Superb Mediterranean food on ASU campus

Just east of Mill Ave. is excellent Mediterranean food, at the Phoenicia Cafe. With outdoor dining and a bustling atmosphere, you might quickly forget about many of the other restaurants in town that serve the same type of food.

Appetizers here consist of Hummus, Baba, Dolmas, Falafel, Spinach Pie, and Fava Beans, and a Vegetarian appetizer sampler with Tabouli salad.

And speaking of salad, they also serve a Greek Salad, Fattoush Salad, a Garden Salad, ranging in price from $3.20 to $5.49.

If you're looking for a sandwich or a sandwich wrap, you'll find numerous vegetarian selections consisting of the appetizer ingredients, ranging in price from $3.29 to $3.99.

There's only two vegetarian entrees on the menu, a Vegetarian Couscous (served with vegetables and the red sauce) for $7, and a Falafel Deluxe plate (a pita cut in half and stuffed with Falafel, tahini, and Hummus, garnished with salad and House Dressing).

And if that's not enough, they also serve fresh vegetable and fruit juices.

Second location in Gilbert (pictured below):
1150 S Gilbert Rd #104 (between Warner and Ray Rd) 480-503-4976

The vegetarian combo is slightly cheaper than nearby Med Fresh Grill. I like the pita and baba ganoush better too.

I disagree with the other review, being part middle eastern myself I love the food, think its well priced and very authentic.
For vegans I just order a few appetizers, its more than enough for a meal and if you are with someone else you can get the falafel sandwich and share a couple appetizers like the hummus, tabouli, fool modemas or grape leaves.
