Best Mediterranean Restaurant: Aladdin Mediterranean Cuisine

It’s hard not to love Aladdin; so popular that they had to rent a separate lot for overflow parking. Walking into the modest, cafeteria style-restaurant in Montrose, and seeing the hot pitas come out of the oven, is enough to make anyone’s mouth water. But the eye candy doesn’t stop at the pita bread.

Large plates of fresh hummus and baba ganoush, not to mention the fresh assortment of salads and the addictive roasted cauliflower, hit the spot every time. Add a protein — a plate of lamb chicken kebabs — a cup of freshly squeezed juice, and throw in a piece of baklava, and you’ve got a meal that is not only affordable and plentiful, but satisfyingly delicious.
