One thing that cannot be had in Texas, or pretty much anywhere west of the Mississippi is great Greek food. My BMW riding buddy Ingrid and I went to the Greek Islands on 22nd St in Lombard (same owners as the one on Halsted & Adams). I had Perfect butterfly lamb chops, with Greek potatoes. We had Saginaki complete with Whooopa! for an appetizer, and then my favorite Greek desert, fresh yogurt with honey and walnuts. Now, I can go back to Texas!
