Sit back and relax in the casual, yet elegant atmosphere of Sofra Mediterranean Grill as you enjoy fresh farm-to-table classics like Falafel, Flaming Saganaki, Shawarma Plates, Kabobs and more.
Sofra is located in the Icon Orlando 360 entertainment complex and is the perfect dining spot before or after your visit to the area attractions.
We were welcomed into the restaurant by a friendly staff and then greeted by our server who reviewed the menu with us. Of course on a warm summer day, we started with cocktails. So refreshing!
Cocktails: The Beirut Cocktail and Mediterranean Sunset
Enjoy drinks by the bar, or sit outside and people watch. Stop in during their daily happy hour for half off specialty cocktails beginning at 4 p.m.
It was hard deciding what to order to eat, everything on the menu sounded so good. Once again, our server offered some suggestions and pointed us in the right direction.
Appetizers: Cold Mezza Trio (Hummus, Babba Gannoush and Grape Leaves) & Flaming Saganaki
If you are a cheese lover like me, you have to get the Flaming Saganaki. Both a delicious and entertaining way to start off the meal. The flames turned some heads as onlookers passed by.
Appetizer: Makanek (Spiced Sausage, sautéed in garlic lemon sauce)
The portion sizes are generous, and most everything comes with homemade pita bread. Yum!
Main Courses: Chicken Kabob & Beef Shawarma Saj
Don’t forget to leave room for dessert. These homemade sweets are the perfect ending to a meal at Sofra.
Desserts: Knafe (cheese pastry soaked in sugary-syrup) & Baklava
Did I mention before how much I love that a majority of the items we ordered came to the table sizzling, even the dessert?
Such an enjoyable experience and one worth trying when you are in Orlando. Next time you walk by, don’t be afraid to step inside and be transported by the favors of the Mediterranean.
