I don’t understand why they taste so good…I can be as happy as when I eat Japanese food.

Our favorite souvlaki place is in our neighborhood. Their souvlakia are big and really tasty.

Usually we eat chicken pita gyros. Thinly sliced meat is layered vertically on a large skewer, and the meat is roasted while the skewer slowly rotates. The outside meat is shaved vertically when it becomes crispy. The shaved meat is wrapped with a pita bread along with onions, tomatoes, fried potatoes, and sauce.

Yum-yum…

    Such is the power of souvlaki….interesting fact, souvlaki is actually the kebab sticks, thats what souvlaki means, but the Athenians call the pie souvlaki because they dont like calling it gyros which is what is inside the pie.

    Also try it with mustard instead of tzatziki.

  2. Do not let your husband steer you wrong on the matter of souvlakia ! Kalamaki is a straw and it is meant for drinking frappe. Souvlaki is the one with the wooden skewer! Calling gyros souvlaki is blasphemy.
