A kebab is a meal on a stick, much like a popsicle, corn dog, or steak that got too close to archery practice. Get safely staked cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Mediterranean cuisine plus one falafel or hummus appetizer (up to a $4.99 value) at Mina Restaurant in Mt. Prospect (a $44.99 total value).
The chefs at Mina Restaurant slice, season, and grill a menu of sizzling kebabs and shawarma, crunchy falafel, and other flavorful Mediterranean standards. Grill mavens craft both starters with an eye toward aesthetics and a stomach valve toward easy digestion: choose from the fluffy hummus dip garnished with lemon juice and olive oil (a $4.99 value) or falafel (a $3.99 value), a fiber-rich, five-ball dream team that combats hunger with a hearty chickpea base. Then, pick plentifully portioned entrees such as the sautéed moroccan eggplant ($10.99) or a tender chicken kebab marinated according to a family recipe ($10.99). Main courses play pileup on grilled-vegetable playmates or tuck under covers of rice to tell each other spooky stories of haunted esophagi. Patrons seated in Mina’s spacious, warmly hued dining area can transport themselves to far-off lands by imagining themselves skipping through the painted villas on the walls or playing King of the Mountain atop the pyramids on the menu.
Mina Mediterranean Restaurant
The grill holds court in the kitchen of Mina Mediterranean Restaurant, where flavors from Egypt and Morocco sizzle across a menu of all-halal meat dishes, such as kebabs and tagines, as well as veggie offerings. Morsels of chicken and beef prepared three different ways tumble over a mound of seasoned rice and grilled peppers on the Mina platter ($16.99), described as "a panoramic sampling of the kitchen’s versatility" by the Chicago Sun-Times, which also lauded the "superb" service. Beyond the kitchen, the dining room hosts white-cloaked tables set amid paintings of villagescapes and trompe l'oeil murals that resemble courtyard walls painted with trompe l'oeil murals. A full bar dispatches wine and other nectars as patrons bob to the beats of live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
