Tender beef and lamb doner over Turkish bulgur pilav surrounded by dollops of red cabbage slaw, beet salad, tzatziki sauce, fresh hummus, and Greek yogurt dip. These are the vibrant, healthy components that comprise the beef and lamb bowl at Akivva Grill, a new local eatery that’s dishing out authentic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine.
The beef and lamb bowl is one of their most popular dishes, but they also offer meat-free meals like the signature falafel bowl. It swaps out the animal protein for crispy, round falafel fritters over mixed greens with the same accouterments, with the addition of tabbouleh, couscous, and tahini sauce on the side. You can also try a signature pide filled with spinach and cheese or ground beef, or build your own pita, flatbread wrap, or salad or rice bowl. But the Turkish lahmacun is what really has customers talking. It’s kind of like a Turkish take on pizza, sans the sauce. The thin crust comes topped with minced meat and a medley of authentic herbs and spices. Whatever you do, don’t miss the Turkish baklava or lokma for dessert.
