G is for Gyros……
One of my favourite Greek fast foods is a Gyros.
A Gyros is made of meat cooked on a vertical spit, either lamb, chicken or pork. It is wrapped in a pitta flatbread with onion, tomato and tzatziki sauce. If you have it as a takeaway, it will be wrapped in greaseproof paper, and you can eat it with your fingers. They are very cheap, just a couple of euros.
‘Gyros’ means ‘turn’ – representing the turning of the rotisserie. You can find these fast food outlets in most Greek towns. Have you ever had a Gyros?
Here’s a recipe to make your own at home.
