Like Saaghi, Go Go Gyro (GGG) turned out to be such a pleasant surprise. I sure was excited as this was going to be my first rendezvous with Greek cuisine.
The tiny space and a bit worn look of the eatery almost fooled me into disappointment. Luckily, the food made up for it.
We ordered a Chicken Gyro (A gyro is a greek wrap of pita bread, usually, and onions, tomatoes, meat and tzatziki sauce) and Chicken Pesto Panini ($6.95 each). And because we were so starved, we really hoped the food would good. We waited for the food (which took a long time to arrive) in their patio. Simply done in metal tables, flowers and fairy lights, the patio works as a good waiting-cum-eating area. I would recommend eating outside is the weather is suitable. Not that the patio overlooks any pretty scenery; it is just serene.
The food was worth the wait. We gobbled up our wraps in silence, totally approving each bite. The gyros were warm, fresh and wholesome; the meat succulent and sauces flavoursome.
If the quantity of the wrap disappoints you, go in for a Bakhlava ($4). Or one of their dips ($5 each) with a side.
I would love to try the Greek specialities mentioned on their menu (ranging from $4.50 to $5.75).
Go Go Gyro is located on a quiet portion of El Camino Real in Los Altos. Their lazy Facebook page and weary interiors explain that GGG needs some attention and enhancement. They need to get noticed by more people because they are good, believe me. I would like to see them sustain and do well because I enjoyed their food a lot!
Would I visit them again? Definitely!
