( – Salt Lake City, Utah

How I heard of this place: All of my cousins between Brigham City, South Jordan and Provo raved about this humble establishment. When we made it to Salt Lake City, it was our first destination.

Type of cuisine: Mediterranean, Turkish, Greek and American Food (online menu).

Ambiance: Set in a stand-alone building off of E 3300 S in Salt Lake City, the outdoor patio with yellow linen covered tables decorated with pinwheels, spinning in the cool breeze welcomes patrons through its side doors. Inside, fake flowers and vines wrap around wrought iron room partitions, keeping the kitsch decor for the second look.

What I ordered: My husband, without looking at the menu, immediately knew his order: the Kabob-e Kubideh ($10.99) of P

ersian seasoned lean ground beef grilled on sword skewers and served over basmati rice with roasted tomato, raw onion, and pita bread.

My cousin and I each enjoyed the Kabob-e Kubideh & Jujeh ($11.99)  with o

ne ground beef kabob and one chicken breast kabob served over basmati rice with roasted tomato, raw onion and pita bread.

Each of our meals came served with a side salad.

And my husband had to have a glass of the homemade Dugh ($2.99)

What I loved: The jujeh kabob and grilled tomato. Juicy, fresh and succulent.

Why I loved it: Friendly service, decor reminiscent of many of our local restaurant experiences in Turkey and Greece, great food in large quantities and the company of our dear cousins.

Cost: Average ($9 – $14 per lunch entree)
