i work in the pearl & am always looking for something fast & afforadable. i've been to medena of the pearl three times now & am consistently disappointed. the pita bread is thin, dry & virtually tasteless. the falafel is dry yet strangely adhesive. the tabbouleh has huge chunks of parsley & very little bulgur. all in all the food is verging on bland (for middle eastern food) & the guy who owns it (?) is verging on d-bag (read: the service is weak).
