Great vegetable roll-ups at Thea's (Santana Row, San Jose)

Just letting everyone (especially vegetarians) know that my uncle and I had wonderful vegetable roll-ups at Thea's Mediterranean Restaurant at lunch. It did not sound too exciting and I didn't have high expectations. But Thea's did something so few restaurants do correctly...they cooked the eggplant really nicely. SO, the roll-up was grilled eggplant, grilled red bell peppers and onions, fresh spinich, feta and tziki. The lavash bread was nice and soft. SUPER!

I have had better flaming cheese (and more enthusiasm from waiters when lighting it) elsewhere, but it was adequate.

No room for dessert. Nice outdoor patio, though a bit loud due to garbage pick-up. Nice touch, having cucumber in the water.
