What You'll Get
Greek noshes, like slip 'n' slides, are a hit at parties and rely heavily on olive oil for optimal results. Slide into a mélange of Mediterranean munchies with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of gyros and other Mediterranean cuisine and drinks at Jordan Valley Cafe on South Palafox Street.
The gregarious gyro generators at Jordan Valley Cafe craft a menu of freshly made authentic Jordanian-style Mediterranean fare. Two pita slices and two sides from the bar prop up delicious but structurally unsound platters, such as the legume-laden falafel ($6.99), the grape leaves ($6.99), and the macarona pasta ($6.99)—a Greek spin on spaghetti. Quell carnivorous cravings with a meat-mottled gyro sandwich (choose beef and lamb or chicken) with tangy tahini or yogurt sauce ($6.29) and Western-born burgers and fries for feasters on beef-patty-only diets ($7.99).
Savory sides such as cheese pie ($2.25 for two pies) and hummus with pita bread ($3.99) shadow greek salads dressed in olive oil and lemon juice ($3.99 for a small, $5.99 for a large). Finish a fresh-air feast with a serving of cashew fingers ($1.50 for two)—three digits shy of a fully functioning pastry paw—or a cup of turkish coffee ($2.99) in the eatery's outdoor seating section.
