Greek souvlaki

Souvlaki, the Greek version of kebap. Notably this greek delicatessen comes with authentic "Tzatziki" sauce, and is all wrapped and ready to eat easily by hand, which contributes to the Souvlaki being the fast-food of choice for Greeks.


A typical Souvlaki is made from pork, beef or chicken. The beef is in the form of "kofte", pork and chicken comes either in shavings or kebap.


Typical ingredients of the Souvlaki, are fresh sliced tomatoes, fresh onion (sliced, not choped), and tzatziki.


Other variations include french fries, paprika or even mayonnaise (modern) and mustard.


The Souvlaki is part of the Greek culture and it's a must try. This delicious street food can be found in abundance everywhere in Greece, but make sure you choose where to eat it carefully - always recommend you ask someone local where a good souvlaki can be found.
