Interesting Facts About Gyros
- Gyro is derived from the Greek word “gheereezo,” which means “to turn” or “revolution,” and it is because of the process of how the meat was traditionally cooked.
- Grilling a vertical spit of stacked meat slices and cutting it off as it cooks was developed in Bursa by Turks in the 19th century Ottoman Empire, and called doner kebab. It was then introduced in Athens by immigrants from Anatolia and the Middle East during the World War II. Doner kebab made with lamb or pork later became known as ‘gyros’
- There is actually a National Gyro Day and it is September 1st.
- The largest Gyros weighs 4,022 kg , and was achieved by Sami Eid, Cypriot Lebanese restaurateur who lives in Limassol Cyprus, in 2009.
