Damn. I want a gyro now, but there's no way I'm walking a mile to get one, lol.
I have to say that even though I don't like working in restaurants, I do love the fact that it has expanded my palate. There are things that I absolutely love now that I hated years ago (for example one of the ingredients for a gyro, feta cheese. I used to hate feta, but have grown to love it by repeated tasting). I think the ability to repeatedly try things without risk (i.e. spending money on it) helps out a lot. I mean, it's a lot easier for someone who works with food to try things many times, as opposed to someone who doesn't that might have to pay $18+ a plate for something that s/he may not like (or risk buying it on their own and not preparing it properly).
