This weekend the stars aligned and Erica and I met at Mediterranean Blue for a late lunch. This tiny little place located on the corner of E. Michigan and S. Osceloa packs big flavor! Mediterranean Blue is owned by two siblings with Greek roots (Thessalonikki, Greece, to be exact) who have worked in the Central Florida hospitality industry for many years. Check out the “About Us” section of their website for their great story and read on for the deliciousness that is Mediterranean Blue.
The small space has a deli feel. They have fresh salads behind the deli counter and homemade baklava in to-go boxes. They also had preprepared spanakopita, stuffed grape leaves and moussaka. It’s the perfect way to grab a quick bite to eat without sacrificing freshness or flavor. They also have the perfect set up for those nights where you want take out, but still want healthy options! There are options for everyone— they even have a children’s menu! They have biodegradable take out containers so go ahead…indulge!
The falafel came wrapped in a fluffy pita with a perfectly balanced tzatziki sauce— not too much garlic; not too much dill. Erica ordered chicken souvlaki and we devoured both meals like they might walk away if we didn’t hurry! The baklava was amazing. (Nothing else needs to be said there—just go, eat and be happy!) The portions left me feeling perfectly satisfied!
It’s always a pleasure to find delicious, authentic food at an awesome price. What are your favorite places for fresh, fast (and maybe even Greek)?
P.S. Trust me on the baklava!
