Eating authentically prepared food lets you taste the very essence of a country and draws far fewer angry glares than chewing on its national flag. Avoid fabric breath with today's Groupon to Central Café and Bakery. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Middle-Eastern fare during lunch.
- For $12, you get $24 worth of Middle-Eastern fare during dinner.
The chefs at Central Café and Bakery showcase the flavors of the Middle East with a menu of authentic Lebanese dishes. During dinner, chefs speckle chickens with house spices and grill them whole ($24.99), half ($12.99), or on kebabs interspersed with fresh vegetables ($12.99). Similarly, lamb kebabs pierce meaty morsels that lay atop a bed of rice with a choice of side, such as tabouli or spicy potatoes ($14.99). Sautéed tilapia basks in a Lebanese-spiced white-wine marinade before a frying pan whisks it to a crispy finish ($15.99), and the hospitable staff accents the fresh-baked shawarma pizza with Mediterranean moxie ($12.99 for a 14”). At lunchtime, the kitchen pumps out falafel sandwiches ($4.99) and chicken shawarmas ($5.49), both wrapped in a toasted pita for efficient handling during table-to-table relay races.
