I finally made it out to Kabob International for lunch today and had the lamb gyro plate with pita and tzatziki sauce on the side. The food was fresh and flavorful and the place was casual and comfortable. I'll be going back for certain as it was well worth the drive, especially since I figured out a way to get there without getting on Germantown Parkway. Thanks go to Kembree over at Persian Pit Bull for recommending it to me.
Since I was out East in the Far East**, I decided to roll South down Germantown Parkway towards my parents house with the idea of stopping in to kick it with Aquaman and Co., when I saw all the sunflowers at Shelby Farms seemingly smiling brightly at the traffic blowing past. I had to stop and snap a couple of photos:
**I would post my Memphis map that delineates all the degrees of "out East" but I can't find where I filed it. I'll find it some other time. For right now, click on the Kabob International link above to see their location.
Well, over the past few months it seems like every time a new place opens on South Main, some other place closes. Tyiese Scarpa shoe store is closed and totally empty as the fixtures, furniture and inventory are cleared out revealing an empty store waiting for the next tenant. And even more bad news is that Power House, the contemporary art space on G.E. Patterson, is closing as well.
