Yalla Mediterranean Grand Opening + Giveaway - Fremont

Fremont has a new fast casual Mediterranean restaurant called Yalla Mediterranean. The restaurant is in a bustling plaza with Whole Foods, Boudin SF, and See's Candy. I recently attended a preview opening for the location and received the following meal complimentary as part of a training day for their staff.

The concept is to choose a wrap, salad, or plate.
Then choose a protein like chicken shawarma, shalafel (half falafel & chicken shawarma, kefta (lamb and beef), salmon, steak, or chicken.
After that you choose sauces, toppings, and sides which can be a variety of Mediterranean salads.

The skewers are cooked on a patented open-flame rotisserie grill that runs for 3 minutes. Different meats are put on at different times. For example, Salmon is started later on the belt than a kefta skewer would. By the time the rest of the order is ready, the meat finishes cooking and joins the meal for final assembly before check out. It's a very quick system. Did I mention each item costs less than $10? For an extra $2.50, you can add another portion of protein and it could be the same or different than your first protein.

Here is a sampling of what we tried at their preview day. I was impressed with the freshness of all their salads. My favorites are the Moroccan carrot salad and cous cous. The salmon and kefta seasonings were particularly flavorful but the chicken shawarma is really good. I can also see it going well in wraps.

($9.95) Kefta Plate with lentils, potato salad, cous cous, and carrot salad.

($9.95 + $2.50 for extra meat) Falafel and salmon with hummus, baba ganoush, and beet salad.

($9.95 - $2.50 for extra meat) Kefta and salmon with cabbage slaw, cucumber and tomato salad, Moroccan carrot salad, and cous cous.

Yalla fries with house made sauce. This is a sample size.
