This place is a favorite of mine! God so good! First of all looks can be deceiving, yes it's in a strip mall! They have a BYOB policy and boy do people take advantage of it!
It's a small place but I'm always able to find a seat without waiting more than 10 minutes. This place is a regular haunt for the city's apparently huge Russian population.
Start yourself out with some hummus. There's isn't as good as Mythos, but it's darn good!
Another thing to try if you can brave the beets is the marinated beets! What are they marinated in? Parsley, vinegar and garlic. Read: garlic. Very garlicky.
The cheese and spinach pies take a while to bake, but are well worth it! Hot, soft pastry comes out to you with secret goodies inside!
Spinach with homemade bread was surprising also. It's about a foot long in a homemade bread that - the best way I can describe it is that it was kind of like a soft pizza dough. The spinach/garlic mixture inside was really tasty.
I always get the Lamb Lula Kebab (ground meat into a link). Pat gets the Beef and Chicken Shish (chunks of meat roasted on a kebab). My vegetarian friend tried the Falafel and it was pretty darn good. I would have eaten it myself if I could order anything but the lamb. The lula kebabs are HUGE! You get 2 kebabs and they are easily 14 inches each!
With each dinner you get your choices of rice, fries, Russian potatoes, salad or soup. If you go, do yourself a favor and try the Russian potatoes. They do not disappoint. It's sliced potatoes fried in a skillet with butter and fresh dill. They are so good. I could eat a whole skillet of them. The salad is not a mixed green salad but a tomato, cucumber, onion, garlic, cilantro salad. It's very tasty and refreshing.
It's a little out of the way near Harper's point but it's well worth it to try some authentic kebabs just outside the city.
