The Village Mediterranean Restaurant & Pastries in Pembroke Pines

by jem614

Want to indulge in a little “Middle East” decadence?  Check out The Village in Pembroke Pines for some delectable baklava and spicy Mediterranean fair.

The great benefit to Middle Eastern or “Mediterranean” food is that there are so many vegetarian options.  I love falafel sandwiches but have been going without because the place I normally get them from  makes them a little too greasy or maybe the oil they cook them in just doesn’t agree with me (I don’t really expect Gyroville to be perfect though, it is a fast food restaurant chain).  The Village makes them just perfect: fresh crunchy veggies, ungreasy falafel balls and tzatziki sauce.  My husband was in love with their b**f schwarma (for those of you who have meat-eating spouses or friends).

They also have opened up a new restaurant on University Drive that has a mini-store inside.  I will be going soon so we can make some fava bean and baba ghanouj dishes.

And…. of course, you can’t leave the restaurant without buying one or TEN baklava’s.  I literally could eat a hundred of them but unfortunately with Gestational Diabetes, I’m going to have to wait on that.  One little triangle of the chocolate baklava satisfied the craving for now!

Please go out to visit them and keep them in business because they are a little piece of food heaven!
