One of the oldest Mediterranean sandwiches is the gyro. It is named after the rotisserie motor seen in many food trucks and restaurants. Originally, the Greeks, who would skewer the meat onto long knives and cook it over an open fire, created gyros. Some people have likened it to the döner kebabs of Turkey or the shawarma of the Middle East. The difference between these sandwiches is that a gyro is created from a minced loaf, rather than a prepared slab of meat. So if you’re looking for a delicious meal with some history thrown in for good measure, why not consider trying a pita pocket, wrap, or gyro sandwich?
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when ordering platters of premade Mediterranean-style pita pockets, wraps and gyro sandwiches is not paying enough attention to their official “eat time.” Any wet ingredients — like sauces, lettuce, or tomatoes — can make the pita soggy if they are left sitting for too long.
Most sandwiches, wraps, and gyros that are prepared on a pita cannot be cut in half! If they are cut in half, they would fall apart! Only offerings that are wrapped in tortillas are able to be cut in half.
Tzatziki (cucumber yogurt sauce) is a popular spread for Greek sandwiches but it is not vegan. If the restaurant offers it, tahini is a good vegan and gluten-free alternative.
Can I make a sandwich or wrap gluten-free?
Some restaurants may have a gluten-free bread or wrap option but most will not. If that is the case, you can order a salad or rice bowl option. For buffet-style menus, the bowls will be packaged individually to prevent cross-contamination.
What goes well with pre-made Mediterranean-style pita pockets, wraps and gyro sandwiches?
Sides like hummus, Greek salad and spinach pie are always popular with pita pocket, wrap and gyro sandwich orders! Souvlaki skewers can make a great addition as well!
How many pita pockets, wraps or gyro sandwiches are recommended per person?
One sandwich should be enough for each member of your team but keep in mind that wraps and sandwich menus are usually cheaper than Mediterranean plate menus because there is generally less protein.
Are all sides vegan/vegetarian?
Most sides will be suitable for vegans and vegetarians but it is important to pay attention to the (V) or (VG) designations on each item. For Mediterranean dishes it is important to note whether a dish is served with tzatziki, a popular cucumber yogurt sauce, as it is not vegan.
