Recipes are written in a language all their own, leading amateur cooks to confuse a pinch for a dash or forget that the chef’s word for “water” is “salt.” Trust a native speaker with today’s Groupon to Cristelle’s Restaurant in West Roxbury. Choose between two options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare.
- For $25, you get $50 worth of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare for parties of four or more.<p>
The culinary wizards at Cristelle’s Restaurant use homemade recipes to conjure up entrees from scratch for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Middle Eastern menus. Fuel up for long days of repurposing cubicles into pentacles with morning eats such as the hearty Irish–style breakfast featuring a pair of eggs cooked any style, bangers, bacon, and home fries ($7.50). Or sidestep pasta for the alfredo-chicken-broccoli pizza ($12.29 for a small, $16.79 for a large). Chefs hand-make falafel and forge it into a wrap ($5.79), and a triple-decker cheeseburger club sandwich ($7.99) features three stories of Black Angus beef and a small balcony where a sheltered princess reads forbidden books about mixing condiments. Meanwhile, sides of hummus and salad accompany Middle Eastern dishes such as the lamb shish kebab, which lances hunger with two skewers filled with cubed lamb, onion, and pepper.
