Restaurant, UIW makes eating ‘Pasha’ble

By Nico Ramón


Pasha, a traditionally sit-down restaurant, partnered with the University of the Incarnate Word and came up with a new idea called Pasha Express Mediterranean.

This week through Saturday, Pasha, which had its grand opening Monday, Oct. 2, will be disregarding the menu prices and accepting purely donations. And 100 percent of the proceeds will go towards Hurricane Harvey relief.

Pasha Mediterranean Grill was brought to life by two families in 2008, with the intention of creating a culinary experience fit for a Pasha — a high-ranking Turkish officer. But it’s Mediterranean cuisine with quick service.

After six months of negotiation and construction, Pasha Express Mediterranean came alive in space formerly occupied by Sodexo-operated dining in Dr. Burton E. Grossman International Conference Center.

From chicken sandwiches from Chick-fil-A to New York-style pizza from Luciano’s, Pasha has brought to campus a Mediterranean flair to the student body with more flavor-filled options.

Nate Costa, operations manager of Pasha Express Mediterranean, said he is excited to be at UIW.

“I am excited to see how we can expand this concept,” Costa said. “A college campus is a great starting point to try new things because students are open to try new things. We just don’t want to be here on campus. We wanna be involved with the school and community just like the family who owns the company.”
