FETA: Authentic Mediterranean Cuisine in the Heart of the City

Vast lands of rich culture and a vibrant history. Images of princes, enchantresses, tradesmen, and other such diverse peoples. A cultural food fare filled with a myriad of spices, iridescent colors, and regal ingredients. These are just some of the imagery conjured up when the Mediterranean region comes to mind.

When in Manila, experience the best of Mediterranean cuisine only at FETA.

Feta Mediterranean Cuisine

 

I am quite clueless about Mediterranean cuisine. In fact, I only know one thing about Mediterranean cuisine: they use a whole array of spices. This being said, I tend to shy away (or totally nix) the notion of eating spicy food.

Lo and behold, I found out it isn’t all about spicy fare, after all. Their seasonings lend flare and zesty flavor to Mediterranean meat and vegetables dishes. Here are some of the offerings we had at Feta Mediterranean.

 

Feta Mediterranean Cuisine

Yogurt Shake | Php 90

 

These were made from yogurt that Feta produces in-house, ensuring both quality and authenticity. The sweet yogurt shake makes for a nice drink, though it might be a bit too overpowering for some. The salty one has a very unique taste. It’s very refreshing since it’s not heavily salted, and it makes for a nice palate cleanser in-between meals. You can request for either the salty or the sweet variant of their yogurt shake.

 Chicken Sis Kebab | Php 290

 

The chicken sis kebab is a bit bland, but it goes well with the dipping sauces included with the dish. The vegetables served with the kebab complements the flavors nicely, though. They taste very fresh and don’t feel too heavy, either.

Beef Sis Kebab | Php 395

 

The beef sis kebab is also good. The beef is flavored enough for the spices and herbs to come out, but not too much as to overpower the dish. Like the chicken sis kebab, the beef sis kebabs also goes well with the included dipping sauces, and the vegetables likewise complement the dish.

Iskander | Php 350

 

Similar to our local caldereta, beef with a mildly spicy sauce. The meat is cooked perfectly. It isn’t too dry and is so soft, you don’t need to use a knife.

 Turkish Kofte | Php 120

 

These grilled meatballs are made with ground beef and are spiced similarly to the kebabs. These are perfectly cooked, not overdone and very delicious. Like the kebabs, these are also served with a tomato and tahini sauce.

 Feta Cheese with Olives

 

The feta cheese and olives were complimentary served with our meal. We ate them with the kebabs and made our own variations of wraps with the meats at our disposal.

Lahmacun (Turkish Pizza) | Php 120

 

Known as the predecessor of pizza, the lahmacun is basically pita bread with tomato sauce and ground beef. The lahmacun is served with vegetables and comes in a mild or spicy version. You can add the vegetables as toppings to the lahmacun and roll it up to eat it. Look ma, all hands!

 

Feta Mediterranean Cuisine

 Baklava | Php 180

 

A traditional dessert made with more than 40 layers of filo pastry that is also made in-house. The pistachio filling is sweet, but not too saccharine, and it makes for a nice ending to a wonderful meal.

 Complimentary Turkish Tea with Muscovado sugar

Although you get really good value for your money as some serving sizes are good for sharing for 2-3 people, it would do you well to ask your waiter how big the servings are first, so you don’t over-order. Honestly, we were quite taken aback by the serving sizes of some of the dishes.
