Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses: for $5, you get $10 worth of Greek fare at The Gyro Company in Allentown on Airport Road.
The Gyro Company's Greek gourmets wield four generations of family secrets to craft a hunger-quelling menu of tasty delights. An alternative to traditional fast fare, a pita-bread concoction stuffed with thinly sliced meat and fresh veggies, then slathered with a homemade yogurt-cucumber sauce, satisfies bellies on the go. Gyro-noshing novices can ease into the eastern eat with an original gyro, jammed full with a beef-lamb medley, lettuce, tomato, onions, and tzatziki sauce ($6.49). Herbivores and time-lost brontosauruses will delight in the veggie gyro, a wrap rife with grilled garden favorites ($6.49). Accompany bites with slurps from a cup of chicken and orzo soup, a citrusy spin on the comforting noodley classic ($3.79 for a small, $4.99 for a large). Forays into foreign fare end wonderfully with a sweet-tooth-taming baklava ($1.69 or $3.19) or a hill of honey puffs, doughy balls drenched in honey sauce and sprinkled with cinnamon, great for bating bears confused about the food chain ($2.89).
