Definitely Healthy and Definitely Delicious –Roti Modern Mediterranean Opens on Jackson Street

In a sea of fast food joints and pizza parlors, Chicago has gotten the reputation for unhealthy eating. It is not a sin to grab a burger, but lately people are watching what they eat more and more. We are becoming a city of health conscious eaters and exercisers. We see this trend with the opening of more eating places that emphasize organic meats and products from local farms. Roti is one of those places and we got the privilege to try the food at the newest restaurant located right in the Loop.

Jen ordered a yummy salad with some of their antibiotic chicken and some of the sauces that Roti Modern Mediterranean is known for. The menu is filled with variety and there is something for everyone. Even Gluten free diners can enjoy the fare here.  The sauces range from the traditional dill yogurt and cucumber to the spicy green sh’ug for those like it a little more spicy. I decided to have one of the pitas and then stuff it with goodies. The pita was fresh and soft and warm from the oven. My steak was not spicy at all. I also nibbled at a little bit of the salmon and it was moist and not dry. It also wasn’t that salty. Their choice of sides and toppings was awesome. I loved the roasted eggplant, couscous and hummus. The finishing touch was the fresh feta cheese.

Drinks at Roti are also an experience. For the soda drinkers, they carry all of the Coca Cola products . This made Jen happy. They also had some unusual drink combinations like the pomegranate and black tea. Yummy. They also had a cucumber mint combination that calmed. It reminded me of the water that is provided at the salon and the gym. There was also a black tea unsweetened and a watermelon coconut water that I didn’t try.

The latest Roti Modern Mediterranean Grill will officially open on Wednesday. The friendly folks there will help you make choices and help make your dining experience pleasant. They will be open until nine and on the weekends at seven. Perfect for shopping or pre-theatre dining. The new store is located at 55 E Jackson Street.
