Have you tried Gyros (Greek dish)?

Germany
October 13, 2021 2:32am CST
Hello Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to all my dear mylotters I woke up in a light sunny and cold weather. I had a great morning walk and also enjoyed my dancing exercise Today, I will not be cooking anything because my husband told me that he will bring Gyros for dinner. Gyros is a greek dish but the meat we will be having is from chicken with garlic sauce. I like it so much but can`t have it all the time. The seasoning of Gyros is really good. I only know that it is salty with some kind of herbs in it which makes it tasty. It is like shawarma but not sweet How about you my dear mylotters? Have you tried Gyros (Greek dish)? What are you having for today? I hope you can share it with me here Have a great day and Happy mylotting Photo: google

Gyros are called Doner Kebab here. I think that this style of cooking (sliced meat seasoned and packed onto a large spit and grilled on a vertical grill) was invented in Turkey and imported to Greece, The Greek name symply means 'turned' or 'turning' (we have 'gyrate' and 'gyroscope' and other words with 'gyr-' in English). I don't think that I have ever had Chicken Gyro. Ours are usually made with lamb. They are usually served with a salad and sauces in a kebab or pitta and are a popular street food here, often served from a van which is parked at the roadside. The reason why we know them by the Turkish name rather than the Greek is that the British occupied Cyprus during the War and many Turks from there were able to emigrate to England when disputes between the Greek and the Turkish elements in the country made it difficult for them.

Wow! You know a lot about this. Thank you for sharing this information. They also serve pork Gyros here but I don`t know if there is a lamb. They change the meat here I think because most people here love chicken or beef here

@m_audrey6788 Lamb doesn't seem to be as popular in other places. It's used a lot in the Middle East and India, of course, mainly because of the restrictions on pork (Islam and Judaism) and beef (Hinduism). It's apparently not as common in the US as it is here in the UK. It's a fairly expensive meat (compared to chicken and pork, for example) but very tender and delicious.

I have no idea how much it here but I think it is reasonable because meat prices gone up. We don`t buy it all the time. Thank you

First time I've heard of gyros. If it's like shawarma, I could eat and enjoy the dish at the same time.

I’ve had them on trips to San Francisco. I had them once and loved them, so had them again on our next trip. The Greek restaurants here don’t serve them. No idea why not.

Yes I have! When I was in college we had a Greek eatery nearby I would go there for a gyro stuffed with lamb, lettuce and a sauce which was really good. We would watch the guy cut the pieces off a rotating stand where the meat was mounted.
