I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Mediterranean Grills

Hidden in a strip mall in Cascade Township, Mediterranean Grills is one of the best restaurants in the greater Grand Rapids area. The restaurant is owned and operated by Ashtin Raad, an incredibly entertaining man who will give you your money worth just in entertainment. Boy, the conversations I have had with that man...

But on to the food. I'm not the kind of guy who normally orders an appetizer, but it's fairly difficult to pass up Raad's amazing hummus. As for the main course, I strongly recommend the Kafta, lamb or beef wrapped with hummus, parsley, tomato, onion, and tahina sauce. Any entree can be made spicy. I definitely recommend this option. Mediterranean Grills has some of the best Mediterranean food I've ever eaten, and it's in such a humble location in West Michigan.
