Craving Mediterranean

I'm craving mediterranean food! I live in the Valley but definitely travel outside my 5 mile radius - would love to get some recommendations... P.S. and please don't say the Great Greek... not a big fan

  1. Well, you could go to Alexis Greek in Northridge, Alcazar on Ventura in Encino for Persian, Carousel, Carnival, or that Firehouse place.

    You could pick up some yummy mediterranian goodies at the Italian Middle Eastern Deli on Riverside, or Valley Hye Armenian Market on Burbank.

        Yes. Marouch is a favorite. Also do a search on the board for Skaf's.

      2. love shirin in woodland hills for kabobs

        1. Skaf's Lebanese Grill on Laurel Canyon and Oxnard in North Hollywood, next to the 7-Eleven. Best. Hummus. EVAR. Get anything on the specials menu.
