meze house dinner review

tonight we ate dinner @ a new mediterranean restaurant in the tower. we had heard about it, and had heard good things, but hadn't been able to get over there yet.

first off, i love how they've transformed the place. the decor inside and out is very nice. the patio area is great, and we ate our there tonight as the weather was great.

i ordered the lamb kabob dinner plate. first, it came with a salad that blew me away. i'm not a big salad guy, and i usually don't like leafy greens, but for some reason i tore this one up. the dressing was a nice balsamic vinaigrette that work well with the kalamata olives and the feta. i even shocked myself by eating the cucumbers, something i rarely do. the lamb was very good, and i enjoyed it with some tahini and hummus on a pita. the pilaf under it all was good, too. i suppose i would've liked more lamb, but after it was all said and done, i was full.

monticore had a falafel that looked good, and was a pretty large portion. she enjoyed it, and i had a bite to taste the chickpea goodness. i thought it was nice, but i'm not sure it's what i would pick when we go back for more. she also ordered a side of fries which were simple little shoe string fries, but the spices they had on them made them scrumptious. seriously, i was full but i kept grabbing more.

it was a very good meal, and the family running the place seemed very nice. we'll definitely go back and try more of the menu.

Did a Saturday lunch there a couple of weekks ago, and was impressed. Simple, but good. I'll go back and try a plate (we just had the sandwiches).

yeah, i want to go back and grab a sandwich. i like schwarma, and the sandwiches were well priced.

the lunch & dinner plates were a little steep, but not terrible.

Wow! That sounds fabulous! We don't have too many Mediterranean places in Columbia. (shocking, i know!)

I'm curious. Where exactly is it in Tower? I see you included the address, but what is that by?

it's across from tower chinese/donuts/burgers and the peach pit, just west of rousseau.
