Birthday Lunch

Mezes
As I said yesterday I took Mac out for lunch for his birthday, which is today, and we went to Troy, a Mediterranean restaurant over in Savannah.  It was very good, the service was excellent and the food was very authentic.
Gyro Plate
We started with a plate of Mezes that included Hummus, Stuffed Grape Leaves,  Baba Ganush, and that's spelled correctly regardless of what Blogger thinks, and Pita bread.  It was all good, particularly the Baba  Ganush which is pureed egg plant.  As you can see from the picture we had half eaten it before I remember to take a picture of it.
For entree I had a Gyro plate that came with a salad and a fish soup, I gave that to Mac although it was quite tasty. It had rice with it and an interesting veggie dish, carrots, squash and celery julienned and steamed, very tasty.  Unfortunately I was stuffed by the time my entree got there and I brought most of it home.
Mac had the Lamb Shank he'd been craving and he said it was delicious.  It came with the same veggies and garlic potatoes.  But again, way too much food, and most of it got taken home.
We really enjoyed the food and we'll be going back again.  About the only negative thing I would say about it is that it sits in a strip mall and the view is of passing traffic, they should just pull the curtains.
