pick of the week: fresh mediterranean style food…fast

A couple of weeks ago a friend and I went for dinner at Zoës Kitchen in Plano at Park and Preston.  I had never been there before but it came with high recommendation so, without knowing the type of food served, we decided to try it.

Zoës Kitchen is a casual restaurant serving Mediterranean-inspired recipes, fast.  Fresh made hummas, pitas, Greek salad and other Mediterranean-inspired dishes fill the menu making it really hard to choose.  We settled on splitting the Steak Roll Ups with sliced tri-tip, swiss, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, yogurt dipping sauce with their olive oil Pasta Salad side and a Zoës classic Greek Salad – tomato, cucumber, peppers, olives, onions, feta over potato salad.

I highly recommend the Steak Roll Ups!  The steak is lean and thinly sliced and the pasta salad  comes with no mayo, just olive oil and it is really light.  I imagine the pasta salad pairs well with much more on the menu but I suggest you try it first with the steak roll ups.

Steak not your thing?  Try the Chicken Roll Ups…I bet they are just as good.  Look for Zoës Kitchen in North Texas, the Houston area and in Austin.
