Additionally, there will be fresh Greek yogurt on hand with a selection of toppings available. A wide range of toppings includes house-made cherry syrup to olive oil, honey, and sea salt that will give patrons the option to create their own dessert.

A casual atmosphere with an ode to the taquerias of Southern California and Baja

Medina’s casual atmosphere, as well as its modern, clean, and colorful design, is inspired by the energy of the medinas and souks found in Morocco and Tunisia. The outdoor seating and soothing azure blue and white tiles will give diners a feeling of lounging by the Mediterranean Sea.
