Often, we find ourselves tired of the same old go-to locations for lunch. Thus, we end up in a vicious circle of online searching for “lunch near me.” A search that leads one to endless pizza and sub shops. Yet, if you look just a bit further, the ultimate sandwich appears – the gyro. You’ve heard of it, you’ve wondered about it, but what exactly is a gyro?
Everything you’ve ever wondered about the Greek gyro
Let’s start by saying a gyro is not a gyro unless it’s a traditional Greek gyro. How can you tell? Well, a traditional gyro is generally made from chicken, beef, or lamb. Regardless of the protein, we rotisserie the meat to juicy tenderness full of unique and distinct flavors. No, not salt and pepper. Flavors that will have your mouth watering.
Greek meat seasonings vary but typically include oregano, rosemary, thyme, and, often, cumin. The combination of spices in conjunction with the slow cook process leaves you with nothing less than perfection. Well, that is if the meat is properly sliced! The only way to achieve the results your taste buds crave is to thinly slice your protein and serve it on flatbread. No bulky sub rolls here.
With homemade flatbread, one is empowered to truly savor the flavors of the protein – without competing over starchy bread. Instead, you’ll enjoy the protein and the fixings. With our famous tzatziki and toppings like lettuce, tomato, and onions, we promise you’ll be coming back time and again.
