I’m a sucker for Mediterranean food but its a little expensive to have it on a weekly basis. I was at circular road for a meeting and I googled “cheap eats at circular road”; you know, CBD and its expensive atas eateries. One of the search results brought me to Gyromania and I think I found my new greek heaven.
Gyromania is not exactly super cheap -meat plates cost ~ $18-$19, burgers ~$15 but you can get gyros for less than $10. There were 4 of us and so we ordered some dishes to share.
If you’re a fan of dips then you definitely ahve to try their dips platter. I think we ordered the 5 dips platter for ~$40+ but they do have 3 dips for $25.80. All their dips were great! but the star of the mezedes was the pita bread. It was crisp on the outside & soft and chewy inside. I swear I can eat this platter all day everyday.
Their mousaka was also super delicious! I’ve tried mousaka (baked eggplant with cheese) a couple of times and none of it tasted this good! It wasn’t too oily nor too salty; albeit just a teeny weeny bit on the expensive side. Then again, this dish feeds at least 3 people so… do your maths.
We had their chicken gyros meat plate which was hugeeeee. I honestly doubt anybody can finish it by themselves. I thought the chicken was alittle on the dry side but it was flavourful and went really well with that creamy mustard sauce.
Ok google lied. Gyromania isn’t exactly the kind of cheap weekday lunch you can have but for authentic greek food, this is pretty much affordable. I have never gone to Greece but the difficulty in communicating with the server/ chef should show some authenticity in their offerings. I swear I had no idea what he was muttering so I asked him to just order for 4 people.
I would definitely come back just for the dips alone! I finally had Greek food for the first time, after a long long while. When was the last time you had Greek food?
