Greece is known for its many healthy and tasty dishes, but it also has its own signature street food. If you’ve ever wondered about the differences between two favorites, gyros vs. souvlaki, we’re here to explain the differences.
Both gyros and souvlaki are staples of modern Greek cuisine and are considered fast food items. To add to the confusion, souvlaki is used as a replacement term for gyro. This confusion is due to their resemblance, but in actuality, the word gyro means “turn,” which references the cones of meat that are cooked on a vertically rotating skewer.
The word souvlaki, however, means “spit,” which implies it is cooked over fire. Souvlaki has origins dating back to ancient Greece, with some references as far back as the Byzantine Empire (395 CE to 1453).
To clarify in modern terms, souvlaki refers to meat cooked on a stick and gyro is meat cooked on a rotating skewer.
Deliciously Different: Gyros vs. Souvlaki
The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is proud to offer both of these traditional dishes on our restaurant menu. Our Great Greek Gyros feature lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tzatziki, and feta, and come with beef/lamb or grilled chicken gyro meat. Our Traditional Gryos feature beef/lamb or grilled chicken gyro meat with tomatoes, red onions, and tzatziki. Our gyro plate features tender sliced gyro meat on pita bread served with rice pilaf, French fries, or feta fries.
We feature souvlaki in several different ways. Our skewered souvlaki comes on platters. Our grilled chicken souvlaki features two skewers of grilled chicken served with rice pilaf, French fries, or feta fries. We also offer grilled steak souvlaki, Australian lamb souvlaki, and garlic shrimp souvlaki.
Notably, we also offer both gyro kits and souvlaki skewers on our catering menu.
