It doesn't sound appetizing, but it's a grilled corn tortilla filled with cheese, meat, and/ or beans. Mmmm . . .

irish41. Tacos have ingredients added to the shell or tortilla (crunchy or soft) separately, all prepared separately. Apparently papusas are made all one and cooked as one. Like a small fat stuffed paratha. Or a small flat Cornish pastie. Or empanada.

No. Kebab and Gyro are prepared differently. Kebabs tend to be grilled while a proper gyro is spit roasted.

There are no Gyro's in Australia. We love kebabs however. There are more kebab stores in Oz than MacDonalds. The Greek version down here is called a Souvlaki. Both Souvlakis and kebabs can be spit roasted.

I love your user name, Riddler, but detest your happy little Vegemites. Our daughter did a semester of college in Australia and brought home a jar. It is definitely not something we Americans usually eat, but to each his own.

In a past life I made Biltong in South Africa, it is strips of beef, dipped in vinegar (sometimes herby) , salt rubbed and air dried. It is very tasty. I also made Ostrich Biltong which is made from the leg meat and is really good and much prized.

Gyro originated from Bursa, Turkey. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyro_(food)#Origins
+1
level 35
Mar 1, 2018
Oh please... research greek-turkish history. Bursa was originally Cius, then re-named Prusa, a greek city in the Byzantine Empire, later invaded and settled by Ottoman Turks. So Gyro is greek.

Really should accept Salvador for El Salvador. Since the official name of the country is the Republic of El Savador. In other quizes, Gambia is acceptable, even though its called The Gambia short for the Republic of Gambia.

i have to say i don't like the poutine one. i lived in canada for 2 years and they're very proud of poutine. I've had it before but never heard of the name before, it's cheese, fries and gravy for gods sake, to me it's the same as putting ketchup on a burger calling it peader and pretending i've just invented my very own dish

It's my understanding that gyros first came from a Greek who lived in Chicago.
+1
level 73
Nov 21, 2017
That seems unlikely since it's basically the same as shawarma and doner kebab- food commonly enjoyed all over the former Ottoman Empire and nearby countries. Maybe the guy in Chicago put a different spin on it or something. But the best gyros I've had were in Nicosia, on the Greek side of Cyprus.
