Modern, clean restaurant serving Eastern Mediterranean. The large menu has some description of the dishes but, don’t worry, the wait-staff is very eager to help with any questions.
We started with the Norma’s Sampler that consisted of hummus, baba ghanouj, stuffed grape leaves, tabouli, marinated feta and falafel vegetarian. Also came with plenty of soft pita bread for spreading, dipping, etc. This dish is more-than enough for two, making the $17.00 price tag well worth it and a good choice if you are new to Mediterranean. Also had a cup of Vegetable Soup. Made in a tomato broth, the soup had bold flavor and plenty of veggies.
Entree’s, Moussaka (Grecian Shepherds Pie) good sized portion that consisted of eggplant, pureed tomato, ground beef and a bechamel sauce. Good overall flavor, the dish was well-balanced. A super version of Shepherds Pie that was filling and delicious! Kafta Kabob, ground beef, parsley, onions and spices, charbroiled. Nice presentation on top of the rice pilaf, the rice though was the star of the plate. We found the Kafta Kabob dry and with little flavor, possibly cooked too long.
We closed our night with a dessert of Pistachio Baklawa. Serious thought went into this dessert. Handcrafted and made with love is what I got from my taste buds. Topped with a rose water syrup that added just the right amount of sweet. The dessert was two pieces and had a very modest $3 price-tag.
Overall a fantastic experience of food, service and fun! The night closed out with some traditional music and a belly dancer. Pricing, $63.00 before tip, this is a BYOB restaurant.
