I used to love Zankou. I lived off the tarna and shawerma plates. The falafel, while certainly not the best in town have been passable. And there was always the chicken and hummus - fine stand bys. Today I had the 1/4 white plate and it was just not that great. I havent had Zankou in about 6 months and I was really looking forward to it - what a let down. The skin was great but the meat was dry and flavorless. I needed every bit of the garlic paste to get through it. If I have the option now - Ill go over to Caroussel on Hollywood blvd.
PS - anyone been to Neo Mezze in Pasadena? Going there this Saturday for "jeffro's bday blowout" and wanted to know what are the must eats . . .
