Dish of the Week: Greek Souvlaki's gyro
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2008, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

It's a complete, self-contained meal. The hot pita ($4.75) pillows strips of beef and lamb. Granted this meat isn't sliced from an actual leg roasting on a spit -- the modern, fast-food version relies on minced beef and lamb, seasoned and compressed into a cone that's rotisseried and sliced to order -- but for some mysterious and blessed reason, it does the trick, especially with bites of hot crunchy French fries. The effect is cornucopia-like when it comes out of the short order kitchen topped with tomato, onion and a choice of red (tomato-based) or white sauce (yogurt-based). Your pita runneth over.

Greek Souvlaki is at 404 E. 300 South, Salt Lake City; 801-322-2062. Hours are Monday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
