Kabab delivery from Uncle Moe’s Shawarma Hub

It’s no secret that Middle Eastern food holds a certain appeal to my fam.

Even my youngest couldn’t resist beef kabab, and has been known to demolish several helpings of this dish in one sitting.

With the pandemic still raging outside the safety of our home, the family can’t go out to dine at our usual kabab haunts. Fortunately, Hubby has discovered a resto that can not only cater to our kabab cravings but can supply the side dishes we love so well.

What’s more, its Middle Eastern food offerings are quite affordable and easily accessible.

Cheers to Uncle Moe’s Shawarma Hub, now available for long distance delivery on GrabGood!

First established at Ortigas Home Depot in 2006, Uncle Moe‘s Shawarma Hub focused its offerings towards premium yet affordable Middle Eastern food.

Since then, it has branched out to fifteeb locations across the metro, serving a carefully curated menu stripped down to what its clientele keeps coming back to.

For several weeks now, Hubby would oftentimes order some kababs from Uncle Moe’s via GrabFood for his midnight snack (which he is obligated to share with whoever among us is still awake, hehehe!). The fam grew to love Uncle Moe’s offerings and we started to look forward to it more and more.

At the tail end of a particularly hectic weekend, I decided to heed Hubby’s request and ordered our faves from Uncle Moe’s Shawarma Hub for our Sunday dinner.

This included:

Hummus (Php185). A popular Middle Eastern dip, spread or dish in itself made from cooked chickpeas (garbanzos), tahini, lemon juice and garlic. It is best enjoyed with fresh pita bread.

Moutabal (Php185). A version of the baba ghanoush made with mashed broiled eggplant, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini and various seasonings. It has a yummy savory and smokey flavor which complements many Mediterranean dishes.

Ox Brain (Php195). Made with fried ox brain sprinkled with a bit of citrus juice, it adds a lot of richness to any Mediterranean dish it accompanies.

Given my fam’s huge appetites and our love for kababs, it’s no wonder that we were able to finish off two orders of Beef Kabab Tray, three orders of Ox Brain, two orders of Hummus and an order of Moutabal, all in a single meal!

A gastronomic trip at The Cafe Mediterranean, Rockwell

Mediterranean cuisine is said to be identified with a trinity of basic ingredients: olive, wheat and grape, yielding oil, bread and wine respectively.

Two of these key ingredients came into play during a lunch with my family at The Cafe Mediterranean while we were on our way to a movie screening at the Powerplant Mall. (I was with my hubby and kids so wine was not ordered, hehehe!)

The Cafe Meditteranean prides itself on bringing the “flavors of the sun.” True enough, biting into its tasty offerings brings to mind images of sun-drenched vineyards against a wide azure Mediterranean sky.

Even the restaurant’s premises evoke a similar vibe through the use of brightly colored or strikingly patterned artwork and design accents against whitewashed walls.

For our appetizers, we ordered:

Hummus with Grilled Vegetables (Php300). The classic chick pea and sesame dip from the Middle East accompanied by grilled vegetables. I love scooping it up with a folded piece of pita bread together with a grilled onion or tomato.

Moutabal (Php165). A grilled eggplant and tahini dip, also great with wheat pita bread.

For lunch, Hubby and the kids went for an order each of Grilled Beef Kebab (Php535). Small cubes of grilled beef served with Tabouleh and Labneh (the Lebanese version of cream cheese), together with buttered Basmati rice.

As for me, my choice for lunch was a Grilled Beef Gyro Plate (Php450). Tender slices of well-seasoned grilled beef accompanied by Moutabal, Tzatziki (a creamy combination of cucumber, yoghurt and garlic), Tabouleh (cracked wheat, tomatoes and parsley) and pickled chillies. I loved how the smokey flavors of the beef and eggplant dip were complemented by the cucumber dip and other elements of the dish. Together with buttered Basmati rice, this made for a flavorful and filling meal.

With these combinations of tastes and textures from different Mediterranean cuisines, dining at The Cafe Mediterranean seemed like we went on a gastronomic tour.

Too bad we didn’t have time (or room!) for dessert. I would have loved getting myself some Baklava.

Oh, since both Hubby and I are Zomato Gold members, we each got a 1+1 deal on food which basically rendered one of the beef kebabs and my grilled beef gyro plate as free! What a sweet deal, right?
