More Greek Than You’d Think

“One of the axioms of eating in the LA area is that there are more Greek places than you think there are,” says Das Ubergeek. His latest Greek find: Greek Garden Grill.

The best thing there is the moussaka. “Really rich ground lamb (hand-made, according to the lady behind the counter) and tomato sauce, absolutely perfectly baked eggplant, and a layer of breadcrumbs that turn into this amazing, almost masa-para-tamales-like layer,” describes Das Ubergeek.

Greek salad is rich with cream and moderately salty feta; gyros feature thickly cut meat with crisp, crackling edges and creamy, garlicky tzatziki. Melitzanosalata (eggplant salad) is “slightly smoky, a bit oily, garlicky enough,” says Das Ubergeek. And avgolemono—chicken, rice, and lemon soup—is “appropriately lemony, quite velvety, and with big chunks of tender chicken breast in it.”
