I love me a gyro, and Papa Sabz makes pretty good one.
Papa Sabz is a quick serve restaurant in Casselberry, a nondescript storefront in an even nondescripter strip of businesses. But the inside is spacious – probably more room than they really need – and the staff was welcoming and friendly, even as the woman who took my order slightly corrected my pronunciation of gyro.
“I’ll have the lamb year-oh,” I said. “Ok, the lamb jī-roh, anything else?” she said. “No, just the year-oh, thanks,” I responded.
By any name, it was a generous portion of meat in a hot and puffy pita with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and cilantro. I could have used more tzatziki sauce but then I can always use more tzatziki sauce.
I have no idea who Papa Sabz is or even if there is a Mama Sabz. And I won’t even hazard a guess how to pronounce Sabz.
