Selam Ethiopian & Eritrean Cuisine5494 Central Florida Parkway, (407) 778-3119
"This place was amazing. New to Ethiopian/Eritrean food, they were accommodating and explained things several times. Their own herbal tea blend beat any of the expensive blends I buy at Megacon lol. We got the giant sharable sampler and it was the best choice." - Dakota C

ShouFi MahFi Mediterranean Grill8379 S. John Young Parkway, (407) 930-1332"I have never had a meal like this. I got the chicken tawook platter and my partner got the beef shawarma. No overcooked chicken here! And the marinade?!? I can usually take or leave beef but my partner's beef was incredible!!  The baba ghanouj was deliciously smokey and the hummus was beautifully fluffy and flavorful. The little yogurt that came with my chicken was so delightfully tangy and a perfect accompaniment. The grape leaves were hands down the best I've ever had, and I have eaten them all over the world." - Sherry B.
