Pizza by The Slice....Alas No

So I had to run out to my mobile home today to pay my lot-rent and cut the grass.The latter was thwarted by rain but I stopped for lunch at a new Greek Cafe on Jefferson Avenue next to the Asian Grocery near the What A Burger.

 I ordered a slice of pizza only to be told that the store did not sell pizza by the slice...one had to buy the whole pizza! The proprietor, for whom English was obviously not his first language, seemed perplexed that people kept coming in asking for slices.

I pointed out the sign that said "Pizza by the slice" and explained that that did not mean the whole pizza was pre-sliced.

So I ordered a gyro...
...which was one of the best I've ever had. The slices of gyro meat were waaay thicker than usual, the olives were fresh and the thing was spiced differently than I was accustomed to..but better.

My weight loss scheme precluded me from partaking of the baklava

The place the Greek Cafe and Food Mart is fantastic find. It's also a tobacco shop, has a hookah booth and sells hookahs. I don't smoke, but I applaud anyone with the balls to open a hookah shop in Newport News.

Next time I'm over there I'll try some of their kebabs...or I'll take home some of their pizza...I hear its pre-sliced.
