Giok Balik (Thessaloniki, Greece)
Eth. Aminis 34, Thessaloniki 546 21, Greece, T: 231-024-0022
Around the corner of the Falafel House is a restaurant, which serves the traditional grilled meats and pitas of Greece. Giok Balik is truly bumping on this (early) evening, so I assume that it must be either really good or really cheap. As it doesn’t look particularly cheap, I decide to check it out.
I get the Pita Gyros (€2.80) with everything, which here means fries, mustard, ketchup, and tzatziki (and onion and tomato). The pita is thick but soft, the meat very tasty, and the fries crispy. The various sauces give it all an excellent taste.
Giok Balik serves some of the best gyros in Thessaloniki! On top of that, it has a bigger choice of dishes and condiments than at most other places.
