Take a Trip to Tazé Mediterranean Street Food
ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) – You might think you have to take a trip to the Mediterranean to experience the real thing when it comes to authentic tastes from that area’s cultures, but not so. You have to travel no farther than 626 Washington Avenue. That’s where you’ll find Tazé Mediterranean Street Food, one of the latest restaurants to join the trendy Mercantile Exchange Building downtown.
From the beginning, Owners Justin and Casey Roth, and Chef Matt Borchardt, have focused on house-made Mediterranean delicacies. The word Tazé actually comes from the Turkish word for “fresh,” so it fits perfectly with their philosophy of using the freshest and finest ingredients available. A healthy cuisine is prepared on a daily basis using old-style Mediterranean cooking methods. Some of the most talked about dishes… the Tandoori Chicken with Mango sauce, the Beef/Lamb Giro with Tzatziki sauce, and the delicious Falafel, and Caramelized Onion Hummus and homemade Pita bread.
Some customers have described it as the “Chipotle of Mediterranean food.” There is a build-your-own-entree option and plenty of choices if you’re a vegetarian or vegan. So, for just $8.95, you can begin with a pita bowl filled with your choice of saffron, wheat, white rice, greens and fill it with your choice of meats, dress it up with unique sauces, and add whatever yummy side dish you choose.
Expect a large spacious area for this fast casual, yet cozy restaurant, and customers love the friendly, helpful staff, and great “service with a smile” that they receive. Whether you stop in for lunch, dinner, happy hour, or just late night drinks, Tazé will not disappoint. And if you’re craving the flavors and ingredients of Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Israel, Spain and other cultures around the Mediterranean Sea, you’ve certainly come to the right place.
