The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10–15 years in one of its maximum-security prisons, but the second-best way is to taste its cuisine. Learn about the Mediterranean with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean dinner fare served 3:30 p.m. to close at Christina's Café in Pompano Beach.
Christina's Café satiates rumbling stomachs with a hearty menu populated with classic Greek and Italian dishes. Start up the tummy tambourines with a ringing round of fresh fried calamari ($9) before moving on to a main-course chorus of a gyro platter, topped with sliced ground beef, lamb, tzatziki sauce, salad, rice, and homemade pita bread ($15). Meat teeth find satiety with a beef kebab, forged with marinated filet mignon, peppers, and onions ($18). Diners can also enjoy fresh Italian cuisine without having to slingshot meatballs over the Mediterranean with dishes such as seafood ravioli ($16), chicken marsala ($16), and chicken parmigiana ($16).
