ABOVE: The lamb kabob platter at Tabouli Grill Mediterranean Cuisine
We headed over to the Tabouli Grill, one of the new restaurants in Bull’s Head after the mayoral debate today.
Tabouli replaced the Margot Café & Wine Bar in the strip mall which will soon also feature Coalhouse Pizza. The setup is pretty similar to Margot, with a casual atmosphere and colorful photography and decor.
Between the two of us, we figured we’d split the lamb kabob platter and also ordered a soup and the spinach and feta pie.
The lamb itself was very good, well seasoned and tender, and the salad was fresh and tasty but the portions fell below our expectations. For an $18 plate –at lunch, in Bull’s Head – I would have expected much more than the two candy bar sized kabobs with one side (in our case soggy-ish, though hand-cut French fries), a Mediterranean salad and half a piece of pita. The meal was preceded by a trio of pickled vegetables.
A similar dish at Layla’s Falafel downtown is not only less expensive but the portions are much larger – a dish you really must split.
