Last week, my mom was in town for a short visit. When she arrived we decided to grab a quick lunch.
Taza Mediterranean Restaurant and Market has been on my radar since it opened. My schedule has been so busy that I haven’t been able to go out much to many restaurants for review.
Taza is a Mediterranean Restaurant that specializes in serving dishes with fresh ingredients.
First up were the Beef Samosas. These are similar to an American style meat pie. The samosas are made with dough stuffed with either chicken, beef or potato. The Mediterranean spiced ground beef was filled into a dough then deep fried.
The samosa was flaky and served with Garlic sauce. Instead of the Garlic sauce I ordered the Tzatziki sauce.
I really liked the beef samosas. My only complaint is that I wished it had a little more salt in the beef.
We also tried the Kibbeh. Two came in an order. Kibbeh is a dish made of bulgur wheat, minced onions, and finely ground beef.
The Kibbeh paired nicely with the Tzatziki sauce. I had never tried Kibbeh before, but I would definitely order it again.
My mom ordered the Taza Special. The Taza Special was a Chicken wrap with chicken, lettuce, tomato and some kind of sauce. She just thought it was ok.
The chicken was seasoned well but there wasn’t enough chicken in the wrap. The sauce lacked flavor that is necessary to elevate any good wrap.
I ordered one of the Lunch specials. The Two Skewers Lunch plate. This plate was visually gorgeous. Well plated and styled. Not to mention delicious.
The Beef and Chicken skewers were packed with flavor. The meat mixture was nice with all the mediterranean spices.
Served with rice, herbs and onions, crunchy bite size pieces and spicy rice. Really good. I used some of the Tzatziki sauce on the meat. Really delicious plate of food.
I definitely want to return to try some of their other dishes. I was very impressed with the restaurant. The service was good as well.
A great spot in that area to grab lunch during your lunch break. Or order ahead and take home.
In addition to the menu items that Taza serves, they have a market. The market has Mediterranean items that you use in mediterranean dishes. So customers can prepare their own dishes at home.
