This fast-casual Mediterranean spot is underneath a newly-constructed apartment complex and near a hard hat zone, but also is conveniently near the Columbia City light rail station. Their beef/lamb gyro sandwiches are excellent, with highly flavorful meat and tzatziki that has a spicy kick to it. Chicken shawarma and falafel are good orders here, too. This place is great for a quick weeknight dinner, whether you’re staying to eat it or just picking something up on the way home.
