Discover the Richness of Mediterranean Cuisine
Mediterranean cuisine is mainly based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and olive oil, with a moderate intake of fish and poultry, and a low intake of red meat and processed foods.
The Mediterranean region includes a wide variety of cultures, such as Greek, Italian, French, Spanish, Lebanese, Israeli, Turkish, and Egyptian. So, their cuisines include very different dishes with similar ingredients, for example:
The hallmarks of Greek cuisine are olive oil, fresh herbs, and tangy feta cheese; and it also includes vegetables, grains, fish and meat, pasta, and yogurt.
It uses seeds and nuts in different dishes as well as in desserts, and flavorings such as cumin, oregano, garlic, onion, and mint.
Filo pastry, with its origin in Greece, is used to make pastries such as spanakopita (spinach and cheese pie).
Lebanese cuisine mainly includes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and seafood. Lamb, goat, and poultry are quite common, although the latter is eaten more often than red meat.
Garlic, chickpeas, parsley, lemon juice, and, of course, olive oil are very used to prepare their dishes, which are often eaten with flatbread like pita.
Some of the most popular Lebanese dishes are hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, falafel and shawarma.
Italian cuisine, one of the most famous worldwide, uses few ingredients prioritizing their quality. It mainly includes pasta, fish, fruits, vegetables, and cheese.
Pizza and pasta are tremendously popular internationally, as well as risotto and lasagna.
Desserts are usually made with sweet cheeses like mascarpone and ricotta, pistachio, almonds, cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, and citrus fruits.
Some of the top choices among Italian desserts are gelato and tiramisù.
Spanish cuisine includes fish and seafood, lamb, chicken, and pork. It uses oregano, rosemary, parsley, thyme, paprika, saffron, and garlic, as well as olive oil to prepare many vegetable sauces.
Like Italian cuisine, it emphasizes on quality ingredients and simple cooking techniques, searching for a delicate balance between savory and tangy flavors.
Some popular Spanish dishes include paella, tapas, and gazpacho.
At our Mediterranean restaurant, we take pride in offering you an authentic culinary experience completely based on this incredibly delectable cuisine, such as shawarma, gyro, kabob, falafel portobello mushrooms, baba, and hummus.
