Sahara = Excellent Mediterranean Cuisine

Baba Ghannouj, Hummus, Stuffed Grape Leaves…..
If all of the above start to make your mouth water, then Sahara Mediterranean Grill is worth a visit.

Attached to a Dunkin’ Donuts in a quiet unassuming strip mall, you wouldn’t think there is anything that special from the outside of this place. But step inside, and you’ll feel you’ve been transported to an exotic locale in the Mediterranean. And the staff is super friendly and is good about making recommendations if you aren’t sure about what to order.

My suggestion? Start with the Mezza, a combination of any 5 appetizers for $20. Don’t miss out on the ARAYESS – Pita bread stuffed with a bee/lamb mixture and a blend of seasonings.
If there are only 2 of you, this will be pretty filling, so just split an entree after that. We had the beef skillet which was very tasty, and left us completely stuffed.

My only regret? We were pressed for time and didn’t get to try the Hookah. Hookah is the name of a large water pipe that utilizes water and heat for smoking. It has its origins in India but became more popular in the Middle East.

Shisha is the name of the tobacco mixture that is smoked in the water pipe. Shisha comes in several flavors, with fruit flavors being the most popular. Smoking the hookah is becoming more and more popular all over the world.

One caveat, the website promises belly dancing on Friday and Saturday nights, which didn’t happen on the Saturday evening I visited. But other than that, it’s a great place for a leisurely weekend dinner.
