To escape to an exotic destination minus the travel brought me and a friend to Cafe Mediterranean, or Cafe Med as it is popularly known, for lunch. Cafe Med is famous for its kebabs, gyros, hummus and pizzas. I "discovered" this place during the shawarma boom (was that in the early 90's?) when there were kiosks everywhere you look. I was hypnotized by the scents of juicy beef being sliced and diced right before my eyes. In those days, Cafe Med was our payday dinner---a reward after 15 days of hard work.:p
We enjoyed the robust and clear flavors at Cafe Med, unfettered by complicated sauces and heavy dollops of cream and butter. My favorite appetizer as usual was hummus with grilled pita. And my main course was Tunisian fish fillet cream dory, a distinctly spicy dish with black olives, tomato sauce with herbs.
