Taziki’s Mediterranean Café is adding a spring-inspired new item to their delicious Mediterranean menu.

The new Quinoa Bowl boasts a punch of flavor while paying homage to the original Horiatiki, which is a salad traditionally made in Greece.

While visiting Tinos, a Greek island situated in the Aegean Sea, Taziki’s Founder Keith Richards became inspired by the vast flavor that came from the fresh, clean and colorful foods of the island. Beginning April 22, Taziki’s will be sharing this powerful flavor experience with its guests in a new vehicle—a bowl.

Ancient grains are now a regular facet of living the good life and eating healthy. At one time a sacred crop, quinoa is now a superfood for its high nutrient content.

Accompanying this bowl of ancient grains, customers will find the Taziki’s Tino’s Salad—a mix of cucumbers, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, garnished with capers, an ingredient endemic to nearly all of the Mediterranean countries.

“Seeing my children sharing these fresh, yet simple flavors during our time in Greece was the moment I knew this item would be perfect for Taziki’s,” says Keith Richards, founder of Taziki’s Mediterranean Café. “Our culture is about sharing Mediterranean with the rest of the world in an approachable way.”

The company is still enjoying success from newly released guest favorites—Chicken and Beef Kebobs, which can be added as a protein to the new Quinoa Bowl.

“At Taziki’s we believe that our guests should enjoy the true benefits of real food that is packed with nutrients and flavor,” adds Dan Simpson, CEO of Taziki’s Mediterranean Café. “Our team is committed to developing new menu items that are both unique and healthy.”

Taziki’s is a rapidly expanding brand, named one of America’s fastest growing leaders by Inc. 5000 in the fresh-casual industry. Having more than tripled in size since 2011, Taziki’s has more than 90 restaurant locations, spanning across 17 states nationally. Development plans include building the brand in existing markets, as well as entering into new areas across the country by 2023.
