Are Gyros in Greece as good as I think they are? [moved from General Chowhounding Topics]
I remember ones where the pita was like naan, or like neopolitan pizza dough: chewy, smokey, crispy, delicious on its own. Inside tsatiki, mustard, potato (fried in olive oil), onion, tomatoes and the sliced pork that had been cooked on a charcoal tiered vertical thingy. Did I imagine it, or where they amazing?
They are amazing--but just like anywhere, you have to find the best places. ;)
I don't eat meat anymore but I'm getting hungry just remembering.
Yes, they are. I was in Greece 7 years ago, mainly on the island of Patmos, and one of my best memories was going into town in the evening for a gyro. I tried several different places, I vaguely remember my favorite. I will be back there this summer (I leave in 3 weeks) and plan to try as many gyros as possible while on the island. I will definitely write a detailed report of gyros on Patmos. Look for it in July!
