Garlic Crush is an Eastside Greatest Hit for many reasons. Their falafel is excellent, their lamb/beef gyros are excellent, their shawarma is excellent, their hummus is excellent, and their baklava is also excellent. Service is fast, and takeout travels well if you’re taking your food back to Seattle.
