THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mediterranean Spirit Restaurant Review

: This ultra casual, inexpensive café in Polk Gulch serves home-cooked, traditional dishes and some of the best hummus in the city. The husband and wife proprietors, who hail from Jerusalem, use only the highest quality ingredients and all of the meat is halal, meaning it is prepared under the strict guidelines of Muslim law. Everything is whipped up fresh, including velvety, peppery lentil soup, and a vegetarian sampler that includes two falafel, two dolmas, baba ghanouj, tabbouleh and hummus. We especially like the big, moist falafel, stuffed into warm, thick pita fresh off the grill and doused with creamy yogurt sauce brightened with Italian parsley and lemon. Lamb shwarma is also exceptional, made with juicy, nicely seasoned lamb ground fresh daily.
