Acropolis Goes Greek!

We decided to check out the lunch scene over at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Des Peres, MO. I mean, we are greek right? So it makes sense! The food is prepared by the parishioners and it is OUTSTANDING. This special occasion only happens on Fridays but it is definitely worth the wait. My personal favorite is the Dolmathes and the Gyros.

The Greek word dolmathes, or dolmades (ντολμαδες) comes from Turkish dolma, which is a general term for stuffed vegetables. Greek dolmathes, often known simply as dolmas in English, are stuffed grape leaves. Mouth currently watering.

A gyro or gyros is a Greek dish made from meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Like shawarma and tacos al pastor, it is derived from the lamb-based doner kebab. In Greece it is now most often pork, or chicken, while a mixture of beef and lamb is common in the U.S. and other countries. I swiped these definitions from Wikipedia.
