Medina Oven & Bar

Posted by    |    July 10th, 2012 at 1:42 pm

After hearing a friend rave about the magic of Medina, I decided to give the Moroccan-Mediterranean restaurant a try.  Being a Southern girl at heart, I usually stick to Southern comforts or Tex-Mex. A Chicago-style gyro is about as adventurous as it gets. But I’m all about broadening my horizons, so I booked a reservation on OpenTable: Dallas Restaurants, grabbed some of my more adventurous girlfriends and had my first go at Moroccan cuisine.

The location was killer (right next to American Airlines) and the candlelit interior was perfect. The iron lanterns and elegant textiles created a warm and elegant atmosphere. I kept waiting for Aladdin to pop out from the kitchen and take me on a magic carpet ride.

There are very few places that taste just as good at two in the afternoon as they do at 2AM, except maybe Taco Bell. But step up your game from your fast food favorite, and you’ll find yourself at Buzzbrews, the little pop art-covered haven of fresh food at frugal prices.

Focused mainly on breakfast, the menu has everything from pancakes to grinders. The menu is a little hard to navigate at first, bearing names like The Zinger or Mr. C, but it’s all part of the charm (I highly recommend the Hare Krishna: fluffy egg whites filled with avocado, cheese, and griddle tomatoes).
