A Heaping Helping of Gyros
Not to be confused with the nearby Aladdin Gyro-cery, Aladdin Falafel Corner (in the University District) is a hole-in-the-wall favorite with thrifty students and anyone who loves a juicy, heaping gyro. Nothing on the menu is over $10, and a gyro combo with soda and side (Greek salad, rice, or fries; skip the salad, because the gyro already comes loaded with greens) is about $7. The classic lamb-and-beef gyro is their specialty, but the chicken schwarma and falafel are also popular. There’s a somewhat shabby seating area that can get noisy when it’s full of students, but service is fast and friendly and they’re open late. A budget-friendly stop with generous portions that will get you back on your way quickly.
