Seattle/bellevue: Meditteranean Kitchen

Recommended Posts

I ate at this place once, years ago, before going Gluten-free Casein-free and loved it. (Huge portions, and the food can be rich/heavy, but is very tasty, and you take home leftovers to have food for three days!)

We went last night with a large group, and I expected that I wouldn't be able to have anything, but the manager was serving us, and when he brought out the starter soup for everyone, I went to say that I wouldn't have any because I couldn't have gluten, and he said there wasn't any in there - but with a manner that said he knew what he was talking about (and added "there's no flour in here"). I talked to him briefly, over the other people, about the menu items, and he said "well, you couldn't have the tabouli because of the bulgar, or the couscous, but pretty much everything else is fine" and confirmed that it was dairy free as well. (obviously, the pita bread is out, and the breaded items, but it was a straightforward menu read.)

anyway - great meditteranean, greek, middle eastern food and they have three locations.

Waving to Tiffany from Bellevue

I, too, have eaten at Mediterranean Kitchen in both Seattle and Bellevue, probably for 20+ years. I've been once since going gluten free and I was worried, but the Bellevue staff was great and a I had a great meal, plus 2 leftover meals, since they give you so MUCH!.

Two other good Bellevue restaurants are Moghul Palace in Bellevue (I love their mussels and was happy they are gluten free!) and McCormicks at Bellevue Place. At Moghul Palance and Mediterranean Kitchen I could actually eat an entree instead of ordering plain fish or meat with veggies on the side. I was very happy.

Yum! Where in Seattle are they? I live in the South End and have never even heard of them. My BIL's are both from the Middle East and I bet our whole extended family would love going there.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

The Seattle restaurant is just north of the Seattle Center on Roy. The Bellevue restaurant is just south of Bellevue Square.
