Taste of the Danforth is back in Toronto and we’ve never been so hungry! Toronto’s amazing annual event celebrating its huge Greek culture is now in its 24th year and will bring you a weekend of joy in true Greek fashion including food and entertainment. To show our love for all of our beautiful Greek friends, we’re paying homage to the best Greek invention ever: gyros. Here’s where to get the best Gyros in your city. Get in our mouths now.
Literally, who is this Greek Goddess who created such yoghurty goodness? We can’t be sure. The freshness of the cucumber is the essence of tzatziki. perfect for serving as a mezze on any occasion. You can make it at home to eat on the patio/ when Netflix-ing… alone. Dill, lemon juice, cucumber, yogurt, garlic, mint, OPA!
Oh My Gyro is definitely worth a bite — it’s owned by a lovely family who make superb tzatziki and they’re a big hit with the regulars, which you will undoubtedly become if you eat here.
That meat though
Let’s be real, we’re doing this for the meat. Sure, the sauce brings something special and the flatbread is essential in the maintenance of the gyro, but the star of the show is definitely the carved meat.
Traditionally served with pork or chicken, we live in a world of beautiful integration and fusion, so you’ll find beef and lamb adaptations all over the place Toronto folks should check out Greek & Co, who have a few branches to pick up or order from. They also tuck fries inside the gyro because they love us a lot.
Wrap us up, we’re done
As noted above, the gyro is no such thing without its homely casing. The flatbread that ties everything together: meat, salad, fries… it’s nothing without the distinctive flatbread that doesn’t ever seem to be as impressive as when it holds together all that Greek goodness. For this bread, we thank Demeter, the Greek Goddess of grain and harvest. Demeter love.
