Calling all Greek cuisine fans…

If you’re a shawarma lover then this wrap is for you. Of Greek origin, a Gyros is a pitta bread wrapped or stuffed with grilled meat, fried potatoes, tzatziki and much more. The dish is so popular (and delicious) that September 1 is dedicated to celebrating the Greek dish.
