    I guess it's personal preference and comfort for me. Where I grew up, I had never even heard of a shawarma, IIRC. So it was gyros whenever I wanted that style of food. When I moved west, I just got pissed that I could never even find a gyro stand or store anywhere. Although I guess I'm not judging shawarma too fairly either, because every one of the several that I've had has been bad and very poorly made.

    +1

    I grew up in the Chicago area and like you have been really disappointed in the gyros I've found. Today for lunch I had about the worst gyro I've ever had in my whole life. I'm going to try the shawarma this weekend so I'll let everyone know what I think.


    Oh yea, tonight I had lamb chops and a potato it was pretty darn good for never having made lamb chops before.

    Well -- it was a little chilly today -- and we had leftover short-ribs so...

    Keller's 231,000,999,000 calorie Beef Stroganoff. I apologize for over saucing the pasta...I couldn't help myself.

    Headed down to the newest local place tonight. It's got a focus on locally raised ingredients and really great flavors (plus it has an "artisan bread bar" with soup and salad):

    --Cheese and ale soup
    --"Deconstructed" roasted garlic spread (boccacini marinated with sundried tomatoes and capers in olive oil, served with a grilled challah-like bread and a whole head of roasted garlic)
    --Caesar-style Salad with a house-made ranch, accompanied by a selection of house-made breads and compound butters
    --Potato and onion ravioli in a wild mushroom cream sauce
    --Split a really great strawberry shortcake with the wife to wrap things up


    Really enjoying finally having a local, upscale place that's fun and a little more casual than the nice Southern/French places we usually visit.

    I had basmati rice, chicken breast, a little bit of asparagus, and brussel sprouts with bacon.

    I love these pink things - I always ask for extra

    + 1. They're called 'leffit'. The ones my grandmother makes are amazing.

    Is that your homemade blood sausage?

    I had to do about fifty of those a day. Next time I see you, I will show you the napkin fold that goes with them. [​IMG] Sausages are garlic, homemade and awesome.
