A few years ago I had a two-week bout of Food Obsessive Compulsive Disorder where all I could think about was Greek food. I don't even know why; something in my subconscious tells me it was some tzatziki that I had one day at work at a place that I can't even remember. I thought it may have been because of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but I think this episode of FOCD came even before that movie came out.

At that time, I was living in the Koreatown area, and though I knew it was a diverse area, I was nevertheless surprised to learn that there was such a thing as the Byzantine-Latino Quarter just a hop, skip, and jump away. Home to the giant Greek Orthodox Cathedral, it's also home to Papa Cristo's, the Greek restaurant that I fed my FOCD with back then. For a period of two weeks, I ate at Papa Cristo's almost every other day, and I think I was all Greeked out, 'cause I haven't been back for a few years, that is, until the other day.

It was exactly as I had remembered it, the air filled with the heavy scent of spices as we entered through the back storeroom of C&K Importing, the attached Greek market. Walking through a room filled with a myriad of Greek and other wines, a deli counter filled with meats, cheeses and breads that I have yet to explore, and other treats of the Hellenic kind, we hung a quick left at the front of the store and ended up at a place that was all too familiar. We ordered our lunches from Papa Cristo's order counter, took our plastic number, and walked back across the front of C&K Importing over to Papa Cristo's dining room.
