    Order a side of lamb, side of fries, some feta and gobs of garlic-yogurt and hot sauce... pretty damn close to the Meat and Chips you can get late night in London... now if only they had brown gravy..

    Make sure to get extra sauce (yogurt sauce and hot sauce). Mac salad is to die for as well!

    The falafels are amazing. Super crispy on the outside & moist on the inside. Have them with the hot sauce.
