Gyros Alley Jakarta : Gourmet Greek Food

Choices. One thing Jakartans are very well spoiled with when it comes to food. With the arrival of Gyros Alley Jakarta in Panglima Polim, the list has just gotten longer but it would only mean more excitement for foodies in the city of gluttons.

Dominated with blue and white in the branding, Gyros Alley reminds me of the color palate of Santorini. The color of houses on the hillside. The color of the sky. Their world famous yoghurt. Here, the mood is imparted on the tiny details, from the Instagenic front doors to the plates and the playful mural on the walls.

Coming from the same group who brought you Casadina, food for the most part are well taken care of. Menu ranges from their signature Souvlaki to Mediterranean Fried Rice. On the latter I have to give an honorary mention here. I find it superior in both taste and size. While the dry seasoning makes the charcoal roasted meat feels desiccated on the outside, the inside is tender and flavor is beyond skin deep. The portion is also just right: fulfilling with enough space for dessert. I’d go for this one any time compared to waiting in line for a plate of overstated Nasi Goreng Kambing Kebon Sirih.

Gyro. Notice the natural chunk. Not processed meat.

Mediterranean Fried Rice. Go for lamb. The best!

Falafel with Chickpeas & Greenhorns.

I also take a personal liking to their Falafels. When dipped into the Tzaziki (sauce made of yoghurt, garlic, and cucumber puree) it creates a nice contrast of warm and cold, salty and sweet/sour. It is mostly for the adventurous palate though. I brought it home and gave my parents a try. Both found the chickpeas and greenhorns weird for their palates, while for me that was why I enjoyed it.

Kombucha + Lamb Platter

On the drinks, I’m confident their Kombucha will be likable to many more palates. If you haven’t known already, Kombucha is basically fermented tea with a lightly effervescent taste. Prepared by Tepian, this drink is very refreshing and it is also a healthier treat for those who love sweets.

Now, with so much to offer, will Gyros Alley win the blessings of Jakartans tastebuds? It has won one over here. We’ll see about the remaining ten million.

Mazel Tov!
