Mediterranean and Greek Cuisine

Nothing is as refreshing as a mezze platter or seafood sampler with Mediterranean flavors on a sunny Southern California day. Visit Daphne’s California Greek at 4261 Inland Empire Blvd. B101, Ontario, a local chain offering fast, friendly counter service. Fresh-carved gyros in house pita bread, the fire feta for a kick of spice, or the spanakopita with falafel and a Greek salad are all popular options.

There’s also Alina’s Lebanese Cuisine at 2250 S. Archibald Ave., Ontario. They’re famous for traditionally prepared chicken and beef kebabs along with falafel and a variety of vegetarian options. Try out one of the shakes or parfaits for a sweet treat, and you might want to take a tin of the hummus back to your Ontario hotel for a snack.

Fresh and Healthy

Café Moderno is located nearby at 9197 Central Ave., Montclair. The counter service mom-and-pop restaurant is a local favorite known for gyros and kebab plates. You’ll want to get a side of the fragrant rice and perhaps a tandoori-style pita or two to go.

Don’t miss out on the flavors at Mezzaterranean, located at 9491 Foothill Blvd. #B, Rancho Cucamonga. The family owned and operated restaurant is on the map because of their shawarma platters and fried kibbeh.

With so many delicious options, you’ll have to try all four and see which is your favorite.
