Souvlaki Gyromania – The Authentic Greek Food
Fancy a place you’d like to PIG OUT over the week?
Studies have proven that MEDITTARANIAN CUISINE (GREEK FOOD) has the potential to lower the risk of you being afflicted with Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol. It can also increase your life span and lower the chances of weight gain.
We’ve singled out Souvlaki Gyromania JUST FOR YOU MEAT LOVERS OUT THERE!
I know that Greek food should be healthy but my actual experience with their dishes created a huge disconnect between what I knew and reality.
Every bite I took, though incredibly tasty, felt heavy and sinful. I found myself constantly doing a mental note to run a couple of extra miles over the course of the week.
Meat Platter for 4 persons, $156.80
(4 pcs lamb chops, 4 pcs Salonika beef soutzoukaki, 4 pcs Salonika chicken soutzoukaki, chicken gyro, pork gyro, fried potatoes , pita bread, tzatziki, melitzanosalata, tyrokafteri)
Them Greeks be crazy. There were 6 of us (all guys) and everyone felt like they couldn’t walk after the meal even though it was supposedly for 4 people. We’re talking huge portions here so the hefty price tag is justifiable.
They served the pita bread with tzatziki (strained greek yoghurt), melitzanosalata (spicy eggplant), tyrokafteri (feta cheese) dips. I really liked the yoghurt and cheese dips but it’s so sinful. OMG. Not to mention, there’s free flow pita bread so go crazy! But don’t leave any wastage, that’s not nice.
As this meat platter is a combination of different meat dishes in the menu, the one thing that stood out was definitely the lamp chops. I’ve NEVER IN MY LIFE had lamb so tender and juicy before.
Lamb is a really flavorful and strong meat. If not done properly, it can have a rather “gamey” after taste in your mouth. At Souvlaki Gyromania, the lamb is perfect.
The other meats were decent but paled in comparison to the lamb.
Imagine having a big group of guests to host over the week and you’re all out to impress. Souvlaki Gyromania will be your best bet to make a lasting impression. The food’s great, the ambience is perfect for sharing a meal and engaging in casual conversation with one another and everyone goes home full and content.
If you’re driving, park a good distance away so you can take a slow stroll back to the car for digestion purposes.
The lunch crowd can be a little overwhelming at times. So make your reservations ASAP.
Unfortunately they don’t accept reservations through Chope or Hungry Go Where, so just give them digits a ring. They’re extremely friendly and accommodating.
