If I’ve talked about my love for Mediterranean food one too many times, I’m sorry.
But not sorry enough to not do it again.
Enter Kid Cashew, the Mediterranean restaurant I mentioned a few posts back. Time and time again, I’ve had GREAT meals at this Dilworth spot.
Earlier this month, I was given the chance to help host a tasting event at KC for local Charlotte bloggers (thanks to KC partner Azam Mehdi). And I happily accepted.
On a Thursday night, we gathered at a long farm table under beautiful chandeliers, and as soon as everyone was seated, the family-style plates began sliding in.
We snacked on the homemade spreads with pita and veggies (my favorite thing on the menu) followed by meatballs, shrimp, and Maryland crab cakes (new menu item). Most of us were sippin’ on Kid Cashew’s signature cocktail, Goat’s Breastmilk. It contains ouzo (Greek liquor), amaretto, honey, lemon, and mint and is served in carafes or by the glass. Don’t be freaked by the name; it’s a must-try.
Next came the MEATS. You can actually see their all-natural chicken roasting on spits through the open kitchen, and we must have been served quite a few of them. The grilled sirloin was also a big hit. My favorite “from the butcher” item was the NC mountain trout. So flaky and flavorful.
Accompanying the wood-fire grilled proteins came several delicious sides. The crowd favorite was definitely the mac-and-five-cheeses, but you can’t sleep on the brussels sprouts or cauliflower mash (another new menu item).
Last but certainly not least: DESSERT. The team brought out plates of baklava and a few gelato sundaes. This is when everyone when a lil’ crazy. Look at this thing – can you blame us???
Huuuuge thank you to Kid Cashew for the wonderful dinner! I know we’ll all be back ASAP.
Side note: Kid Cashew also has awesome brunch and vegan menus, too. Something for everyone!
