Voted Best Local Mediterranean Food from 2008 to 2011 by Boise Weekly readers, Mazzah Mediterranean Grill's chefs assemble zesty ingredients into classic gyros and made-to-order kebabs. A parceled plate of dolma ($3.49 for three; $6.49 for six) delivers grape-leaf scrolls steeped in lemon juice, which unfurl to dispense rice, veggies, and the detailed blueprints of sunken civilizations. Grilled lamb and beef lathered in homemade tzatziki sauce set up camp inside the gyros' pita tent ($4.99), and grilled morsels of vegetables and chicken festoon miniature lances on the chicken kebab's field of basmati rice ($9.49). Guests can sanction a sweet parting with classic, chocolate almond, or mini squares of honeyed baklava ($0.99–$2.29), including varieties prepared with vegan butter.
