Good traditions, authenticity and quality – that’s what The Fat Greek is all about. That’s also why our meats and mushrooms are prepared over a charcoal grill, in order to get the exact same flavor as 150 years ago, back when food as prepared over the fire.
The marinades we use for our authentic Gyros with charcoal grilled chicken, pork or mushrooms, are made from our Greek Chef Dimitri’s grandfather’s recipes, that have been perfected through many years, after being passed down from generation to generation.
Our authentic flatbread is handmade by a local artisan’s bakery in Athens, that have been family run for centuries. They still bake their flatbread using the same recipe and method as many hundred years ago – actually all the way back to year 950. And Dimitri’s grandfather used the exact same bakery back when he was making his Gyros.
The original version of Gyros is made with pork, and for that one we use the most savory meat from the pork . The meat is very similar to the Japanese Wagyu beef, where the meat is highly saturated with marbling between the fibers, which ensures a phenomenal flavor.
