Has anybody gone to the 9th Avenue Food Festival this year and seen kokoretsi? It's a greek dish of lamb offal cooked on a spit, and I think Ninth Avenue International Foods on 40th has had it in previous years. I never had it myself, but it's kind of a holy grail in my family, I've heard it's kind of an "ultimate dish"... Anyone tried it?

    The Turks call it kokorec. Tried it my first trip to Istanbul. It's been a while, as I recall, it's pretty greasy and gamey,
