26 | February 15, 2017 | Malibu surfside news Dining Out The Dish Malibu Mutt’s Grill boasts healthy falafel, more Barbara Burke Freelance Reporter “The falafel is great. I’d rate it a 10 on a 1-to-10 scale because it has great flavor, is healthy and is not terribly expensive,” Dan Ellis said. Ellis is one of many customers who favor Malibu Mutt’s Grill’s falafel. Falafel has been around since ancient times, as the Copts of Egypt are reputed to have made the dish during Lent. There’s a reason the dish has lived on. It’s hearty, healthy, and wholesome. “They make it fresh and that makes all the difference,” Dana Zaharia said. “When you do, it’s crunchy, not mushy.” Malibu Mutt’s Grill, a no-fuss walk-up establishment, is nestled in Malibu Village amidst high-end retail shops. It is a fabulous place to get a decent meal at a decent price. Try the falafel ($7.95) served harif (Hebrew for hot). It is truly scrumptious. Flavor-filled bits combine with the pita for a mouth-watering epicurean experience. “We make the falafel homemade with fresh garbanzo beans,” said Yang Park, proprietor of the joint. “Ninety percent of places use a powder and add water. We add tahini to the beans and season it with salt and pepper.” Other options include the cheddar melt burger ($7.95), with its meaty, juicy flavors and its excellent bun. One can add grilled onions for $1. A tuna melt with fries is another good choice ($11.95). The cheese melts in one’s mouth and one can taste how fresh the ingredients are. Malibu Mutt’s has been going strong at Malibu Village for 37 years. “I started the business in 1980,” Park said. “Then, Malibu was a quiet area. Now, many people come here. I love it here in Malibu. I’ve spent my life here. Malibu Mutt’s Grill 3835 Cross Creek Road, Malibu Hours Winter hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every day Phone: (310) 456-1211 Customers can call ahead to order.

Sheridan’s performance of “When Words Fail” was both hysterical and endearing. Finally mustering the gumption to approach Fiona, Shrek approaches where she has retired for the evening, only to mistake her remarks to Donkey about how hideous she is as an ogress for comments about him. Offended and dejected, he storms off the stage. Sunrise meets up with a dejected Fiona, who has decided to tell Shrek about the curse and her ogress affliction. However, Shrek, still deeply offended, rejects her overtures. Now upset, Fiona agrees to marry Farquaad, but convinces him to arrange the wedding before sundown. In other parts of the kingdom, the fairy tale creatures resolve to challenge the Prince and protest their maltreatment. Undaunted, Donkey finally convinces Shrek that Fiona cares about him and her insulting comments about having monster-like qualities were self-deprecating comments about herself. Shrek bolts to the castle, aborts the wedding at the very last minute, and declares his love for Fiona. Fiona, conflicted, is torn between her feelings for Shrek and her desire to break the curse. The tension is broken by the entrance of the protesting fairy tale creatures. Sunset arrives and Fiona transforms into an ogress in front of all gathered. Revolted, Farquaad still insists his wedding to Fiona is viable and he is now a king. Shrek whistles, summoning the dragon, who in a wonderful scene with special effect lighting slays Prince Farquaad, leaving Shrek and Fiona to declare their undying love for one another, despite the fact that Fiona’s spell was broken by their kiss. The drama ended with “This is Our Story,” with its words of wisdom such as, “What makes us special makes us strong.” Lastly, the whole ensemble sang a wonderful rendition of “I’m a Believer.” The audience left thrilled, knowing that beauty is in the eye of the ogre and that Sheridan is right: Everyone has something a little freakish about them. There is no perfect world. Let your freak flag fly!
