FreshMed Mediterranean Cuisine
When Kira O’Donnell of Sacramento Magazine visited FreshMed Mediterranean Cuisine, she found something unexpected: nachos. Of course, these nachos, which O’Donnell highly recommends, aren’t the type smothered in sour cream. In fact, they’re not even made with tortillas. FreshMed makes its nachos with fried pita bread and a mound of chicken shawarma, chopped parsley, and feta cheese⎯a testament to the restaurant’s authentic Afghan and Mediterranean ingredients. The dish is a good representation of the remainder of FreshMed’s menu, which includes such items as marinated lamb kebabs, falafel wrapped in soft pita, and Mediterranean salads tossed with feta cheese, tomatoes, and plenty of dried mint. FreshMed also offers catering for events, such as surprise parties where everyone jumps out of a horse.
