A delightful dip into a renewed ocean of flavor
In the heart of downtown Tampa, Kurdi’s is a draw for anyone looking for a unique fine dining experience. And they’ve just opened their doors to show off their new look, their new menu, and their new feel. The half-Jordanian chef, Heveen Kurdi, in collaboration with Chef Fred Behner, whips up a magnificent dinner and caters to any kind of dietary restrictions you could possibly have. No matter who you are, or who you bring with you, everyone will have a perfect taste of the Mediterranean.
A chopped salad of lettuce, red cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, parsley and radishes tossed with a pomegranate vinaigrette. Delicious, and perfect for either a side, or a vegan main dish.
This was a traditional Middle Eastern kebab dinner with one skewer each of beef tenderloin, chicken breast, and kufta served with rice and a speciality arugula salad. Look at it. Just look at it! It’s as much a feast for the eyes as for the tongue!
This wrap came from their lunch menu and it included thinly sliced, marinated chicken breast, tomatoes, pickles, and garlic sauce. It’s seen here served with their delicious French fries (which are even more irresistible when dipped in the garlic sauce), but it also has a salad option.
Moroccan spiced lamb with arugula salad, grilled scallops and basmati rice. Another dish that looks as good as it tastes. Perfectly cooked, spiced, and sauced.
Someone in our group happened to be pescetarian. The staff had not heard of that dietary option before, but it was easily explained and this is what they whipped up. (I made up the name.)
Grilled scallops, shrimp, quinoa, and micro greens in a tomato water sauce. For something that was literally thrown together on the spot, this was amazing. You definitely shouldn’t worry about going to Kurdi’s if you have any kind of special dietary requirements.
Chef Fred Behner, Chef Heveen Kurdi, and Shannon Quinn work hard to give you some of the best tastes that Tampa has to offer.
