Sofra Mediterranean Kitchen

After a long day of tennis and beach v-ball, we were ready to refuel. It took us 20 minutes to decide where to go but eventually settled on Sofra Mediterranean Kitchen for dinner. It’s next door to 41 Noodle & Rice Pot House.


Sign outside.


We dropped in on a Sunday evening (around 7:00pm) and it was busy. There’s about a dozen seats inside along with another half dozen outside on the patio. You order at the counter, pay and then the food is brought out to you. Water is self serve up at the front.


Menu is split into pizza, pide, platters (kebab/pide/veggie/shared), salads and wraps. Click here to see a closeup of the menu (1 and 2).

Zaatar manakish ($4.20)
DSC06550I love zaatar and whenever I see it on a menu, I always order it. Sadly, this was the worst rendition I’ve ever encountered.


The bread was hard as a rock and stale. I couldn’t even finish one piece. Not fresh in any way, shape or form. Disgusting.

Lahmacun ($4.95)
DSC06551The lahmacun was (thankfully) better but such a small portion.


The amount of minced meat was minimal but at least the spice mixture was tasty and the parsley fresh.

Lamb kebab platter ($16.95)
DSC06549Comes with basmati rice, salad, hummus, tzatziki and pita bread. You get 8 cubed pieces of lamb; tasty but again on the small side.




Nothing stands out about the sides. For the price, you’d expect more lamb kebab and a better quality salad.


I can’t get over how awful the zaatar manakish was.
