabouleh salad, grape leaves, kibbeh and falafel. Straightforward to share, and interesting as a result of assortment of things, this might additionally make for a enjoyable meal choice.
One other strategy to combine it up is ordering the blended pie ($7.99) plate. Straight out of the oven, these 4 pies are heat and comforting: vegan spinach pie, Halloumi cheese pie, Greek spinach pie and Armenian meat pie. Served with cucumbers and thick tzatziki sauce, eat these whereas they’re heat.
My pal opted for the addas soup ($four.99), which she completely loved. A large bowl of blended cut up crimson lentils is blended with greens and topped with contemporary herbs.
My dinner choose was the hen shawarma ($11.99) — a platter of marinated, tender shaved hen atop an plentiful mattress of fluffy yellow basmati rice accompanied by a thick tahini sauce. Served with a easy blended, dressed Greek salad, it simply supplied me lunch leftovers the following day. Permitting the flavors to sit down in a single day additionally made for a tremendous repeat efficiency.
My suggestion is grabbing to-go dessert as you’ll doubtless be too full to get pleasure from it in home.
