Served with: Gyros and skewered meats.
But try it with ... Fries, a burger, "some customers even eat it with a spoon, they love it so much," says owner John Thanoukos.
Takeaway: 40 cents for a 4-ounce tub.
After swooning over this thick creamy cucumber sauce for years, I was shocked to learn it was made not with rich Greek sheep yogurt but sour cream—along with chopped cucumber, fresh garlic, vinegar, olive oil and lemon juice. Still, I love the way it acts as a cool, tangy foil to the rich, spicy slices of gyros. It's also great for dipping with fries and as an accompaniment to veggies and bread.
