Zankou Chicken substitute?

Yvonne | Feb 6, 200301:42 PM

When my bf's visited me here in LA, I always take him to Zankou Chicken and he's become addicted to it. Now he's upset because he can't get his fix up in Oakland. I swear, he talks more about missing Zankou than missing me! Anyway, he's wondering if the Chowhounds know of a substitute in the Bay Area.

For those who don't know, Zankou is a fast food mini chain in the LA area. They have Armenian-style rotisserie chicken which is amazingly crispy and juicy. They serve a 1/4, 1/2, or whole chicken with hummus, pickled turnips, and pita bread. Also, they have shwarmas, falafels, etc. It's delicious and cheap. I know of Truly Med in SF but I don't think they have the rotisserie chicken. Is there anything similar in the East Bay or beyond?
