Mimis, Thessaloniki

THESSALONIKI | When it comes to street food in Greece, you really can’t go past the ubiquitous gyros. There’s a reason why this pita wrap has become a symbol Greek food the world over. It’s delicious, affordable, and easy to eat on the go.

Mimis is a no-nonsense gyros spot in the centre of Thessaloniki that’s been a favourite amongst locals since opening in 1974. Named after the original owner, today Mimis is run by his son, Giorgaros.

You have a choice or pork or chicken as your protein (there’s also a vegetarian option), a selection of fillings and sauces, wrapped in a soft, warm, fluffy pita. Simple, quality ingredients done right. There’s also a house burger created by Giorgaros in response to customer requests, that I didn’t try that’s very popular.

I wanted the pork, but it was sold out for the night, so chicken it was. “The usual please” was my response to the question of fillings, which saw me get chips and tomato. The same response to the question of sauces got me tzatziki, yellow mustard, and sweet chilli.

The result, one of the best, generously packed gyros I’ve had in my life. It also happens to be one of the cheapest melas you’ll enjoy in Thessaloniki, at €4
