Exotic Bites (1842 S. Young Cir., Hollywood, 954-921-6667) might not be as ethnically outlandish as it implies -- after all, the majority of diners are now familiar with Middle Eastern delicacies such as falafel, tabbouleh, gyros, and kebabs. But the little storefront eatery, which has a couple of outside tables for dining, does offer some excellent examples of the aforementioned, along with some crisp pita melts dotted with spinach or eggplant. Perhaps more interesting, though, is its selection of internationally styled coffees, ranging from espressos to cortaditos to iced honey vanilla lattes. Dunk a baklava or pistachio-stuffed "lady finger" pastry into one of these babies and there's a cross-cultural experience almost up to the level of exotic.
