Lamb Gyro Platter (Special)

Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

The lamb gyro platter does not appear on the menu. Its absence is explained by the fact that chef-owner Orhan Yegen does not want to serve the dish unless fresh ingredients are available to prepare it. Thin slices of lamb gyro are served over cubes of sautéed pita bread and dressed with yogurt and tomato sauce. There’s something that truly hits the spot about this dish — it’s hearty and tasty, not heavy, but truly delightful. The combination of tender and fatty gyro meat, garlicky yogurt and bread was so flavorful it quickly disappeared. Part of what caught me by surprise was the texture of the bread. The outside is crunchy, but the inside is soft and chewy. Drenched in yogurt, the bread tastes heavily of garlic and is rather addictive.
