I'm craving meatloaf style gyros and cannot find a place in Toronto that seems to serve them.
Thanks in advance!

    King Souvlaki(pape/mortimor area) sells that style, Diamond Pizza, most places that sell Gyro's sell that style besides Alexandrios or Messini's....

      Not exactly sure about what you mean by "meatloaf" style gyros? Do you mean the conical shaped mixture of lamb,beef and pork? If so,try Greektown..

        The conical style, commerically made gyros is often referred to as "meatloaf" style gyros....

        And man is it ever good. Good question, pancake!

          Ah That's what I though. Like I said, should be some good spots on the Danforth.

            I guess I have to browse around the Danfourth. So far I've had no luck except when it was The Taste of the Danfourth.
            Is King Soulvaki still open? I looked online and could not find a listing for it.
            Thanks for the help!

              Another thought, thats the type of Gyro that Mr Greek uses and its not bad, so that might be an option...

              As for King Souvlaki, not sure if its still open, havent been in a year or 2 but id imagine it would still be there. It might be called Kings Park Souvlaki, im not exactly sure.

                I'm pretty sure King Souvlaki is closed, it's been papered up for some months now.

                Though not a meatloaf style gyro, I love the biftekia at Folia, and that might satisfy the craving.

                  It wasn't King Souvlaki. It was Donair something or something donair.Sorry about my temporary brain fart. :)

              I call those the "mysteryos" because they just look like a mystery meat composite to me. I never eat that sytle and if that's all that is available, I won't eat it. I've never found a tasty example of that syle and they always appear oily. Has anyone had a really good one? I'd rather have a good piece of meat instead of something that was made at the wiener factory.

                Well if they're not your thing, they're not your thing. I don't think I'd recommend any to you as they really don't seem to appeal to you.

            Similar to gyros, I love the donairs at Halifax Donair in Milton
