There's a shortage of authentic Mediterranean restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, so Ferdos is a welcome little hideway. A small house that is sort of in a strip mall, Ferdos is quaint and friendly. There's a bar are with tables, and a second dining room with booths and artwork from Syria.
The menu is has a range of lamb, beef and chicken dishes with plenty for vegetarians as well. You start with a basket of flatbread pita; there's olive oil on every table. Appetizers include felafel, grape leaves (veggie or lamb), hummus, or delicious mussels, a big bowl which is plenty for 2 or even 4 as an app.
For lunch, they have platter specials which are just enough. The include a small salad, spiced onions, rice, hummus and a single skewer (for the kebabs). The Shish Kabob are chunks of sirloin, while the Kafka are spiced and marinated beef served with a garlic, yogurt sauce.
On weekends, the place is much different as Belly Dancers perform and the place gets a little crazy. All and all, a fun and interesting place for something a bit out of the ordinary.
