The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel, gyros, and hummus growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mediterranean fare at Shehadeh Pita Shack in Kenosha, located inside Ben & Jerry's on Green Bay Road.
The Shehadeh Pita Shack serves up a medley of quick Mediterranean eats made with fresh ingredients from secret Shehadeh family recipes. Worker bees will buzz over the weekday lunch special, which silences moaning maws with a choice between the combination plate, a salad, kebab, falafel, gyro, rice, and pita, or a falafel sandwich served alongside hummus and a drink ($5.50).
The Jerusalem salad subsidizes spent veggie vaults with heaps of tomato, cucumber, lettuce, red onion, cracked wheat, and parsley drizzled in olive oil and lemon juice ($3.25+), and the kifta kebab plate, with sides of rice and salad, bails out belly banks in need of beef ($6.75). A variety of warm pita sandwiches ($4–$4.75) pair perfectly with eight-ounce sides of tabouleh, couscous, or hummus ($3.25 each).
Diners can curb postfeast sugary desires with a homemade baklava ($1.75) or a small scoop of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream ($2 with purchase of sandwich or plate), well suited for testing out the structural soundness of DIY pita cones.
