Gyros

Day of Dömötör in Hungary. Its an old Hungarian name a version of Demeter.
Gyros
This post is dedicated to kris and to selana and also a tribute to Greece. This is the Gyros place kris wrote about in one of her comments and though its not a fancy place, its very simple...nothing touristic in it, not an attraction, but lets say one of the icons in Budapest for the people of Budapest. Going to the Corvin movie theater is a program to get a gyros here after or before. Everywhere else pop-corn and coke. But at the Corvin this Gyros is "the" place.
Little funny detail that the table says NYITVA (OPEN) in Hungarian and closed in English...but don't hesitate...ask for a gyros!

What a picturesque shop, with the interesting decoration. I imagine the gyros are delicious there.

really nice place! like the funky athmosphere as an overall - tourists should definitely come here, although sometimes it is nice to have some places which are not tourist attractions...

interesting information about your *snacks... :P
it reminds me the very Chinese snacks, one of my favourite,but its not very nice to eat when you go to the cinima : Chou4 dou4 fu1 (chou4 = stink, dou4 fu1 = tofu).I like that very much. tastes well, but smells bad... :D

Did you try when you came to China, Zsolt??

Yumm, love gyros. Fascinating little restaurant. Funny signs in both Hungarian and English for a Greek place. Good capture.

I can't remember what kind of dish is Gyros. I'm sure it's delicious.
yes, the colors of this greck mural at the entrance are really soft and elegant.

KRIS..I was also surprised how good it looks on the photo. Its definitelly not a fancy place.

OLIVIER..its rather a modern place..and very simple..and ANNIE is right, the gyros is very delicious there.

JING..I didnt try Chou dou fu in China but next time I surely will!

RUTH..they will be very happy if you get in:)

ALEX..you have to visit Greece..believe me you will enjoy GYROS and the country as well:)

LARA..only well informed tourists know which are the really good places in a city.:)When you will be in Budapest you will know where to get good gyros. (a next secret for you: the gyros is great in the Greek restaurant in the mall called MAMMUT, too):)

PHOTOWANNABE..I asked if the staff speaks Greek. But they were Hungarians:) I guess only the owner is Greek
