Quick, Convenient And Delish!

4 Posted on 04 / 03 / 2014

So it was almost 9 PM and my boyfriend and I were hungry. We had read about Mediterranean Blue on Happy Cow and decided to give it a try. I had some summer slaw which was light and refreshing and I had the mama's vegetable sandwich which was piping hot and bursting with flavor. My guy had falafel with tahini which he said was very B plus/ A minus good. He ordered the fries with only salt and thought they were a solid B.

Overall pretty decent food. We will go back again.

Pros: Vegan Friendly, Charming, Red Sauce Was Very Flavorful
Cons: No Vegan Desserts

Delicious falafel!

I have been to Mediterranean Blue a few times and I am always satisfied with my experience. The atmosphere is lovely with excellent service. Most importantly, the food is delicious. I always get the falafel with tahini--very yummy. I have also enjoyed the dolmades and baklava. Prices are very reasonable. They have wonderful options for vegetarians and I will continue to return.

Pros: Great food, Good value, Friendly staff

My new neighborhood spot

4 Posted on 04 / 24 / 2012

Despite living down the street from Mediterranean Blue, I had no idea it was there. I found it here on Happy Cow, went for lunch, and just got back from dinner. I was clearly impressed with this little Greek deli. Not only was the food great and reasonably priced, Gail (one of the owners) was so incredibly friendly--and excited about my veganism--that I felt like I was eating in her home.

Lunch consisted of a pick-three-plus-pita deli case special for $5.50. I selected the hummus, falafel, and a collard/bean salad. Intrigued by the idea of Greek seasoned fries, I added a small order. I got out there for $7.50, which, for the amount of food, is a deal. Everything on the plate went well together: I was literally taking a piece of pita, plopping on some collards, a piece of falafel, a french fry or two, and pinching it together like a little sandwich. Gail also gave me a sample of her balsamic beets (homemade balsamic dressing!) and they were delectable.

Dinner was the Mom's Grilled Veggie sandwich: Grilled eggplant, zucchini, and onions served on a warm pita with a generous helping of the homemade marinara sauce. ($6.50) For an additional, 99 cents I added a side of the fries (and I never eat french fries, let alone twice in one day.) I had just finished a 5 mile run; the sandwich was bursting with flavor and--paired with the fries--was just what I needed to reinvigorate myself.

The atmosphere:
Counter service with food-runners. Laid back, surprisingly spacious with indoor and outdoor seating. I'm not really big on the "ambience" factor but I enjoyed the music they were playing and the clean, cozy, well-decorated tables. Also, they have bottles of sriracha on hand. (Which every restaurant needs to catch on to.)

The staff:
As I mentioned, Gail couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. She joked that I'd be back, I could tell by her face that she hadn't expected me to show up so soon. I'm a really relaxed client, I don't expect much from my wait staff and I'd rather just be left alone with my food. All the same, it goes a long way with me when a restaurant owner treats you like a friend. I don't like any of the restaurants near my house (in the SoDo area) except for Chai Thai--which, while very good, is also fairly expensive. I'm glad to have quick, affordable food with an expansive vegan menu so close by.

Pros: Friendliness, Variety of vegan options, Affordability
Cons: Disposable plates, forks, cups, etc.
