How do you pronounce Greece’s favorite food?

Remember Vassilis Anastassopoulos, the restaurant worker we spoke with at the top of our first show in Athens? He talked to us a little about gyros.

“It’s different kind of meat with pita bread, and it’s the No. 1 most favorite food,” he said.

Well, there was a little bit of the interview we didn’t play for you, where he lets us know it’s usually pronounced “gear-os” not “gy-ro.”

Which is good to know, because I get that wrong all the time.
