Mediterranean Plus in Pensacola, ReVisit

“It’s hard to believe there are so many people in Pensacola who like Middle Eastern food,” my friend whispered, as we waited for our meals to arrive at Mediterranean Plus.

The restaurant was not packed, but it is a large restaurant, and most of the tables were taken.

The Mediterranean appetizer platter arrived and we all dug in, conversation flowing fast and furious. We slowed down when the main course arrived – holy smokes, all that food . . .

At the end of the meal, she said “Wow. I’ll be back here for sure!”

Pensacola has been a surprise – all the ethnic restaurants, and the food is not dumbed down.

  2. Mediterranean diets increase life longevity, something about the amount of olive oil used and the way many of the dishes are cooked 😀

    Middle Eastern diets, on the other hand, produce generation after generation of fatties 😀

    eat up!

  3. LLOOLL, Mrm, I think the fatties in the Middle East are mostly recent, and related to fast food, not Mama’s home cooked machboos or baked Hammour (grouper) and that thin thin bread (raqook?) grandmama made on the curved pan over the fire! I remember all the people used to be fit and trim when we first lived there. Over the years, and with unlimited incomes, and access to KFC and MickyD’s, it all changed. It’s not the Middle East – even the French are getting fat, oooh la la! It’s a world epidemic.

    We only keep olive oil in the house, except for one bottle of canola that I use for baking, when I don’t want the olive taste. I tell myself it makes me healthier, but I also wish it made me slimmer!
