EAT // Souvla: Mission, SF

When I traveled to Greece with my brother after we graduated from college, we had this AMAZING gyro at a corner store for dirt cheap. Despite the price, it was one of the most delicious gyros I’ve ever had. I remember it was after we had come down from Acropolis and it was hot as Hades. We were covered in dirt and sweat and were HUNGRY as wolves. A quirk I noticed was they put the fries IN the gyro– still do it to this day when I get gyros. 

Fast forward to 2017.. SOUVLA.  I initially saw the Greek-inspired cup design and then was lured in by the frozen yogurt pictures because I love frozen yogurt, friends. The tart kind, not the sugar filled ones… and if you like that too, Souvla’s got your back.

Aside from the Insta-worthy interior, they have great food. A and I tried the lamb and pork shoulder gyros, which were both good, but we both preferred the lamb in the end. (Funny, because I don’t like lamb…perhaps because the taste was covered in an amazing tzatziki sauce.) We also got the Greek fries, which were a tad underseasoned, but the cut and fry of the fries were perfect.
