We have always been shwarma fans, even before the Avengers.

So when CousCous, a new Mediterranean grill, opened in our Murray neighborhood, we were eager to give it a try. My husband and I became fast fans, and regular customers, for lots of reasons.

We love that CousCous is NOT a restaurant chain. It is refreshing to know that the menu was created and my dinner prepared by Chef Nick Sham, who is standing right behind the counter, preparing everything fresh with olive oil and original recipes.

Shwarma, a mixture of lamb and beef, takes center stage at CousCous with  the Shwarma Platter, the Shwarma Wrap or the Shwarma salad.

Yes, I love shwarma, but ever since I tried the Seaside Shrimp Salad—with onion, peppers, feta cheese, and house lemon and basil dressing, I have a hard time ordering anything else.  My husband feels that same way about the Salmon Pesto Sandwich on a toasted Ciabatta.

When we take the girls, we always order the homemade Garbonzo Bean Chips with mango salsa and hummus.

The girls also like to order their own Mediterranean pizzas, especially the CousCous Speciality pizza with balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, basil and provolone and mozzarella cheese.

CousCous has a casual, warm atmosphere. We order at the counter and then look for our seat. I love it when there is an open booth. Booth dining  is my favorite way to eat out with my girls. When they were really little, it was a good way to trap them in. Now, it is just fun to sit next to each other.

CousCous does have kids’ meals if you ask and high chairs, but no changing tables. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The price range is between $7.00 and $12.00 per entry, sides between $1.50 and $6.00, and cake pops at the register for $1.50.  There are buy one get one free entry coupons in the Murray City Chamber of Commerce calendar. (Pick one up at Murray City Hall.)

Hours: Monday – Friday 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
