Let’s try this again…
Glad to see that Buddy broke out the good flannel for you.
Damn right! No stains, holes, or fraying; first class all the way.
It was indeed a fine lunch. Maybe not the best way to say goodbye (for now) to dining out in the time of Covid-19, but pretty good, all in all. As David says, the Chicken, although grilled and not fried, was very good. You can order it “BBQ” or Greek style. Assuming “BBQ” just means it’s slathered in sauce and not actually smoked, we opted for the nicely seasoned Greek style. Confirming David’s assessment, it was beautifully cooked; nice crispy skin with a hint of tang from an olive oil and lemon baste, covering tender, juicy, flavorful meat inside.
The standard issue Gyros were acceptable but nothing special. There’s a growing movement in the Chicago area toward the more authentic Pork Gyros typically found in Greece. Made from raw hunks of seasoned pork, stacked and cooked on a vertical spit, this more traditional, yet lesser known version, is delicious, and once tried, highly preferred. Windy City Gyros serves the more widely known preformed cone mixture of beef and lamb.
Hoosier Mama is always a winner, so maybe that was the best way to go out before the virus imposed restaurant moratorium went into effect.
Thanks to David for giving me a reason to bust out of the cabin. I’m hoping this modern plague will be gotten under control soon so we can all see each other again.
