I don’t often wander down the quieter end of Grenfell Street, what more with so many wonderful distractions along Rundle Street and Ebenezer Place. A couple of fellow bloggers stressed that we must try it and now we are forever grateful to them. A little place that one could easily missed but the appetizing aroma of grilled meats will lead you in easily.
Open from 11am-10pm Monday to Saturday and open till 11pm on Friday, there is plenty of time to get your yiros fix. The menu is simple and the food is affordable. You get a your choice of meat in yiros or in a platter. Platters are served with three salads, pita bread and tzatziki. Can’t decide? Just get a mixed grill platter and share, it’s the best way to eat with friends after all.
Mr Foodie went for a classic order – Lamb Yiros. At $12.50 for a regular size ($10 for small), it’s the usual price for a yiros. Then there’s a Yiros and Beer Combo for $15. Bargain. The yiros comes out and it’s the most beautiful thing when you’re starving. The lamb yiros comes with lettuce, tomatoes and sauce. This is no chip shop rotisserie yiros meat. This is premium lamb pieces, marinated so well and cooked to perfection. It was tender, it was delicious, it was addictive. Then there’s the bread. The yiros bread they use is a whole different ball game. It’s no dry and thin wrap, it’s soft, warm and fluffy pita bread.
Lamb Yiros $12.50
I went out of the ordinary and ordered a Pork Shashlik Yiros. The meat was just as well marinated and tender but mine came with different fillings. I had a spicy sauce and some salads. I believe it was a mix of Pickled Salad and Cabbage Salad. All those spices, chilli, tangy pickles, sweet onions and cabbage came together so perfectly.
Pork Shashlik Yiros $11
I have my blogger friends to thank, for we would never have found the best yiros otherwise. Next visit it’s gonna be the mixed grill platter, I need some hungry stomachs, who’s up for it?
