Syracuse: King David's

Today I had a fantastic lunch at King David's.  The restaurant is across the street from the Craftsman Inn, so its an easy walk, maybe 5 minutes.  Its on the left side of the shopping center past Target.  The food is Middle eastern/Greek.  It's an order at the counter, sit down at your own table operation, so you dont have to dish out for tips.

I had the Lamb Souvlaki platter, it was three pieces of marinated grilled Lamb, wrapped in a pita with  lettuce, grilled peppers, feta and Tzatziki sauce.  It was a little heavy on the sauce so I would order light on the sauce with all of their dishes.  It came on a plate with a small Greek salad and my choice of side.  I picked Hummus and it was of course, like everything else there, homemade.  As a bonus a small Falafel patty was nestled on the plate as well along with an extra pita for dipping in the hummus.  The Falafel was nice and crunchy on the outside without being greasy and creamy on the inside without being mealy. I loved what I had and devoured it like a wolf cub keeping food away from its siblings.  The next time I visit I will probably try the Falafel wrap

.  All told it was $12 with a large fountain drink.  If you wanted to be more economical, you could just get a pita sandwich and a drink and come away only spending $10.  The staff is friendly, even if they ARE Yankees fans.  This is my new favorite for the Syracuse overnight, Go there!


  1. Sorry about the crappy cell phone pics, but until i upgrade from my crackberry that's the best i can do
