The gyro made my tongue do cartwheels. It was that good. There’s nothing like Greek food to excite your tongue.
I met my wife for lunch in Downtown at George’s Greek Grill on Figueroa. This place is definitely the lunch spot for professionals.
Greek food combines frequently with tzatziki — yogurt spiked with cucumber — that provide an intriguing offset to the spicy and salty lamb and beef.
I got the chicken. I wish I had gotten the beef and lamb, which my wife got.
George’s takes the traditional Greek and puts hipster twist on it. Hummus gets zipped up with jalapeño and cilantro. Fries come with feta cheese and protein.
There are salads and falafel. There are wraps and pita chips. The menu is pretty long for a mostly lunch place.
