Rating: Really fresh – transported me back to Greece
Yelp pointed me to this excellent San Francisco Greek place — that and I recognized it from the Zagat guide.
And this was easily the best I’ve had in the states (I’ve spent months in Greece). You can see the meat there and it had that lovely cinnamon / nutmeg thing going on which pairs with the rich béchamel.
Kokkari was a great “find.” In truth flavors are rarely even this pure in Greece, although there was this one restaurant I ate at on Rhodos that was very similar.
