Popular Greek-Cypriot mezze restaurant Halloumi is widening its net this month and bringing much more of its tasty Greek grub to Glasgow with the opening of a new Greek restaurant in the West End. Named after the tasty Greek dish, Gyros is a new ‘grab and go’ style diner set to offer ‘a culinary trip to Greece’s boldest flavours’.
Opening its doors from April 13 at the former Martha’s Deli on Byres Road, Gyros promises ‘reimagined Greek street food that combines a modern taste with traditional Greek flavours’. The menu will include an authentic Gyros selection that will be freshly and lovingly prepared to order right in front of you, for a big hit of taste and flavour.
General Manager, Andrew Kangulu, said: “Customers to our fast casual-dining experience will be treated to delicious flavours of modern Greek street food, inspired by the casual Gyros venues that are found throughout Greece. The Gyros team will use time-honoured cooking methods, familiar recipes and quality produce.”
The menu will include influences and flavours from the wider Mediterranean, as well as being a showcase of the vibrant modern Greek food scene that has emerged over the last decade. Chicken, pork, lamb, meatball, king prawn as well as plant based alternative gyros and souvlaki are at the heart of the menu. At Gyros, Glasgow diners can also get stuck into the likes of falafel, a Greek pizza known as skepasti, halloumi loaded fries, pittas and dips.
And it’s not just the food that will be fresh as the interior of Gyros will also be decked out in classic Greek colours, blue and white, bringing Mediterranean vibes to Glasgow. The diner will offer space for up to 14 customers to sit-in and customers will also be able to order for delivery or collection from the restaurant.
To celebrate the official opening, Gyros is offering a free Gyros to the first 100 customers through the doors on Wednesday, April 13th, with options for both meat lovers and vegetarians. Doors will open at 12pm, with a queue starting at 11:30am, and it will be first come, first served for a free bite.
Gyros will open weekly 7 days a week; Sunday – Thursday from 12pm – 11pm and 12pm – Midnight every Friday and Saturday. Visit the Gyros website
