MOTEK, the family-owned Eastern Mediterranean restaurant celebrated for its warm hospitality and award-winning Arayes Burger, is delighted to expand its presence in South Florida. As a response to the overwhelming demand for their quality-driven restaurant, MOTEK is opening its third location at 45 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. The menu will offer authentic kosher-style Mediterranean dishes, presented in their beloved sunshine yellow atmosphere.

The menu boasts an All Day Brunch section with standouts like the Shakshuka, Hummus Shakshuka, and Jerusalem Grilled Cheese; a variety of Hummus options made daily in small batches to preserve freshness; extensive Cold & Hot Mezzes offerings; refreshing Salads; Kebabs; Homemade Flat-Pitas; Wraps with a variety of proteins; and Burgers including the restaurant’s famed Arayes Burger, which has been awarded the coveted People’s Choice Award at South Beach Wine and Food Festival’s popular kick-off Burger Bash two years in a row.
