If you aren't familiar with the school Mediterranean, we are a family owned um, and Lebanese inspired restaurant in Raleigh and Cary, North Carolina, and we serve a lot of fresh, healthy salads, grilled kebabs, lots of pita sandwiches and wraps in some really amazing hot items as well. And we're here to tell you about our fair feature today. Our contribution to the fair features is going to be the crispy garlic chicken sandwich with a cabbage slaw on top. You can see we have it right here. You can see the creamy garlic, a few slices of roasted potato, a crispy grilled chicken thigh and then that refreshing cabbage slaw on top. And what we really love about the fair, um, is that luring aroma that comes all the way into the parking lot that you can smell on Trinity Road on Blue Ridge Road is your driving up. You know you're stuck in the parking traffic. Um, this is something that we remember as kids, and we, you know, we still go to the fair, um, to this day. But that smell is something that captures you. And even as you're walking through the fairgrounds through the bustling, bustling people, you know, it's so crowded you're kind of leading with your nose and eso We thought that this dish would be really appropriate for our fair feature. Because as we're grilling the garlic chicken thighs every day, you can actually smell it in our parking lots on DPI. PPA will come in like, what is that smell? So we thought that we would kind of replicate that same experience of bringing people in. This would definitely be a sandwich that if you smelled it while it was being prepared, you would never pass it up. There would definitely be a big line. Oh, yeah? Yeah. And the taste is Justus. Good. Is the smell too? Yes. This sandwich is amazing. I've eaten probably about five of them so far. While we were testing the rest of beauty and testing Rest? Yes, we have to test the recipe again. Um, but what we're gonna miss most about the fair is that my sister and I, we both have birthdays in the month of October, and they always fall during the fair time. And so it was always a super special thing for us. We would get a bunch of friends, go to the fair together, and it would be like a big birthday party that birthday party? Yeah, the year it would always top it going out. We don't want cake. We want deep fried Oreos. But that's definitely something we're gonna miss out on this year. Um, but, you know, way get to do this feature, which is something super special, and we look forward to next year. That's right way. Can't wait to see everyone at both locations to try our crispy garlic chicken sandwich feature. It will be available from October 15th through October 25th at both sexual locations in Raleigh and carry.
