The penultimate Seattle post. You guys are going to love the last one. Yes, possibly even more than this amazing Greek place.
Two words for you today, muffins: vegan kebabs.

Good Greek places are hard to find. Greasy street vendor or fast food Greek places are much easier, but we don't care about those. Puh. Leeze. I'd like to eat something that doesn't give my entire body an oil stain, thanks.
Lola has mid-range prices, but you're going to laugh when I tell you how much Mom's Ginger Beer was: $1,000,000.
Just kidding. It was $6.75. For a single non-alcoholic drink. Seriously. Well, it was locally made with cane sugar, and high on lemon and ginger flavor. Tasted light and refreshing. But it was still practically seven bucks. Which is practically a million bucks.
It's Greek to Me, I picked up on the faint beany taste here. Lola's is a bit less garlicky as well. I guess people who frequent fancy downtown Seattle restaurants inside hotel buildings don't like monster garlic breath for some reason. Wusses.
Because this was the last meal I had with Mom in Seattle, I'd like to take this opportunity to say:
You're the best Mom. And thanks for instilling a love for travel deep in my core at a young age. It has grown into what some would call a scary soul-eating compulsion, but meh! Whatever blows your skirt up. Love you, Mom!
* One of these days I'll be able to admit I like mushrooms and that I chose to eat a portobella steak at my own wedding. Because 200 of my nearest and dearest didn't see me eating it. Shh.
