Greek Shack:
Found out about Greek Shack on Yelp and I decided we should try it on our road trip and we were in Redding anyways.

It's a small shack with a few tables & chairs in the front, some tables/chairs in the back too.

Order at the front window, pay, and guy brought our food out to us.

Lamb Gyro combo $12 - gyro, hummus, and salad. It's a HUGE amount of food. If you can share then get the combo, otherwise just get the Lamb Gyro by itself! Lamb meat was really good, some slices of tomatoes, some sauce, lettuce, and pita. Hummus is a good blob amount, salad was a good greek salad w/ feta cheese, some tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, olives.

dolmas $5 - serve cold, grape leaves and stuffed with rice. Tasted ok.

Chicken gyro $8 - meat tasted off to me, I didn't like it. Skip it and get the Lamb Gyro!!

Turkish coffee - B. liked it, dark and strong, not bitter.

You can charge it.

Champa Garden: Tried out Champa Garden after seeing it on Yelp. They are related to the other Champa Garden in the Bay Area: SF, Oakland. They are cousins I found out. This place is in the UPS strip mall, Not Famous Dave's.

B. got a Chang Beer - I think he liked it.

We got 3 dishes because we had a big lunch:

Tum Ka Ga Soup - huge enough for 2-3 people to share. We liked it.

Green curry veggie and extra veggie $1.5 more- we liked it. Finished it all.

Basil fried rice -we liked it. Finished it all.

Separate bathrooms in the back. Charged it.

Champa Garden
1107 Hilltop Dr, Redding, 96003

Yaadgar Restaurant: Tried out Yaadgar Restaurant in Redding for an early dinner found on Yelp. They have Indian/Pakistani/Vegetarian dishes.

FREE hot chai - they don't offer it to everyone, you just ask for it, and get it yourself!

Tandoor chicken leg - we asked for 2 and got them, very tasty.

Garlic naan - it's got some garlic taste, hot & made fresh.

Spinach dish - came with some ginger slices. We liked it.

Okra dish - B. liked it, I'm not a fan.

Basmati rice - taste good w/ all the dishes.

Our total $31.11 before tip.
