So this sign in the window of Mon Cheri Cafe in Georgetown advertises gyros, with a little pronunciation guide underneath saying ‘Yee-ros.’ But when I went in for lunch once and asked for a ‘YEE-RO,’ the guy said “Ok, one ‘JAI-ROW’ coming up!”
Help me. I am so confused.
Mon Cheri Cafe, by the way, while not much for dine-in ambience, does a lovely gyro, heaped with stuff, all for really cheap (well, cheap for Georgetown, anyway). The Greek salad is decent, too, and they’re pretty fast.
