I can’t stay away from the gyros plate from Ayola. It’s partly because it’s so close to my office, but I love eating the gyro meat with topped with some humms, tzatziki and their hot sauce. Yum!

I liked this salad. It tasted bright and delicious, and it was definitely on the healthy side. The calamari were nice and tender and not rubbery. Yum!

This looked dry, gray, and boring and that’s exactly how it tasted. There wasn’t much going for this plate except that it was healthy. I’ve rather have tasty and flavorful over bland and healthy any day.

Meat gyro platter – Lazeez

Meat gyro platter - Lazeez
Lamb and beef with lettuce, tomato, red onion, tzatziki sauce, Greek pita. $13.50
Lazeez, San Francisco CA

The gyro meat tasted good, but it was really greasy. I like tender meat, but not necessarily glistening with fatty grease. They do give you plenty of it though. I would have appreciated more tzatziki for that amount of food.
