Foodie Explorer: Sarah’s Mediterranean Grill

By Megan Giller
February 3, 2014

Austinites love to explore, almost as much as they love to eat. This is our attempt to combine the two by uncovering some under-the-radar ethnic eateries and places that you wouldn’t otherwise know existed. Today’s destination: Sarah’s Mediterranean Grill and Market in Allandale (5222 Burnet Rd.; 512-419-7605)

Go for: an authentic Mediterranean cafe and market

You’ll probably spend: About $10 on food, $20 on groceries

You’ll be comfortable in: Jeans and a T-shirt, the way Austin intended

Don’t be intimidated by: Foreign labels on packaged products; they’re all delicious (be sure to try all the candies and sweets)

Must-try dishes: Try hummus and tzatziki with pita bread to start, spinach pie or a beef shawarma wrap. Or go for one of the plates (we like the chicken kebab) with hummus, Mediterranean rice, a small house salad and pita bread. Don’t skip the baklava for dessert.

Know before you go: The cafe has an eat-in area, but it feels more like a to-go establishment

Side note: It's one of the only places in town to serve halal meat
