Kebab on St. Claude

First Taste: Hearty Sandwiches, First-Rate Falafel from Pizza Speakeasy Pair



I love Mediterranean food. I’ve made more midnight solo trips to Cleo’s, the CBD’s 24/7 gyro grocery, than I care to admit. I’ve trekked out to the International Market for bargain tahini sauce and big canisters of falafel seasoning.
