I bet you have one of those days (or nights), too---craving for a specific food or flavor. It's probably the cold weather, or the seemingly endless routine that drove me to imagine Mediterranean flavors all day long. By six in the evening, I was like a woman possessed. Good thing I did not salivate all the way to the elevator!:p
The nearest Mediterranean restaurant to my place of work is Behrouz Persian Cuisine at Metrowalk. It's a shabby place with rickety chairs and worn out tablecloths, with a crew who looked like they would kick you out when you ask for a glass of water. But I was there to get my fix, not to be smiled at and be pampered.
I got warm pita and hummus for appetizer. The hummus was extra creamy and with spiced ground meat, the marriage of flavor was simply delightful. I got a beef stew dish with chickpea paired with basmati rice---I can't remember what it was called, but I remember how tender the meat and how alluring the spices and textures were. And I cleaned up the bowl down to the last tasty morsel.
