My dh had to do some errands south of the TC, so he went over to the new Med Cruise Cafe’s beautiful restaurant and brought us back Mediterranean Dinner for Two. When he told me he was coming home with the food, I almost began to drool. I have been wishing for a dinner from there for two years. Everything they use is so fresh and tasty, including the yogurt dressing and oil and vinegar Greek style salad. When dh got home, I unpacked the four containers that were very well packed and then I could not wait for anyone before I dug into the green salad with olive, feta cheese and onion, tomato and cucumber, all fresh, really fresh. I always wait for dh, as he gets drinks or whatever, but I could not do it this time. I did tell him I was not waiting, though. As the meal progressed I ate so fast I had to force myself to stop and smell the spices. The kibbe, chicken, lamb, rice and hummus were gone within minutes. It was that good. MMmmm.

MCC has not changed their menu, or cut back on the extras. If anything, the baclava has improved. And the service, even though it was a takeout, was divine, as one of our favorite all time servers, Sami, was there to make sure all was well.
