Nick the Greek Souvlaki & Gyro House in San Jose

Beef/Lamb Pita

This is a local chain of gyro shops that I've never tried before, so we had their food delivered for lunch today. At first, I was quite impressed, as the tzatziki was loaded with lots of fragrant dill weed. But then I bit into the meat, which was so salty that one couldn't even really taste the beef and lamb. Indeed, I almost didn't want to finish it.

Well, hopefully the soup would come save the day. See, I wanted to try their avgolemono soup, which sounded interesting since it was made with lemon and egg. Fortunately, it wasn't as salty, but it was loaded with a bunch of dry chicken breast meat. Sigh. Well, I suppose that none of this should be any surprise for a fast food place around here. But yeah, I don't think I'll be ordering from here again.

You should totally try Souvlaki in Willow Glen. Hands down the closest that I've had to the stuff in Greece. Nick the Greek doesn't even come close! I hate that place.
