The deliciousness at Shawkat Mediterranean Grill is doubled as the restaurant also acts as a pita bread bakery. Lebanese cuisine, along with some American favorites, are offered with sahteyn, a blessing of health and welcome. Try a wrap or platter including labni with cheese, tomato, onion, olives and olive oil or the baba ganoush with spiced eggplant purée, tomato, onion, parsley and pickles. You’ll also find customary favorites, like variations of gyros and falafel. House platters include Jake’s Special with skewers of grilled chicken and kafta (grilled ground chuck) served with hashweh seasoned rice. Salads, savory pies, cabbage rolls and traditional deserts including baklava and cashew rolls are other highlights. 4123 S. Sheridan Rd., Tulsa;
