Mediterranean food is often considered the healthiest in the world. It is bursting with flavors from fresh veggies, the meat is used in small quantities for flavoring, and Mediterranean cooks are generous with virgin olive oil. Mooney’s Café offers Lebanese dishes using tried and tested family recipes, local organic ingredients, and only what is available in season.
They make their own sauces and marinades, import tahini (sesame paste) from Lebanon, use more than four gallons of freshly squeezed lemon juice weekly, and are the biggest users of eggplant in Winston Salem. The menu is extensive but dishes are typical Lebanese and Mediterranean and very well prepared. If you are not familiar with Lebanese cuisine, take a sampler of appetizers, which should definitively include humus, babaganouj, and cuscus. Stuffed pitas are fabulous and a whole meal in themselves.
