You gotta try Char
I want some Kebab in anyway
Maybe they make it real
Maybe together we can Yelp it here
Falafel is better
Starting with cocktails got so much to choose
Bo Bites I’ll starting singing
Me, myself I got reviews to prove
It was a late night bite with a friend of mines and wasn’t sure what to expect of this place. To be honest, I didn’t know it was a Mediterranean restaurant, but not to say I was disappointed. I started with a drink and then shot for the food menu right away.
My friend order their Falafel Bites while I went for their Chicken Kebab. My friend wanted to share, but she ended up eating it all haha! Needless to say, I was a good friend and offered her some of mines — wink! The Chicken Kebab was atop a bed of Basmati rice and came with a trio salad and Tzatziki. The trio salad was light and sweet and had a perfect blend of salt and pepper. The rice was light and paired well with the chicken which was slightly dry, but dipping it in the Tzatziki sauce helped add some moisture. The chicken had a bit of a char to it; giving it a burnt taste, but it was to be expected since it was served on a skewer.
Overall, I was pretty impressed with Char and their food. The service was good and I always appreciate good seasoning and just the right amount in my books. The ambiance is upscale, but in these parts they don’t mind shorts and t-shirts. – Enjoy!
