I’ve always wondered about this, but I’ve never thought to ask what it’s called…until right now I wanted to explain it to a friend and I’m pissed at myself I have no idea. lol.
But you know when you go to like a greek restaurant…or perhaps an indian restaurant and they have that huge hunk of meat turning on a vertical stick, and they cut it off to put in the dishes..what is that called?

Gyro? Is that what you are referring to?

It’s called Doner Kebab. Usually from middle eastern countries. It’s so delicious! Find it on wikipedia if you want to read the background 🙂

Doner Kebab in general… coming from the Middle East / Mediterrean regions (believed to have originated in Turkey)
Wikipedia – Doner Kebab = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doner_kebab
Gyro for Greek Cuisine…
Wikipedia – Gyro = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyro_(food)
And Shawarma for the Arabic / Lebanese Cuisine…
Wikipedia – Shwarma = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawarma
In each case the basic idea is the same, but the meats used, and seasonings can be diffferent, as well as the actual presentation in the finished sandwiches.
Yum… I am now officially hungry !!
