Taste of Galilee - Plano

Worzel Gummidge | Nov 11, 2007 12:07 PM

Just went to new (or relatively so -- it opened in June) Taste of Galilee on Central Expy. in Plano. Its a middle eastern menu offered a la carte and in a buffet.

The buffet is incredible value offering cold items such as humus, eggplant and cousous salad. Hot items include beef and lamb gyros, chicken, spinach 'turnovers' (I don't know the correct term for these), roast potatoes and zuchinni ragout. One unusual dish is individual 6 inch pizzas topped with beef and spices (including cumin and cinnamon) that give the meat a sweet taste.

The buffet is $8.95 at lunch and $11.95 at dinner. It is owned by the same family that owns Food from Galilee down near SMU (open 16 years) and the newer Galilee Grille at Elm and Akard.

The restaurant is BYOB with no corkage charge. We shall definately be going back to sample the buffet with some wine in the near future. Recommended.
