I'm half Greek and love a good gyro. I never really ate them outside of Greece, however, until I discovered mamagyro on Lexington between 77th and 78th. Not only do they use all natural, fresh ingredients, but they put a couple of french fries inside their gyros - to me this is an essential element of a gyro, one that every other gyro in Manhattan seems to be missing. The chicken gyro on a whole wheat pita with mama sauce and all the fixings is just $4 and is my go to order (pictured above). The menu doesn't end there though; mamagyro also has delicious souvlaki, salads, dips (I love the spicy feta and tarama), and other Greek specialties. You've got to try it!
|OMG Baklava! They also have delicious Kourabiedes (Greek butter cookies covered in powdered sugar).|
|I love that these Greek juices line the top of the drink fridge. They transport me back to being a child in Greece.|
|I think the mama gyro logo is very cool. The store's design in general is very sleek and clean.|
