No Visit to Chicago would even come CLOSE to being complete without a visit to Grrek town and my Favorite ( and yes I have eaten at them all) Greek Restuarant - The Greek Islands. OPAS! I reccomend the Osso Bucco...but quite honestly I have eaten EVERYTHING on the menu.
Yes, you can make authentic gyros at home - the texture and flavor of this meat is as good as you get in a good Greek restaurant, without the traditional rotating spit.. but this is just the recipe and technique for making the meat, for Im assuming you know the drill on making the classic gyro sandwich - stuff the meat in a grilled pita with sliced tomatoes, onions and tzaziki sauce.. Enjoy!
