Middle Eastern Magic
Nov. 10, 2018
The secret to the mouth-watering recipes at Nada’s Gourmet Deli are in owner NadaSaco’s mind and quite literally in her touch. Her traditional Mediterranean recipes are made from memory and mixed with her hands – the way she learned from her mother and grandmother southwest of Mozul, Iraq. It doesn’t get more authentic than that, folks! Her chicken shawarma wrap is served on a warmed pita, the chicken expertly seasoned with a spice blend that is exotic enough to transport you far from the gusty November gales of Lake Michigan. The savory taste of the chicken is complimented by the fresh pop of flavor from the accompanying tomatoes, parsley and red onion. Served with house-made garlic paste of course, because what would Mediterranean food be without it? Top that off with Nada’s not-to-be-missed baklava, and you have a meal that is out of this world.
