Gourmet Express opened in January 2004 and is a hidden gem serving up the best Mediterranean cuisine in all of Milpitas. Owner Sahar Harb grew up learning cooking skills and techniques from watching her family prepare meals. After many years of catering experience and 12 years of restaurant managing, Sahar aspired to share her own specialty Mediterranean recipes with the Milpitas community. She opened Gourmet Express and works hard every day to see that her guests leave full, happy, and satisfied. Your dining experience at Gourmet Express will feel as if you are dining in Sahar’s home and she’s cooked something special just for you. Every dish at Gourmet Express is homemade with fresh ingredients, original spice mixtures, and is prepared with love. Sahar uses family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, making for a unique home style Mediterranean meal. One of the most popular dishes at Gourmet Express is the homemade Falafel, which can be ordered as a sandwich or platter. Both dishes come with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and tahini sauce all rolled up in fresh pita bread. The Chicken Shawarma is also amongst the most widely ordered dishes. The chicken is made with lemon, spices, and Lebanese style garlic cream that Sahar makes from scratch – it gives the chicken a wonderful flavor. Also try the Chicken Kebobs made with a seasoning recipe that Sahar learned from her grandmother and mother. Perfect to go along with any dish is the Houmus dip, made fresh with garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. No matter what dish you order at Gourmet Express, you are guaranteed to have a hot and delicious meal cooked from the heart. Be sure to save room for the great dessert offered as well! Pepsi products and Snapple are available on the beverage menu and you may also order yogurt drinks (mint or plain flavor) based on an Iranian recipe. You may dine-in, carry-out, or have your meal delivered to your door. When dining in, order at the counter and pay after you finish. Reservations are accepted as well. Gourmet Express also provides excellent catering services for any event or special occasion. In 2016, Gourmet Express won Best Mediterranean Cuisine in Milpitas and is adored by locals and travelers alike.
