As a resident of the Pearl District in Portland, OR I've been waiting for a great new restaurant to hit the scene. Well, I just found my favorite new place! The Mediterranean Exploration Company
on 13th and Flanders is the perfect mix of drinks, a cool vibe, and of course delicious food!
If you look on Yelp
you will see that most people agree with me on this. We tried the Greek Lamb Chops, the “Usul” Hummus, the Warm Freekeh Salad, as well as Ktzitzot "Israeli Meatballs". I think Ktzitzot "Israeli Meatballs" was my favorite, and you HAVE to try them! All total with 4 drinks and 4 small plates our bill was around $80, so the price is actually fairly reasonable for a date night.
So if you're looking for a great place to try in the Pearl District of Portland, OR try The Mediterranean Exploration Company
. It's worth it!
