Truly Mediterranean (SEA)

On an errand near the Crossroads area, I was drawn inside by two rotating vertical spits. Apparently, this place garnered great reviews in the Bay Area before setting up an outpost in bellevue. It is owned by a Jordanian man and staffed by his Thai wife and her crew (which I think caused suspicion on yelp). She told me it has been open a few months. I went for the lamb shwamera sandwhich, which included meat right off the spit, tahinia and spicy sauce, veggies, wrapped in lavash bread and griddled. At about $9 it was a little steep ($6 would be more appropriate), but it was filling and of excellent quality for this genre. Given the abysmal steam tray meats and even frozen strips employed by even the more reputable pan middle-east sandwich joints in this town, this sets a new benchmark.
