If there’s a sign that Parker’s culinary scene has evolved beyond generic burgers and Mexican, it’s the rich experience served up at Goga’s Mediterranean Cuisine.
The almost-six-month-old restaurant offers a small, well-edited Armenian and Greek menu with six choices of kabobs—from filet mignon to lamb—three fish selections, and a handful of salads and appetizers.
Give One Year of 5280 for just $16.
I opted for the lamb kabob with rice, baba ghanoush, and an Armenian salad (a mix of cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions). I like my lamb with a little bit of bite but not overdone, and my meal didn’t disappoint. The smooth baba ghanoush had just a hint of tang, and the salad was fresh and crunchy.
The entrÃ©e easily could have been enough for me and my two children, but kids get a choice of a beef or chicken kabob—plus sides—for free. They finished every bite of their tender chicken and hot fries. Even more entertaining: My three-year-old son stared at the belly dancer flitting among the tables. I think he got her number. (The belly dancer performs on Friday and Saturday evenings.)
Bonus: Goga’s servings are both generous and well priced, with dinner entrÃ©es running $10.99 to $16.99.
