OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--Camilya's Mediterranean Cafe
Nov. 8, 2012: Camilya's has been expanding the menu for the last couple of years, and I have found several excellent new items in addition to the ones I was already enjoying. In fact, I think Camilya's gives me the greatest enjoyment of any Mediterranean or Middle Eastern restaurant in the city in terms of providing the best combination of good food, a varied menu, and a reasonable price. The biggest drawback is that it is so small service can be slower when there are a lot of customers. At the same time, though, the small scale operation is one thing that keeps the food quality at the top level.

One of the newest dishes I have discovered is the labaneh yogurt appetizer that is very good because of the olive oil and the sesame, thyme, and oregano seasoning mix used for flavoring. If yogurt sounds bland and boring, I find this dish to be far from it.

Another notable side dish is the spinach pie, although I could list several others that are very good.

For meat dishes the chicken tawook seems to be the best in the city, although I would probably also say the same thing about the gyros plate. All the other meats are good enough to provide a good rotation for different visits.

Between the different dishes that are available and substitutions that can be made in the salads, side dishes, meats, and appetizers, I rarely have had the exact same meal twice. All of them, though, have been very good.
