My First Greek Food at Gyros Alley

Never tried Greek food since it’s kinda rare to find one before so one day after office hours, me and a friend jump into Greek restaurant, Gyros Alley, she visited this place back then and now returning back again since she loves Greek food. The place located at Panglima Polim area which is good and aligned our way back home. The restaurant seem petite and pretty from the outside with nice blue door, looking stand out and some greenies to complete it.

There are 2 level of the building and we went upstairs and sit there. The walls are full with frame about Greece and there are blue paintings on the other side of wall. They also have terrace for smoking area on the 2nd floor. I notice the wastafel in front of toilet is so unique, bicycle as the base for wastafel.

Gyros is greek style tender lamb or chicken fillet that has been marinated for 42 hours, stack in horizontal charcoal spit roasted to perfection.

What did we ordered for that night?

Gyros Platter – Falafel (IDR55k)
Falafel is a deep-fried ball made from ground chickpeas and it is a common dish eaten throughout  Middle East. Our falafel came into our table, served on the top of greek salad, tzaziki sauce on the middle as a dip and special chili sauce. Tzaziki sauce made from strained yogurt, usually sheep or goat milk, mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, red wine vinegar and sometimes dill. I love the taste of this Greek salad, the texture like thousand island mayonnaise that you always can find anywhere.

Gyros Souvlaki – Lamb (IDR62k)
Talking about Greek food, Lamb should be your choice although there are 3 options for Souvlaki such as Lamb, Chicken and Falafel but I am going with Lamb. Souvlaki is like Kebab dish so I’m guessing this is not really my first time eating Greek food because I ate Kebab many times before, haha :p It’s Mediterranean food in general though so you won’t  miss Kebab for sure. They put Gyros with sliced lamb, tomato, onions, lettuce, tzaziki sauce and rolled into a pita bread. They have big portion, please take note of that :D

Garlic Spaghetti – Lamb (IDR60k)
The portion came out quite big with nice presentation. It is a spaghetti toss with Garlic oil, zucchini, tomato and mushrooms topped with the lamb. Hmm..since we are in the Greek restaurant so lamb is main topic here, even the spaghetti that we ordered are full with sliced lamb meat, taste good and I think I would order it again, different with usual pasta you ate like everywhere because it’s Greek style.

For the coffee, they collaborated with Tanamera. I think I will come back again, to get another coffee and also trying some desserts. So, have you tried Greek food before? You might get your Greek food here :)
