In our Eat Smart Guide, we explore some of the classic Turkish ingredients we use at our takeaway; where they originate, their health benefits and traditional methods of preparation – you might be surprised at what you learn!

Eat Smart at Mega Charcoal Grill

Here at Mega, we are dedicated to providing delicious kebabs and healthy Mediterranean cuisine to our customers. The Med is famous for leading a super healthy lifestyle and cooking using fresh, quality ingredients. We aim to bring this way of life to the heart of Cheshunt.

We all love indulgent food and our takeaway provides plenty of this. But we pair this with traditional, healthy cooking methods and alternative food options for those who want a lighter meal. Basically, we offer the best of both worlds!

We believe in the ‘everything in moderation’ philosophy and that we are all entitled to indulge in the foods we love. However, we also want to enable our customers to have a variety of choice and to opt for healthier options if they desire this.

This means there is something for all the family. A kebab and chips for dad, a lighter kebab wrap for mum and a vegetarian burger for the daughter. We aim to cater for all different appetites with our menu and make sure everyone has enough choice.

Our Kebabs

We use the finest selection of meat for our kebabs which are then cooked on traditional hot charcoal grills. Meat is a great source of protein, zinc, iron, magnesium and vitamins A, B, and D. Including meat as part of a balanced diet will ensure you get enough protein as well as vitamins and minerals. This can help with the healthy functioning of your body.

If you are vegetarian there are other sources of protein such as chickpeas, which is what our houmous is made from.

Mediterranean ingredients are nourishing, versatile and delicious. We love to work with these ingredients and create new, exciting tastes and dishes. We are delighted to be able to share these ingredients with you in our Eat Smart section.
