The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel, tabouleh, and hummus growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean fare and drinks at Eden Garden Bar & Grill, located in Pasadena.
Eden Garden Bar & Grill sprinkles blooming hunger pangs with a host of traditional Mediterranean dishes served in a warm, intimate setting. Guests lamentably unable to stick round pegs into square holes can comfortably stick a soft pita into the hummus ($7) or sink recently sharpened incisors into four pieces of falafel, which come flanked by sesame seed sauce ($8). The chicken shawarma, served with hummus and salad ($13), stokes the fires of the poultry partial, and the crispy prawns represent the underwater contingent by enlisting seaweed salad as its running mate ($18).
Unlike choreography of dying battery-powered toys, a legion of belly dancers shakes artfully in time to the exotic tunes of the onsite DJ. Bucolic bread-breakers can take their fare into the outdoor patio, where guests can puff smoke halos with a hookah pipe.
