Dining Out: Mazza

Nov. 11, 2005 | Link to Dining Out: Mazza

Excerpt: Mazza is reviewed by Stacey Kratz of the Deseret Morning News. Don't worry if you think you've never had Middle Eastern food. With accessible offerings like pita sandwiches and kebabs, Mazza has the novice covered. And don't worry, either, if you think you've tasted it all. With authentic dishes like maghmoor (eggplant, garbanzo and onions baked in a tomato-garlic sauce) or chicken-and-cauliflower kabseh (seasoned chicken, rice and cauliflower cooked in a spiced tomato-and-onion broth and garnished with fried raisins and pine nuts), Mazza can also satisfy the most educated palate.
