rumi middle eastern grill.

you may have seen it on my instagram already, but there's a hot new girl in town & her name is rumi middle eastern grill.

i love everything about rumi. here's why : "at rumi, our goal is simple : to bring you delicious, healthy & wholesome food -- that you love. we have all of your mediterranean favorites. with the variety to accommodate any diet & any mood, we're a delicious & flexible place to come for a quick bite." do you see what i see? any diet & any mood. sign me up!!

yes, that means that rumi's menu is clearly marked with what's vegan (plus, what's gluten-free, y'all!). so no need to worry. does that lentil soup have chicken broth? what's that falafel fried in? does the baba have yogurt in it? these are the questions that plague a vegan at a mediterranean place ... but not at rumi.

here's what i had ...

lentil soup & hummus :
amazing lentil soup for winter time chills? check. on point hummus that you wanna snarf every day? check. i've since also had the falafel, which i am very particular about, but am ready to give two very enthusiastic thumbs up to. 

since this first meal (well, it was the second. we ordered it 2 days in a row at work in december. oops.), i've had rumi 3 more times. it's that good. check 'em out.

  1. We started off in the downstairs pub area and then moved to the upper level, many tables were already reserved at event halls for rent but we commandeered some sitting space in front of a fireplace that was just the right size for our group of happy campers.
