Last week we decided to try a new-to-us restaurant - Lemoona House. Currently opened 11am-9pm everyday except Tuesday, you can order take out or dine to enjoy "homestyle mediterranean" at Lemoona House. You can also have delivery via door dash ($30 off) or Uber Eats ($15 0ff). Hopefully grubhub will be an option sometime too. Thanks to our favorite credit card, we have free dash pass membership and an annual credit on door dash orders, yay! So we went the Door Dash route. Here's what we tried:
Greek Pizza - $9.75
Feta and mozzarella cheese, sumac marinated onions, gyro or chicken (we chose gyro), fresh tomato and tzaziki on the side.
The Greek Pizza was basically room temp by the time we got it (delivery woes), but was a promising thin crusted pizza.
Dolma - $3.99
Tender grapevine leaves stuffed with rice, onions, herbs, and Turkish spices. Rolled tightly and gently cooked with olive oil and lemon juice. (5 per order)
The dolmas were a good value and tasted good, but I actually prefer the herbs in these ones from a recent misfits or imperfect box, can't remember which at the moment.
Profitorole - $1.99
Cream puffs drenched in a dark chocolate sauce and sprinkled with sweet coconut flakes
These were exactly what I expected them to be and a really affordable price for a sharable, light dessert!
Baklawa - $1.50
Baklawa (aka baklava). Unfortunately these did not show up in our order, which was a bummer. And FYI, you only have 24 hours to report any issue with a door dash order, so don't procrastinate! :)
Lemoona Mix Platter - $15.99
Gyro meat, kibbeh, kofta kebab, chicken shawarma with rice, hummus, taziki sauce and Mediterranean salad, served with pita.
We opted for the Lemoona Mix Platter so we could try a variety from the restaurant at one time. The Gyro meat is excellent in flavor and may just be the way to go! I don't think there was any kibbeh on the platter, the chicken was a bit on the dry side and the mediterranean salad was very simple with a light dressing that was good, but nothing to write home about. Pita and taziki were good and the hummus was excellent.
I'd repeat eat at Lemoona House. This delivery order was definitely not perfect, but I feel pretty confident that an in-person experience would be significantly better. As far as their to-go orders are concerned, I'd love to see a switch away from styrofoam containers...
