Tabbouleh (Arabic: تبولة‎ tabūlah, ‘seasoning’) is a Levantine Arab salad traditionally made of bulgur, tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, onion and garlic, and seasoned with olive oil, and lemon juice.

The gyro (Greek γύρος ‘turn’) is made of of meat roasted on a vertical spit, served in a sandwich, called pita gyro with tomato, onion, and optional tzatziki sauce.

Hummus (Arabic: حُمُّص‎) is a Middle Eastern and Arabic food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahiniolive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. The fire hummous here at Daphne’s is a little spicy for mere mortals, but it is awesome!

For dessert, be sure to have the baklava (Ottoman Turkish باقلوا or Persian, باقلبا, possibly Persian adapted from Turkish for ‘wrap’ or ‘tie’).

Best fast food Greek in L.A., which means a lot since there are not too many Greek places within easy drive. For best value at Daphne’s, get the combo and add the bakalava dessert. 5/5 stars.
