Sitting in the scent of authentic Mediterranean cuisine is enough to satiate anyone.
For foodies on a large scale, Welwyn Garden City’s Gras Restaurant has a number of truly delicious dishes on their menu – from breakfast options to lighter portions and traditional mains from the grill.
We take a look at some of the tastiest meals inspired by some of the best Mediterranean recipes, including dishes for vegetarians, vegans, seafood lovers, and more.
When we imagine the perfect UK breakfast, traditional full English is not far from most people’s minds. Staying true to the classic breakfast foods we all know and love, like scrambled eggs on toast and pancakes, Gras has made a delicious alternative.
Mediterranean breakfast brings a taste of Southern Europe to Welwyn Garden City. Fresh salad, olives, beef, and halloumi make a hearty meal to start your day, while honey and jam make a sweet combo on toast.
Along with well-known British options and American-style dishes, the Mediterranean breakfast makes a unique and delicious addition to the morning menu.
Grilled swordfish steak
Fish is a beloved staple of the Mediterranean diet, be it Greek, Turkish, Lebanese or Italian. Fried calamari with lemon slice, fresh sea bass and king butterfly prawns cooked in champagne and butter are some of the delicious options on the Gras menu.
One of the most eye-catching dishes you’ll find in the seafood section is the grilled swordfish steak. It’s a truly authentic and one of the most popular seafood dishes – grilled and seasoned to perfection with a side of fresh vegetables.
Homemade tartar sauce enhances the flavor of the swordfish. It is a real treat that combines the smoky aromas of barbecue and the taste of the sea.
Mediterranean Mix Grill
It’s not just fish that is a succulent main dish – chicken, lamb and beef are also popular meat-based dishes from the grill. The Mediterranean is known for its delicious meals, from Greek and Turkish-style kebabs and souvlaki rolls, to skewers of grilled chicken thighs with aromatic spices.
The Mixed Grill is the perfect centerpiece for diners – with marinated lamb cutlets, juicy grilled chicken, lamb kofta and a selection of chicken wings on top of it all.
Known the world over for strong flavors and high-quality ingredients, Italian cuisine is based on pasta. While meat or vegetables are a popular topping, Gras’ lobster spaghetti takes this beloved dish to the next level.
Possibly the best seafood and pasta dish in one place, the lobster spaghetti has proven to be a true favorite among regular Gras customers.
The dish includes half of fresh lobster, with saffron and tomato sauce. Tossed on a bed of fresh spaghetti, onions and mushrooms add real depth of flavor to this already amazing main course.
Meat and seafood are staples of the Mediterranean, but that doesn’t mean vegetarians, vegans, and those with specific dietary requirements can’t experience the full flavors of these wonderful dishes.
There are plenty of options for vegetarians, and dishes can be made vegetarian upon request. Vegetable moussaka is a great example – sliced potatoes, mixed peppers, broccoli and cauliflower are all cooked in a rich tomato sauce and topped with béchamel sauce.
A lot of effort goes into vegetarian dishes like barbecue and seafood, to ensure that every dinner has a great experience.
