Pasha’s, a new Mediterranean restaurant chain, opened its first two Miami-Dade locations last month.
There are Italian, Chinese and Mexican quick-service restaurant chains, so why not Mediterranean?
That’s the goal behind Pasha’s, which in the last month opened its first two Miami-Dade locations with plans for another before the end of the year.
Ellek has dreamed for years of finding a way to bring healthy and flavorful Mediterranean food to the United States in the form of a quick-service restaurant.
Pasha’s menu offers a collection of Eastern Mediterranean dishes that run the gamut from spinach pie and hummus to kebab platters and wraps with falafel or grilled veggies. The majority of the items are under $5, and everything is less than $10.
”The food from that part of the world has a lot of healthy components that fit well with today’s trends,” said Ellek, who is part Turkish and grew up in the Mediterranean. “We’re trying to do something that has not been done before.”
