My friend and I, who both enjoy eating Middle Eastern and Greek food, are longtime patrons of International Delights (ID) and have recently visited The Sheba Grill and Santorini’s. My friend ordered the Chicken Shawarma (CS) plate at all three restaurants. I had the CS sandwich at Sheba Grill, a similar sandwich at Santorini’s, and both Gyro and Felafel sandwiches as well as a Mezza plate (Hummus, Tabouli, Babaghanoudj, and Dolma) at ID. First let’s eliminate Santorini’s. Both of us felt the food was better at the other two restaurants. And the atmosphere there felt ‘sterile’ to us. I would also rule out Tiffany’s Greek restaurant. I ate there once long ago and came away with the impression: ‘quantity over quality’. I read recently that the owners of Tiffany’s are retiring and selling the business. Let’s see what happens when new owners take over.
We liked the food at both Sheba’s and ID, but preferred ID for a number of reasons. The chicken was tasty at both places. Sheba’s plate came with lots of tasty rice (we tried both types that they serve), but didn’t include hummus, as does ID’s CS plate. And the plate’s salad was better at ID. Additionally, Sheba’s CS plate was several dollars more expensive than ID’s, and the atmosphere at ID is lots better - no comparison.
If you’re in El Paso, Sinbad’s restaurant on Mesa has great Middle Eastern food. Someone recommended I try their Gyro over rice (as opposed to wrapped in pita bread). I did and it was delicious. I’ve also tried one of their combination plates, which was excellent.
