For some reason it's almost impossible to find an awesome gyro in Manhattan. There are a ton of places that claim to have one but usually I end up with some kind of street meat grease bomb instead of the perfectly spiced, meaty sandwich I can get out in Queens (love you always Avli). But now finally I've found one that's a contender...the Chicken Gyro from Amali Mou.
Located inside the brand new Urbanspace Vanderbilt simply look for the insanely long line at lunch time (Delaney Chicken) and instead hop in line right next door at Amali Mou. They offer three different gyros and two salads along with an array of sides. My go-to is the Chicken Gyro with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onion and two of my favorite things in the world tzatziki sauce and french fries.
