Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe Launches New Handmade Whipped Feta Appetizer
BIRMINGHAM, Ala: Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe, recently named one of Inc. 5000's fastest growing companies, is innovating their menu by adding a crave-worthy appetizer, handmade Whipped Feta.
"The taste of the Mediterranean shines through this feta spread," said Keith Richards, Founder, Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe. "We wanted to create a shareable appetizer that had a light, creamy texture."
Richards recently returned from Greece where he spent over a month developing more menu innovations for Taziki's, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Taziki's menu is known for its original chef-driven recipes prepared daily from more than 100 fresh produce items as well as more than 60 herbs and spices flavoring the food; including freshly grilled meats, original sauces and healthy side dishes, as well as vegetarian and gluten-free options.
"Taziki's has perfected a dip that is made in-house each day and is deliciously different," said Dan Simpson, CEO, Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe. "We pride ourselves in developing new recipes. Our menu items are evolving to meet the requests of our customers."
The availability of the Whipped Feta appetizer is available at all Taziki's locations.
The Grilled Salmon Feast, the Grilled Chicken Basil-Pesto Gyro, the Lamb & Skordalia Gyro and various vegetarian options represent a sampling of Taziki's most popular healthy entrees.
Lamb is prominently found on Taziki's menu and is a staple of the Mediterranean Diet; it's a particular favorite in Greek cuisine. It is an excellent choice of protein and has vital nutrients such as iron, vitamin B12, folate, vitamin K, vitamin D as well as others. Lamb meat provides 45 percent of the daily requirement of zinc, essential for growth, healing and a healthy immune system.
The restaurant's website, tazikiscafe.com, provides descriptions of each entree as well as nutritional information.
