Every once in a while, a new restaurant pops onto our radars here at Seamless HQ and a buzz starts to hum around the office. A few weeks ago, the buzz of 1 Bite Mediterranean was infectious and I had to give in. I love Mediterranean food, so I knew this would be a meal I could thoroughly enjoy. Must check it out!
Just by looking at the 1 Bite menu, I could understand why the office was buzzing. They offer a 2-course Pre-Fix Lunch special! Oh hello! I decided to keep the order a classic, so I got an order of Chicken Shish Kebab and a side order of Hummus. Just right there, that’s a pretty filling meal. I also added an extra yoghurt sauce and some extra bread. But I knew I wanted to try more… So I ordered their special dessert of the day – a Chocolate Oreo Pudding. So how was this?
The multi-course lunch came quickly and was delivered fully in tact. Each section of the meal had it’s own plastic compartment, which made it super easy to deliver and then consume. Perfect.
I first dug into the bread and hummus. The consistency of the hummus was perfect – smooth but with a little bite of chickpea. The accompanying bread was super chewy and a great scooper for the hummus. I thought the hummus could have been a little saltier, but I tend to be a salt-fiend.
The “main course” of chicken shish was really nice! The dish is made of char-grilled marinated cubes of chicken breast, served with whole wheat bulgur rice, and grilled veggies. The chicken was seasoned well and had a little bit of spice with it. Only wish there were a few more grilled veggies! The extra yoghurt sauce that I added was a really good call on my part (if I may say so myself) as it moistened the chicken a little and lent a nice element of coolness.
And then came dessert. And boy was I in for a treat! My expectations for a dessert from a Mediterranean restaurant weren’t very high. But when I scooped into that pudding, I was instantly happy. The pudding was super chocolatey and had some nice chunks of oreo cookie. Drizzled with some raspberry sauce and fresh raspberries, this little plastic cup was pure joy.
