The Plate: Poultry with Mediterranean flair

The Plate: Chicken kebab

The Place: Sofra, 821 Lake Ave., downtown Lake Worth; 557-2917.

The Price: $15

The Skinny: Mediterranean cuisine is gaining popularity across South Florida.

Chris’ Taverna has been packing customers into its two locations for years.

And Sofra, at the corner of Dixie Highway and Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth, is gaining a steady base of diners hungry for lemon chicken soup, fresh, creamy tzatziki and earthy falafel.

The restaurant opened a few months ago in a space that once was home to The French House.

This order of chicken kebabs was marinated, then grilled until fork-tender. It came with a starter of soup (I chose the excellent lemon chicken soup), a small, crisp salad and bulgur wheat and some grilled peppers. Next time, I want to try the octopus.
