Does any place in Boston make a killer roast lamb and feta sandwich?

There's a place in Los Angeles (Papa Cristo's) that makes a great lamb and feta sandwich, but Boston has to have LA beat in terms of Greek food, no? (Photo here: ) Where should I go to scratch this itch?

        Duh. You're right. It's the pork they're always out of, not lamb. My fault.

    2. I bet that Esperia Grill (Brighton Center) could put one together for you. Thy have roast lamb daily and make the best pork gyro in town.

      1. The Lamb sandwich at Greek Corner in Cambridge is pretty killer.

          One would have to request feta on their sandwich at the GC though.

          I've had the lamb on a number of occasions and its pretty good (sometimes salty, so feta might put it over the top). I prefer the gyro myself for the crunchy bits and a bit more flavor in the meat that doesn't get lost with the garlicy tzatziki like the lamb can.

            mnmmm those crunchy bits are to die for. I always get sad when I order the gyro at Farm Grill in Newton and I don't get any of the crunchy bits or get very little. The crunchy bits together with the juicy meat = perfection.

            I love it too!! In fact, I think I will foodler it for lunch today! :)

          3. Not exactly like your pic but Kebab House in Liberty Sq or Black Seed Cafe on Tremont both have lamb kebabs and feta on their menus. Could probably make you something that comes close.

            1. Artu in the North End does a lamb and eggplant sandwich - not sure if they will have feta, but it is a great lamb-based sandwich in its own right.

              I don't think I have seen a sandwich that looks like your photo anywhere on the East Coast. Must be Greeks from Siracusa out west.

                I'm sure Artu would make it for you, I used to have them make me a roast pork with provolone and rabe all the time when I lived in the NE

                  I live that roast lamb/pork with rabe and provolone at Artu also. The eggplant/meat is great too and they'll add some roasted peppers if you like.
