Well I was intending on going to Noodles at the Monmouth Mall however they are no-more, so into the food court we went. It’s been awhile since I’ve been there and there has been some turn over, salad works-Nathan’s-and whatever was the Gyro Chef are all gone. BK-Pizza-ChikFla-2 Asian-Cajun Chick and the Gyro place now make up the food court. (Nathan location still vacant)
Anyway I decided to try the Gyro Chef since we are all into the local Greek scenes lately and see if the mall adds to our already impressive line up. In a word; No, it doesn’t.
I tried to get a lamb/beef Gyro in the typical pita type bread, instead they only offer a wrap or platter. I chose the platter because it was served on a pita type bread. Well it wasn’t a pita, it was more or tortilla like a burrito and the platter was served with rice. I believe they use the same for the “wrap” as well.
Anyway I ate a little then wrapped it up like a giant Greek burrito and ate it that way. I wasn’t terribly impressed however I will say the meat was VERY flavorful and had a very distinctive lamb flavor. While the tzatziki sauce was very weak and the rice threw things off the meat was truly exceptional.
I would try it again as a wrap but I can’t suggest going out of your way to try this instead of Greek Eats or The Greek Spot. If your in the mall and are in the mood it’s there for a try!
