Originating from the Ottoman Empire Turkey in the 18th or 19th century Gyro or Shawarma is doner Kebab. Doner means “rotating grilled meat.” When it was introduced to Greece, the locals named it “gyros,” the Greek word for “turn.” Likewise, when it spread through the Middle East, it was called “shawarma,” an Arabic word for “turning.” When the meat gloriously spins on a cone-shape grill, these names stuck. The gyro or shawarma kebab is served from a large cone that slowly turns and roasts all day, cooking the meat in its own juices.
