Universal Hilton -Part 2

This past Sunday we went back to the Universal Hilton for their champangne brunch. If you recall the last time we went was for Father's day and the place was a zoo. This time it was much less crowded. The volume of food was less however I think the selection was only marginally smaller. Pretty much everything was still there with the exception of the outdoor grill that had the delicious lamb chops, hamburgers, ribs and sausages. There was no roast pig, but I had the leg of lamb which was most delicious. I guess i really like lamb. If I recall, the last time I went the lamb was on the rare side with not much flavor, this time the lamb was like the equivalent of the top part of the rib eye steak or the prime rib and part brisket like what we have on Christmas. The champange service was much better. I think between the two drinkers, they had to have finished off at least a dozen glasses between them.

I think the last time I gave it a 5 out of 10 rating. I was correct, with far less crowds and noise the place rates a 7 out of 10.

if you like lamb, you should check out c&k greek deli on normandie & olympic...
they have really good greek food at the restaurant...but if you go to the deli counter, they have a lamb & feta sandwich.
it's pretty much slabs of lamb topped with slabs of feta cheese, and crammed into one of their french rolls...i think it's topped with some olive oil too, not sure.
but yeah, so simple but soooooo good!

is this the greek market/cafe in the latin-byzantine corridor?? the one that has "my big fat greek wedding" feast nights? if so, i'm seconding your recommendation. that place is goooooooodddd.... too bad i can't remember the name of it, otherwise i'd have written a review on it by now.

hey grant: are you angling to be put back on as a grubclub contributor??? if you would just post some original reviews once in awhile, you wouldn't have gotten the boot in the first place.

yea that's the place...the restaurant is called papa cristos, i think.
if you're really really into lamb, you can buy a whole lamb that is pre-seasoned and then take it home and cook it on your own spit.

i'd recommend having someone who knows what they're doing if you're going to attempt this....altho i must admit it's tempting.
