After checking out the California Academy of Science and walking around Stow Lake and up Strawberry hill in Golden Gate Park; B, N & I were starving! So when we saw Park Gyros a block away from the park, it was a no brainer.
There is a great picture menu (which helped because we were so indecisive) and great array of different kebabs.
Rotating big chunks meat!
We decided, ordered & paid – sat down and the food was brought to us.:
Chicken kebab plate $11.65
The kebab was delicious! Meat was marinated right through with a range of spices, then grilled (on order) perfectly – it was very moist (eventhough it was white meat) and had a nice smoky flavour from the grill.
I wish it came with more pita – the pita was also warmed on the grill and was nice & soft on the inside with a light crisp from the grill. Rice was ok, maybe a little too gummy for me but had nice flavour. Veggies aren’t my thing but B polished it off.
Lamb & Beef gyros wrap $6.95
Really good gyro, generous amounts of lamb & beef with a nice sauce and vegetables. I can’t tell if it was the lamb or beef, but one of the meats were actually a little too grainy for my liking. But overall – it was a good gyro with great seasoning & flavour.
Total damage – $25 (including drinks & tax)
Personal rating – 3.5 out of 5 (Very good)
The food is great, selection is great, prices are reasonable and service was great. The kebabs were grilled as we ordered them so they tasted fresh & hot. The guy at the counter was really nice and patient (it took us forever to decide) and he even made the effort to ask us how the food was.
