Beef Sheesh Kebab: Lean ground beef mixed and marinated w house spices - 2

Chicken Sheesh Kebab: Ground chicken mixed and marinated w house spices - 2

J's comment > got this as the Combo Sheesh Meal; beef kebab not bad, very tender beef, moist and juicy; chicken slightly dry but still flavorful

Sirloin Steak Meal: 10oz of AAA local beef marinated w house spices - 2

J's comment > a bit on the raw side (we asked for medium rare) and a bit tough and chewy, but lots of gristle for me just the way I like it; very flavorful

Roast Lamb Meal: Chunks of tender lamb marinated in Mediterranean spices and roasted over slow flames - 2

J's comment > meat slightly firmer than I like, slightly misleading as the menu read 'chunks' instead of lamb shank, but very easy to get at bone marrow, so extra points! Jus could be a tad more bold flavored

Garlic sauce - 2

Tzatziki Sauce - 2

Hummus - 2

Baba Ghanoosh - 2

J's comment > the garlic 'sauce' was butter methinks, hence it automatically moved to the top of the pack (dang, this was addictive 'sauce'!); the tzatziki had a good garlic punch, but was well balanced w the cucumber and yogurt; hummus and baba ghanoosh similar texture but flavors just different enough to differentiate

Araise: Pita bread stuffed w marinated lean ground beef - 2

J's comment > pita slightly crisp; not as much beef as I imagined, but definitely a different dish to try; FYI, the pita themselves were very soft and firm yet fluffy (you gotta try it to see what I mean)

Baked potatoes - 2

J's comment > potatoes tad firmer than I like; jus OK though

Greek salad - 2

J's comment > your avg greek salad...

Caesar salad - 2

J's comment > your avg caesar...

Baklava - 2

J's comment > not bad; very crisp, not too sweet; would have been perfect if not for this weird floury aftertaste

All the meals come w salad, rice, pita bread, tzatziki sauce, apparently potatoes too! FYI, the owner/chef was very nice and offered to platter-size all the sides like you see above
