Greek cuisine is a highly influenced conglomerate of Turkish, Mediterranean and Egyptian culinary concepts. People have told me to try the Baclava, The Greek Salad and the Mousaca of course but the most underrated and delicious local cuisine has to be the Gyros.
A gyro or gyros is basically a wrapped sandwich consisting of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie, (normally pork, chicken, beef, veal, lamb or mutton) or vegetarian alternatives such as feta or haloumi cheese, and usually served wrapped in pita bread with fries,tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce.
According to some sources in Wikipedia, the Middle Eastern shawarma, Mexican tacos al pastor, and Greek gyros are all derived from the Turkish döner kebab, which was invented in Bursa in the 19th century by a cook named Hadji Iskender.
For me it’s a fulfilling meal I can’t get enough of. Here’s us trying the traditional pork, chicken and vegetarian rendition (not in picture) of this legendary delicacy.
