    Iwont forget that or that gyro
    we have a Greek place 5 min away from my work. I go there to get a greek salad for lunch and come back with a Gyro and fries every time, and when my co worker asks "what happen to the salad" I say "this Gyro self Identifies as a salad"

    I'm getting there Peanut and FL.
    I ate a little lamb for lunch today and might risk a little Port and Lemon a couple of hours before midnight to toast the new year.
    My bro is out in Israel working and they're two hours before us, so I thought I'd celebrate an Israeli new year this time so I can go to bed at 10!

    This confuses me.

    Googling it, Kebabs are generally skewers in the definition (how I know them)... but then the pictures to the right are all with flatbread, more like a Gyro generally is. lol.

    I love me some Gyro. I haven't found a good place to get them around here, but I'm sure one exists. Sometimes I get the fast food version at Arbys. It's not super authentic, to be sure, but it's close enough to scratch the itch for me.

    You are correct, gyro meat is a is a seasoned mixture (sometimes of differing meats) that you often see layered in a code cooking in a vertical broiler but they can also be on horizontal spits too. The outside is cooked and sliced off in thin strips.

    Kebabs a most often whole pieces of meat though they can also be minced, generally grilled on skewers.

    I think it really comes down to how they are cooked, though with kebabs you are free to simultaneously cook veggies or fruit along with the meat if you choose - skewers or not. Gyro comes from the Greek "to turn", the Turkish "shish" or sword "kebab" "to fry, roast, char, burn"

    In Turkey we had lots of kebabs and would often eat them with flat bread. (drooling....)

    Lunch anyone?

    Turkey? You've been to some interesting places.

    You get both types in our Kebab shop - what you describe as the Gyro sounds like the Doner Kebab in that Shop, or "Elephant meat", because it looks like an Elephant leg! That meat is sliced and eaten in a flat bread, same as the Shish and Chicken (chunks) they have there.
    I'll also have skewered kebabs on the barbecue at times.
    I'm hungry!
