[Comments] (3) It's Greek to Me: We went to the new Mediterranean restaurant. They didn't have gyros as such, but one of the sandwiches sounded like it approached them. This is the third day they have been open, and they are still figuring things out and bumping into each other in the kitchen etc. The place was full when we got there, and people kept coming in the whole time. I hope this place is successful because it is really good.

I had a chicken kebab and Rachel had a falafel sandwich. I thought their tabbouleh was wayyyy to heavy on the parsley and light on the wheat. Also, they serve Pepsi instead of Coke, but other than that, a really good lunch.

They were making that Armenian thing where you put spiced hamburger meat around the shish and grill it. This is served wrapped in a pita. I don't know what it is called, or I might have ordered it. It's been like 25 years since I had that.

They had big chunks of lamb and beef on big vertical spits. Chunks of meat had been hacked off and it made the whole setup look rather strange.

Oh, they have that popular vertical spit in Romania, it looks like it's piled with lunch meat or something, and the slice slices of the slices off and put it in a pita... never tried it.

Whenever I am in downtown LA, I like to eat at Charlie Kabob. Divine. And the name is catchy.

Food for thought, I ran across a good book: My Grandfather's Glasses by a cancer doctor at UCSF. It is pretty good. The authors name escapes me right now, sorry.
