Greek heroes often proved themselves in moral tests only to wind up in the underworld, not unlike a gyro that battles the knaves of hunger only to meet its end in digestive darkness. Attack hunger's savoury Achilles heel with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of gyros, pizza, and more at Island Greek on Gottingen Street.
One of the only restaurants in the Maritimes to serve authentic gyros made on a rotisserie, Island Greek coddles its juicy meats until they develop complex flavours and perfection complexes. The chosen sandwich ($6.20) of roasted, thinly sliced pork comes with smears of homemade tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, and onions swaddled in a traditional pita. Traditional poutine gets a Greek makeover with a top hat of feta cheese ($6.95–$8.35), while Island's specialty pizzas ($11.75–$19.99) cross hemispheres to incorporate global ingredients such as Mexico's jalapenos and Hawaii's pineapples for intercontinental pies that fluently speak the languages of satiety and Esperanto. This Groupon is valid for pick-up and delivery to the Halifax peninsula only. An additional delivery charge will apply.
