I usually tend to avoid anything with the word “bistro” in its name, since those types of restaurants always seem meat-centric to me. Also, from the outside, Jasmin looks like just another mid-eastern chain cafe. Not so! Luckily, Jasmin is a nice veggie-friendly Mediterranean restaurant.
They are, however, so successful that they’ve opened a total of five locations between Raleigh and Chapel Hill!
I’ve been to this (newly upgraded) location in Cary numerous times. It’s always a great meal (and a fair price).
I usually order the 3 or 4 veggie plate. Today I got lentil rice, grape leaves, and Baba Ghanouj with pita:
and Kate orders the standard falafel pita wrap.
Both are always quite good. Jasmin also has a few nice beverage options and desserts if you have room left (we’re usually too full.)
