There was no shortage of food at our latest Elite tasting engagement at the new Medii Kitchen in Anaheim Hills. Though we were promised a five-course "tasting," what was really offered was more like an eight-course feast. Dishes such as olive tapenade, hummus, babaghanush, muhamara, sarmas, kibbeh, cheese boregs, fatoosh salads, chicken tenderloin kebobs and of course, house made baklava came out plate after plate until guests were literally ready to tap out from being stuffed. Shane D claims that the "muhamara was a revelation" and "is SO much better than traditional hummus." Chef Chris gladly shared the process of how it's made, and does so by "blending walnuts, red peppers, olive oil, bread crumbs, and pomegranate molasses."
Andrew K was a fan of the great service. "The owner Chris and his wonderful staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. They were first to introduce themselves, came around each table to see how the guests were doing and took the time to explain in detail how the dishes were prepared. They had such a passion for good food and invited guests to share their thoughts about the dishes. Their proud mantra seems to be serving delicious traditional Mediterranean dishes using the finest ingredients and superior preparation methods."
Everyone left full of food and Yelp swag. Shanon Y was "highly impressed by the presentation and taste of all the dishes. The prices were also extremely affordable and I will definitely be coming back with family and friends in the future," she gushes.
