Fat Greek( :-( ) and La Habana Cuban Rest.(??) on Oahu

Joebob | Jan 28, 2010 04:09 PM

Due to the need for an auto oil change, found myself ordering takeout from The Fat Greek. I can honestly say it was the worst Greek food I've ever had. The dolmathes had some kind of brown rice in them that was a taste killer. The gyro meat looked and tasted like burned meatloaf chunks. Everywhere else in America that I've been uses the gigantic beef and lamb cylinder supplied by Athenos foods and a vertical grill to produce an acceptable, if rather standardized gyro. Does this system occur at any rest. in Oahu? I long for a REAL gyro!

Another question: after ordering and paying at the Fat Greek, I noticed La Habana next door. Has anyone been? The prices are kind of high for a hole in the wall with an open-air "patio"(entrees $8-16), but I put this down to them just starting up. Though the menu was limited, some dish descriptions sounded interesting. Can anyone provide any info. on La Habana? Or anyone willing to try it and report?
