Wine newbie, what to pair with medeterranian food? (Shawarma, falafel, rice, potato)

MODS: please don't move this to some other section because I'm inquiring about wines readily available at the LCBO only.

Hi folks -- I know absolutely NOTHING about wine, in fact, I can say that I've never had a wine that wasn't about $7 and poured from a box... But I've been asked by someone to pick a wine for dinner later tonight, and I only have 90 mins until the LCBO closes.

I need something that is going to go well with things like chicken shawarma, falafel, rice, potatoes, and a caesar salad. I'm also thinking that a good pick for tonight would work with greek food as well; like a chicken souvlaki dinner, etc.

Does anybody have any suggestions for me that I can go run to the LCBO and pick up? Hell, if its a good pairing, maybe I will finally start to appreciate wine and can only grow from here. Otherwise, I'll probably be a beer guy forever :)

I appreciate the help, any quick responses will come in very handy!

Thanks in advance!

Oh, and hopefully it wont break the bank... No $100 bottles for me yet, since I doubt I could appreciate it
