After indulging in all of the comfort food over the winter, many Michiganders focus on getting fit for a summer of beaches, boating, and outdoor activities. If you live in the Detroit area, there are plenty of healthy restaurant options to help you achieve your goals without being miserable in the process.
When it comes to eating healthy without sacrificing taste, we favor Mediterranean eateries that offer tantalizing build-your-own options. Explore five metro Detroit restaurants where you can create Mediterranean bowls and wraps with all of the flavor and none of the guilt.
Mr. Kabob Xpress (Troy & Southfield)
Mr. Kabob Xpress in Troy builds upon the reputation of their original location at the Sunoco station in Berkley. The lovable guys at the gas station unleashed their new concept in 2015, allowing guests to create their own bowls and wraps. Mr. Kabob purists can enjoy their legendary garlic sauce and hummus along with a medley of fresh ingredients. Pile on all of the veggies your heart desires, then finish your creation with perfect proteins like filet kabob or chicken cream chop.
2941 Street Food (Multiple Locations)
Perhaps the restaurant with the most unique menu on our list, 2941 Street Food offers tasty protein options like pork, lamb sausage, tandoori chicken, and more. There’s no shortage of sauces to add some zip to your bowl or sandwich and the selection of pickled vegetables pack a punch. With locations in Rochester Hills, Birmingham, and Detroit, there’s no reason not to give 2941 Street Food a try.
Kalamata Greek Grill (Royal Oak & Troy)
Get your Greek on! For you Gyro lovers out there, Kalamata Greek Grill is right up your alley. Fill up a flavorful bowl or wrap by choosing from Kalamata’s signature combinations or create your own. We love their “Zesty” profile, complete with tomatoes, pepperoncini peppers, and Feta dip.
Chickpea Kitchen (Sterling Heights)
When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, Chickpea Kitchen in Sterling Heights delivers. Choose from a variety of meats or falafel, load up on hummus and fresh vegetables, and finish with a homemade sauce. Chickpea Kitchen has an efficient assembly line, ensuring you’ll receive a healthy and delicious Mediterranean meal that won’t slow you down.
Estia Greek Street Food (Troy)
We love how Estia Greek Street Food prepares fresh pitas right in front of your eyes. As you’d expect, the warm pita bread creates the foundation for a phenomenal wrap. Their bowls are delicious, too. Go Greek with your choice of traditional gyro meat, grilled chicken, or roasted pork. If you’re feeling naughty and want to indulge, grab a side of Flaming Cheese (Opa!) or Greek Fries topped with feta.
