Chicken Shawarma Halal
ICON Mediterranean is the only restaurant in Miami to serve Chicken Shawarma Halal and Steak Shawarma Halal. It’s the healthiest category of meat, with the highest quality.
The Samoon Bread, an authentic Iraqi bread, is made fresh daily in-house. It’s similar to pita bread and offers a healthy base that’s mixed with whole wheat flour and white flour with a unique ICON Mediterranean twist.
The Hummus is carefully crafted for three days. On the first day, the chickpeas are soaked. On the second day, they are boiled, washed and set in a cooler. On the final day of prep, the hummus is made.
The Falafel is made over a two-day prep. The beans are first soaked and then mixed with chopped vegetables and herbs.
In addition, diners can also experience American-style breakfast plates, including a selection of breakfast bowls and wraps. The restaurant also has a full menu of premium coffees and fresh 100% organic fruit juices, as well as a curated selection of wine and beers.
