I want to first start off by saying that I am honored to be Street Meat Steve’s first detour!  I am in no way a Street Meat connoisseur, only having it a handful of times. I’ve always gotten chicken and rice, but this time I decided to go with the lamb gyro.  Boy was it good!  So, I got Lamb Gyro over yellow rice with white sauce and a little bit of hot sauce (I can’t handle a lot of heat!), it came with lettuce and tomato. I mixed it all together (another thing I never have done before) and went to it. It was AMAZING, first of all, the lamb was so flavorful and moist. Best street meat I have ever tasted, but that doesn’t go far since I never had the lamb before. The meat flavor had a bit of a spicy kick after-taste. Delicious. I enjoyed the crisp lettuce, and tomatoes to cool down the flavor. The white sauce could have been better- it wasn’t as flavorful as others, and a bit thin, almost watered down.

I would definitely go to this cart again, but I am looking forward to ordering lamb at other carts to see if lamb is just better than chicken in general.

You know, sometimes Street Meat Steve needs a break.  Sometimes he’s tired.  Sometimes, as much as he loves Street Meat, he wants something else for lunch, or dinner!  Well he has an easy way to solve that: Detours!  There are so many people who come up to Steve and say “Hey Steve, your site is so awesome, how do I get on it?!”  It’s actually pretty easy.  First, you have to actually know Steve.  Second, you just have to visit a Street Cart, take a picture of the food, and review it.  Steve would prefer that Detour reviews aren’t Chicken — because that’s his forté — but he’ll take what he can get.  Detours wont be posted often, but they will be posted.  Check out the first one, coming up soon!
