The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious gyro, hummus, and pizza growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mediterranean eats at Aladdin Restaurant & Cafe in Orono.
Aladdin's Restaurant & Cafe offers fresh-made and eclectic menu selections of Mediterranean-inspired fare in a stylish café setting. Start a day of sailing through jet streams, land water, and meat cravings off right with the sustentative gyro breakfast, a pita piled with eggs, gyro, cheese, and veggies ($5.49), or hop across nearby Lake Minnetonka for a hearty Greek turkey melt panini, served with a side of savory cucumber sauce ($6.49). Aladdin also offers salads ($4.49+) and 10" pizzas ($8.99+), along with a full menu of coffee bar creations, such as the caramel macchiato ($2.80 for a small, $3.40 for a large), a steaming sweet treat strong enough to revive even the most exhausted former mermaid.
Aladdin's bright, art-deco décor combined with warm, lake-house-inspired wood accents make this villa of victuals an inviting pre- or post-jet skiing dining destination for a dueling duo of pond skimmers or a large group of lost, befuddled lake monsters. Aladdin also offers an outdoor patio, so the vitamin-D deficient can soak up their daily serving of sun while meeting their Mediterranean food requirements simultaneously.
