Journalist food: Mediterranean cuisine from La Marsa

(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 16, 2022)

Bloomfield Hills, Brighton, Farmington Hills, Fenton, South Lyon, Troy, Waterford and West Bloomfield, MI – LaMarsa is a local chain of Mediterranean restaurants in Southeast Michigan.

I recently hosted a take-out feast in Bloomfield Hills at 43259 Woodward. The Chicken Shawarma Sandwich is a wrap made with chicken, garlic sauce and pickles. I also had spinach pies – savory pastries filled with spinach and seasonings. And there was hummous with raw vegetables including tomato, carrots, celery and cucumber. It was great to have hummus and veggies to snack on all day, and the other items were also good.

La Marsa offers traditional items such as falafel, kaftka, skewers and shawarma. The almond garlic ghallaba is served Classic or Zesté. It contains pieces of meat of your choice, sautéed with vegetables, garlic and Mediterranean seasonings mixed with rice, almonds and garlic. There’s also mousaka, which is eggplant, and salads like Greek, tabbouleh, fattoush, and cucumber.
