Healthy Grab-and-Go Meals at Medley Modern Mediterranean

by - Saturday, August 31, 2019

In this fast-paced environment we are currently living in, we tend to focus on what needs to be done that we forget what matters most. Taking a breather seems impossible, and even a simple search for a quick and healthy bite seems daunting. 
This situation is nothing new to most of us, but David Tweg thought that there is something that can be done.

Medley Modern Mediterranean is a grab-and-go concept founded by Israeli-born David Tweg in January 2019. They offer fresh and healthy, traditional Mediterranean food inspired by three generations of the Tweg family's recipes. 

Lemon & Herb Chicken Salad P299
We started our meal with a light and hearty lemon & herb chicken salad which had diced herbed chicken on a bed of chopped lettuce, red bell peppers, and Moroccan carrot salad, all tossed in their garlic sauce. What I loved most about the salad was that it wasn't drenched in too much dressing. It was also very light but filling at the same time. And oh, just look at how much chicken is in there and tell me that this isn't worth its price?!

Falafel Crunch with Hummus + Pita P329
One of the best dishes I've tried in Medley is their falafel crunch with hummus and pita It's a dish that's overflowing with flavors, although not to an overwhelming extent. The hummus and pita were great, but the highlight of this dish to me was the mouthwatering combination of the falafel, tabbouleh, corn salad, and garlic sauce. You get a little bit of herby, zing, crunch all in one bite!

Levantine Chicken with Mediterranean Rice P259
Aside from the falafel, another dish I would definitely recommend is the levantine chicken with Mediterranean rice. Just like the falafel, this one also has a bunch of flavors, mostly coming from the chicken, except that this has matbukha sauce (spicy). It's one of the best-sellers in Medley and I do not object to it. It's a must-try!

The Legaspi Pizza P299
The legaspi pizza is the dish that started it all. It first became available at the Legaspi Sunday Market in Makati, and avid fans of this pizza can now grab it in BGC. It's a 9" thin crust pizza with a basil pesto base, mozzarella, beef kofte, spinach, bell peppers, and carrot salad. It's good especially with some extra drizzles of the garlic sauce, and it's very affordable for its size!
Levantine Chicken Laffa P269
The levantine chicken laffa tastes the same as the on with the rice, except that this one did not have the spicy sauce and it comes in a roll. 
Ginger Mint Lemonade P99 (22 oz)
For drinks, we were each given a cup of the ginger mint lemonade which we all found very refreshing! Now don't get repelled after reading the word "ginger" in the drink. Its taste was light, but its presence makes a good combination with the mint to negate all the extra citrus that makes lemonades very sour.  

These dishes we had were already set and just served to us, but since my sister is really into Mediterranean food, I figured I'd stop by the shop before going home and order her a bowl. You'll be happy to know that apart from the short wait, you can also customize your orders to replace items that you don't want with items that you do. (Oh, and she loved the levantine chicken with rice that I ordered for her)

From a simple stall in Legaspi market to a 24/7 falafel shop in El Nido, and now a grad-and-go concept, Medley Modern Mediterranean is truly making a change by making people realize that healthy food need not be bland, boring, or take a 45-minute wait to enjoy.
