Pita provides an efficient delivery system for hummus or falafel but a messy delivery system for U.S. mail. Put pita to its proper use with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a Middle Eastern meal at Viceroy Lounge in Sherman Oaks (up to a $76 total value). The meal includes:
- One appetizer, excluding the cheese plate (up to a $14 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $24 value each)
- Two beers (a $7 value each)
At Viceroy Lounge, diners await plates of Middle Eastern delicacies in a dining room full of comfy couches illuminated by drop lighting and mirrored walls reflecting revelers. A mutabbal appetizer starts meals with a potent blend of roasted eggplant, garlic, and sesame oil, whereas the shrimp cocktail helps crustaceans fit into a lounge setting without being overshadowed by tuxedoed cephalopods. Filet mignon stacks up on skewers in the beef shish kebab entree, and the chicken lulah kebab pairs minced lean chicken and chopped onion. Alternatively, a soltani entree mixes meats with tomato sauce and garlic yogurt, eerily reproducing the sensation of eating gyros in a Moroccan tomato forest. Beers from brands such as Sapporo, Blue Moon, and Stella Artois accentuate the eats.
