Hopefully you already saw my post raving about the still newish Mazadar Mediterranean Kitchen. Well, let’s just say that they remain a must visit. We probably go there every two weeks or so. I wanted to update locals on some other items we’ve tried.
The falafel is really good. Crispy on the outside, tender and not dried out inside. I’m not convinced it’s housemade, but it’s good.
I also tried the Mazburger. Not going to lie, I felt a bit funny getting a burger at a spot like this, but I just didn’t feel like Mary*. Well, I’m happy to report that this is not an incongruous choice. While the menu description reads like a standard get-one-anywhere burger, that is NOT the case. Everything that cradles the burger patty is fairly standard – melty American cheese, shredded lettuce, ketchup, mayo, delicious pickles, sesame seed bun…but, oh, that patty. This hand-formed patty is not just grass fed beef, it’s richly seasoned and seems to be the same meat you would get if you ordered a kofta skewer, just in patty form as a burger. Delicious. The fries that come with it as a “meal” are standard crispy hospitality battered fries, but cooked perfectly.
Mazadar is nailing it and has expanded their menu. Please check them out. Oh, and service is efficient and friendly, too!
