This has been one crazy weekend! I need a break from my break so, allow me to turn the keys over for my very first guest post. Enjoy:-)

I was in the mood for a different style of dining the other day, and I definitely got it. I left my house for dinner, feeding the pets and setting my home security alarm, when I realized that I wasn't in the mood for fried food. If you want to learn more about the great home security alarm I just got, by the way, click here. So I had to find something different. Therefore, I decided to go to Aya's Cafe, a Mediterranean restaurant in my hometown of Lambertville that I had heard a lot about but had never tried. This was an excellent choice.
The inside of the restaurant was the first thing that struck me. The restaurant is in a very odd residential location, and I nearly missed it the first time I drove by because I thought it was a house. However, this made for an excellent atmosphere. The fact that the kitchen was open and the chefs were joking with their (obviously returning) customers while they cooked was even better. The wait staff was similarly friendly and attentive The only thing that annoyed me about the atmosphere was the loud Indian music playing in the background.
The appetizer that I ordered was a spinach "pitza" (or pita pizza). This was very good, though the feta cheese that was on it made it a little bit too salty. For dinner I ordered a Gyro plate with a mix of steak and lamb. This was incredible and I would would definitely go back to the restaurant just for that. The meat was perfectly cooked and seasoned and warm enough that it had obviously been cooked fresh. I will be returning to Aya's Cafe soon.
