Cafe Istanbul has every possible Middle Eastern grocery you could want. They carry Bulgarian Feta Cheese which is the best. Lunch there is excellent!

Very friendly establishment…best Feta Cheese (Bulgarian) and fresh Pita bread. Go early in the week to purchase the Pita before it is gone.

I ordered gyro platter. It came with greek salad which was delicious, yellow rice that was fluffy and good but the gyro lacks the strong taste of a gyro (those that I had in NYC) . It also came with a pc. of pita bread. The grocery is fun to roam around, there are lots of imported products without any english translation which seems interesting. I will come back and ask for suggestions of a better dish. The price is affordable, $11 including tip. They are open on Sundays unlike what the website says. They are open until 8PM from Mon-Sat; 6 pm on Sundays.
