I found another gyro joint!
We were in Norcross and tried to go to another restaurant, but couldn't tell if it was really open or not, so we went up to the door to check--it was open, but closed in 25 minutes. What to do? Well, the easiest thing was going somewhere close by, so we looked around. What's that? Is that a gyro place?? We love gyros! Let's go!
Baba's Gyro and Kabab is a cute little restaurant which actually feels quite roomy inside. It's very clean and the staff is really friendly. The menu is what surprised me, though--there's more than just Greek! There were Persian, Italian, and Greek dishes plus salads, flatbreads, various wraps, and lots of delicious sounding things. Dave and I decided we had to get one thing we'd never had and a gyro. He ordered Cherry Polo, which is a Persian dish with cherries (duh), pistachios, almonds, carrots and chicken on top of saffron rice. I ordered the Chipotle Gyro (I can't resist anything chipotle or possibly spicy).
Verdict: fantastic! The gyro meat was really moist and the chipotle sauce was creamy and tasty, though not spicy..which works out for most people. The Cherry Polo was tasty and interesting. I'm not usually a fan of sweet/fruity things being in stuff that's savory (Hawaiian pizza=nasty), but this was lovely! The chicken was moist and the saffron rice was a perfect vehicle for all of the ingredients. I look forward to our next visit!
