PANINI CAFE OFFERS UP A FAMILY MEAL THAT IS ONE OF THE BEST DINNER DEALS IN DTLA

20170418_200109The other night my husband, a friend and I went to Panini Cafe on 8th and Hope Streets.  If you have not been there before, Panini is a Mediterranean restaurant with 13 locations across Southern California.  The DTLA location has an outside seating area that looks out toward Market Lofts and the Ralph’s supermarket.  The three of us were trying to decided what to order when we noticed the “Family Style Kabobs” advertisement next to the pepper and salt shakers.  For $29.95 you get three skewers of chicken and vegetables, Basmati rice or Bulgar pilaf, plus your choice of salads.  We decided to give it a try.

Wow!  The skewers were served on a massive bed of rice in a huge paella-style pan, plus we were brought two generous portions of salad.  The Mediterranean Greek Salad was made up of mixed greens, onions, Roma tomatoes, cucumbers, Kalamata olives and Feta cheese topped with a Balsamic vinaigrette.  The Romaine Avocado Salad was Romaine lettuce, avocado, cucumber, tomatoes and basil topped with a lime vinaigrette.  This was a lot of food for 30 bucks…. a lot of good food.  There was no way the three of us could eat it all, so we left with a massive doggy bad (AKA: tomorrow’s lunch).

If you have not tried Panini Cafe yet, we suggest you do.  The food is fresh and the chicken is “humanely raised without antibiotics, fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products without cages in low stress environment.”  Panini is a great choice for anyone looking for a healthy option.
