Mediterra Cafe & Market [5575 Hollister Ave, Goleta] closed on the 31st due to their lease running up. Hope they find a new spot soon! Their lunch specials were always really good!

    My wish would be to have a restaurant here like Petra or Jaffa which are presently located in SLO. My craving for falafels today took me that direction instead of the Santa Barbara crowds, and it was worth the scenic drive. At those places they have the actual vertical meat spit and you can see them slicing off the meat.

    That is really a shame to hear of their closing. If you’re ever down south, in the Los Angeles area, you might want to try Zankou. Its this mind blowing good Lebonese chain all over L.A. All the usual suspects, Shawerma (on a spit), The best garlic rotisserie chicken, Falafel, Hummus etc. They would do a killing here!

    Sad to see. We always enjoyed a lunch there. Hope they announce a reopening.
