Zo - Greek Lunch Spot in Center Plaza

The new Greek place where Café Latino was originally located opened today. Just had the regular gyro and a spanakopita (I think they gave it to me for free) and it was very good – somewhere quality-wise between Farm Grill and Mediteraneo. The spanakopita was actually one of the better ones I’ve had – they didn’t hold back on the butter (or possibly oil) between the filo layers, making it nice and crispy (no tongue-piercing shrapnel from the pastry). Ingredients all fresh, and the meat was sliced from actual cuts, not the giant cone of meat-colored particle board you see so often.
Got to Zo today - had the "classic" gyro for $6.75 - it was outstanding!
Loads of fresh sliced pork - as mentioned above, real meat - not the usual gyro-meat-amalgam. More meat than I ever have had on a gyro before - good fresh tomatoes, onions, parsley, yogurt sauce - also kept getting nice bites of fresh dill. Bread fluffy warm very fresh. The meat was too salty I think, but was not dried out at all - unlike what avial noted - hopefully they worked that out - The abundant tomatoes and sauce helped to sort of balance it out. Right now, this is my new favorite lunch spot.
They also offer chicken, and also a tuna pita and a pita with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. Fast line - clean digs. I think all sandwiches are in the 6.75 range.
They have stuffed grape leaves for $3.75 which look to be about 8-9 per pack.
Go now - and tell your friends.
