Gyro meat - mid-Wilshire area only please

LMS1108 Feb 1, 2007 01:27 PM

As a kid in suburban Chicago, you could buy gyro meat at your local Jewel. While TJs on La Brea does carry tzatziki, they don't sell the meat. Does anyone know any grocery or specialty stores in the mid-Wilshire area ONLY that sell gyro meat?

Thank you.

      The tzatzki at TJ's is gross. Just one look at the ingredients list tells you everything you need to know. It doesn't contain yougurt. Get it from Papa Cristos made fresh on premises.

        AND get your Pitas there. They get them from Chicago so they'll be what you're used to.

          How about Moishes at the Farmers Market on Third and Fairfax
