Mediterranean Fish & Grill

Posted by YAR 26 Feb 2010 No Comments

I ended up at Mediterranean Fish & Grill (6550 Old Canton Rd, Ridgeland) when my first choice for lunch in Ridgeland fell through, but I’d been hearing good things about Med Fish (a nickname I just made up) for a while so I was happy to try it.

I wish I had gotten pictures of the inside. It is a large space, mostly a restaurant but also partly a grocery store. Around the edges of the dining area there are shelves of Mediterranean groceries, including dry goods and cheeses and drinks and, my very favorite, an olive bar.  I haven’t sampled from this particular olive bar, but as far as I’m concerned you can’t go too far wrong with an olive bar. More cases at the register sell containers of salads, tabouli, and hummus and several desserts, including baklava and an amazing looking tiramisu.

I got the Shish Kebob platter, which comes with an unnecessary amount of food for $9. The meat itself, though not very photogenic, was very good. I guess it could have been a bit tenderer, but it was far from tough, quite moist, and there was a touch of delicious char on it.

The meals come with three sides, and plenty of each. I liked the hummus, which was fresh and light, and not strongly flavored but definitely not bland; it was also thick and tasty enough that I ate most of it straight, with no vehicle (is that strange?). The dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) were my favorite side—I liked how refreshingly acidic they were. My least favorite was the lentil salad, which I thought was too intensely savory and the flavors not quite balanced. Not shown in the photo are the little container of thick, dill-y tzatziki (which went great with the meat and the grape leaves) and the four small pieces of pita (which were a bit thin and dry but had a good whole wheat taste).

Next time I plan to get some fish, of which the owner is very proud, and I would like to go for dinner. It is BYOB, and the dinner prices look very reasonable–if the amount of food is anything like the lunch portions, it seems like quite a good deal. You can find their hours and menus here.
