Saraj is located in West Des Moines just south of I-235 on 50th St. Recently a friend I met there for lunch and was happy to see them once again. They offer a complete menu with appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pitas, entrees, and items for the kids. Since they are a bakery too- they have delicious pastries and deserts. Check out their website for a menu.
My friend went with the Bosnian Style Gyro. Very similar to Gyro- but on a homemade soft bread instead. I had never seen anyone get this before. It was huge- about the size of your head. It is filled with gyro beef meat, lettuce, onions, sliced tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce.
I went with the traditional Greek Gyro. Very similar to other Gyro sandwiches in town- but for whatever reason I love theirs the best. I think it is the homemade pita bread. It is filled with gyro beef meat, lettuce, onions, sliced tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce.
Next time you want to expand your taste buds check them out for lunch or dinner.
