Spitz in Eagle Rock- good for the veggie crowd,too
I wandered into Spitz on my lunch break last week, not expecting to find too much of interest in a place featuring gyro-type sandwiches. As a vegetarian, I was really impressed by their vegetable doner sandwiches, available either with falafel or without.
I loved the flatbread sandwich, served warm with fresh tomatoes, lettuce, olives, peppers and pepperoncinis, as well as tasty tziki and hummus. It was very satisfying and unique.
Of course, I had to follow it with a medium gelato, half bananas foster (awesome) and half pumpkin. The employee was nice enough to offer "as many samples as you want" ( a welcome change from some of their competition). I thought I recognized the gelato, and then found out it was the same brand (Gelato Classico) I fell in love with in Mountain View. For any so inclined, they have a dark purple cabernet variety.
