I've been checking out my new neighborhood restaurants since I moved but only ended up at Papa Cristo's after Mr. Bento turned me away for not having cash. This turned out to be a fortuitous turn of events as on my way home to make a sadsack turkey sandwich I happened upon Papa Cristo's. It was as if the fog on the Aegean Sea lifted and there was the parthenon shining like a beacon. Only this parthenon was only slightly in ruins and was filled with all the olives and yogurt you could ever wish to consume.
They also had a little deli and restaurant inside, so I hurried in looking for something to satiate my George Popadopolous sized appetite. When I saw the lamb and feta sandwich, of course I couldn't resist. My taste for sheep babies is unrivaled. I zipped home and tore into that sucker, and though the sandwich only really consisted of some slabs of lamb and some melted feta on sourdough bread, what more could I have asked for? It was simple, satisfying and delicious. And it also came with some vinegar infused side dish of cauliflower and olives.
I am looking forward to returning and sampling one of their insanely delectable baklava and pastries (so I've been told) If I would have run into Papa Cristo himself, I would have rubbed mustaches with the gentleman.
