Andrew Durgee A fruity take on Tabouleh Salad
Going down The Chick Pea line, you notice that they put their own twist on traditional Mediterranean food. Take the Tabouleh Salad ($3.95 as a side, included with the platter): gluten free and made with organic quinoa, this side is brightened up not just with traditional parsley but fruity addition of pomegranate seeds, granny smith apples and mint. Or the Mediterranean Guacamole ($2.95 as a side, included with the platter) but hold the avocado and add chickpeas and fava beans to this fresh spread full of cilantro, lime and jalapeno.
Foad likes to call his style "old cultural recipes with a modern twist" but he also knows how to do traditional recipes right. Try the with Babaganoush and Tzatziki (both $2.95 as a side or included in the platter) or his made from scratch Falafel, full of fresh herbs and fried until golden and crispy.
