ORLANDO, Fla. — We are about to get our Greek on with a huge gyro from a brand new downtown Orlando joint.
“Everything we make in this building, we make in house” says Richard Hawkins, the Great Greek Mediterranean Grill's director of operations.
In this Chef's Kitchen, he's demoing the namesake nosh — The Great Greek Gyro. “It's pretty simple,” he says, adding that the tzatziki sauce steals the show. “(It's) yogurt based. Lavva is a very rich, very thick style of yogurt.”
Turn up the Greek music and Opa! Let's eat:
