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. Savor essential Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 at Elham Restaurant in New Castle.
An oasis of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors, Elham Restaurant serves up kebabs, pitas, salads, and a menu of fresh-cooked regional savories. The authentic shish kebab's lean lamb marinates, before roasting, on a rod while meditating about the meaning of tastiness ($7.25 small, $13.50 large). A well-stocked salad menu tosses regional flavors in a mix of green, including the gyro salad—a choice of meat atop lettuce, tomato, and fries ($7.65). To make the yakni, chefs stew ground beef in tomato sauce, then dish it up atop rice with a coterie of green beans ($6.50). Kibbi, kufta, and other Arab delights are arrayed on platters or sandwiched into morsels packaged to deliver mouthfuls of flavor.
Elham Restaurant treats diners to the staples of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. Lamb gyros stuff thinly sliced lamb and fresh veggies into pita bread, and falafel sandwiches drip with tahini sauce. The eatery also offers a full-service bar.
