Café’s Low Calorie, “Made From Scratch” Menu Raises the Bar for O.C. Eats

Family-owned restaurants that offer top quality food, superb customer service, and reasonable prices thrive in any given community, and Rancho Santa Margarita’s Neighborhood Grill restaurant succeeds in all three categories.

“A great choice for quality, taste and health,” is their billing and a promise kept for this Greek style eatery, which offers fresh meals made to order. Kabobs are the house specialty: one skewer of marinated tender meat (chicken, filet mignon, salmon, or beef) combined with one skewer of tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, and onions. All are expertly prepared over an open flame and served with a garden salad, rice, and warm pita bread ($7.95 to 13.95).

Calorie counters and low carb fans can choose half rice and half salad or all salad, and sandwiches can be served on whole wheat or pita bread. Don’t care about calories? Go for the cheesecake or home made baklava for dessert.

Helpful Hints:
• All meals are made to order, so take advantage of calling or faxing in your order.
• Seniors receive 10 percent off meals ordered after 2 p.m.
• Kids meals are available ($3.95 to $6.95).

Hassan Mowlai, proprietor of the Neighborhood Grill, has supported the community since the doors opened in 2001. “We provide gift certificates in silent auctions for non-profit organizations,” offers Mowlai, “place ads to support a publication for school events, and donate complimentary or discounted meals in local schools, churches, or community events.”

Rancho Santa Margarita’s planned “Urban Village” continues to offer the best of two worlds: all of the elements and advantages of a small city plus the quality of life of a small village.

Michael’s Meal Deal: Take advantage of one of the eight daily lunch specials ($6.95 to $11.95) available 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Choose from four open flame entrees of chicken, steak, fish or gyro (beef and lamb) served with hummus or cucumber yogurt; or choose from four charbroiled sandwiches: veggie, chicken, steak or gyro and a garden salad or french fries. All options include a 22 ounce drink. Two dinner specials caught my eye: colossal black tiger shrimp kabob ($14.95) and top round lamb kabob ($12.95). Dine in and receive complimentary half- or full-size appetizers when your bill is more than $30 or $50 respectively, but only available for dinner time. Tell ‘em Michael from New-n-Views sent you and get the same appetizer deal for lunch time, too.
