Daphne's Greek Cafe
Daphne's, the fresh and wholesome fast casual known for its nourishing and healthy Mediterranean-inspired offerings, has embraced its culinary roots with the addition of hand-carved chicken shawarma. This authentic Mediterranean dish is made from tender Halal meat, slow-roasted on a vertical spit, and seasoned with sumac, pepper, cinnamon, and other herbs. 
Shawarma has long been a staple across the Mediterranean, and Daphne's guests can now add it to their plates, salads, and bowls, or enjoy it on the new Chicken Shawarma Pita Melt, available for a limited time through December 29, 2019. This elevated pita sandwich features warm pita bread coated with pesto sauce and melted mozzarella & feta cheeses, then topped with roasted bell peppers and the spice-forward chicken shawarma. This savory newcomer is now available for $8.99 at all Daphne's locations via in-store and online ordering. 
"We enjoy providing a wide variety of offerings to our guests, and the chicken shawarma, which is roasted using a centuries-old technique, is a true return to Daphne's Mediterranean roots," said Michael Nakhleh, President of Daphne's parent company, Elite Restaurant Group. "I'm particularly excited about the Chicken Shawarma Pita Melt, which stars traditional shawarma in a contemporary format, because it celebrates the Mediterranean flavors our guests expect from Daphne's, while still incorporating our own unique spin."
