With the freezing temps and snowy weather on Saturday night, Average Joe found himself wanting to stay in for dinner. However, Average Jane was in the mood to go out.
So, we compromised and decided to go out to someplace close by, an old neighborhood favorite of ours, The Hidden Café.
The Hidden Café is located in the Delaware Plaza, tucked into the back corner in a “hidden” passageway. The décor is, what I would call, “over-the-top Mediterranean”. But the crowd of people, the candles and the intimate dining room make it a cozy, inviting space. Perfect for a chilly Saturday night.
The menu features a wide array of delicious Mediterranean options. We chose to start with some red wine and the falafel appetizer. The falafel was brought to the table piping hot and perfectly cooked, and the hummus that accompanied it was terribly addicting, although a bit garlicky for my taste.
Our entrees, the seafood capri and the lamb kebab, didn’t disappoint. Delicious seasonings, perfectly cooked meat/seafood, and portions large enough that we had enough for lunch the next day. What more do you need in a meal?
If you’re a fan of Mediterranean food, I would highly recommend stopping in Delaware Plaza to find the Hidden Café. It's a delight every time!
