With Greek music over the speakers, lively chatter, and clinking glasses, you’d almost believe you were in Santorini rather than a Kahala strip-mall parking lot. But who cares when the food is this good and affordable? Get the souvlaki, either with lamb or fresh local fish. You might want to start with the taramasalata, a fish roe spread, and definitely finish with a slice of baklava. Nothing fancy here, but it’s always delicious. Tip: Olive Tree is BYOB. If you forget to bring a bottle, you can pick up one next door at Oliver.
