Sometimes the best quick, fresh, and inexpensive meals come from unexpected places – especially Houston. Sometimes there are unexpected gems in convenience stores, gas stations, and grocery stores. This is the case for Oh mmm gyros, nestled in a corner of the recently opened J Mart Supermarket at 3801 Jeanetta. owner Shazia Hussain invited Houston Food Finder to review the offerings.
Oh mmmm gyros serves Build your own rice bowls and wraps, similar to the rotary wagon. In addition to the traditional bowls built with gyro meat or chicken on a bed of rice, there are some less common and fusion dishes that all use fresh halal ingredients and sauces.

The typical dishes at Oh Mmm Gyros are these Rice plateswho offer a choice of chicken, Beef top or a combination of both on a base of well-seasoned rice and a whole range of toppings: cucumber, tomato, olives, jalapeños, cucumber, corn, onion and homemade white and hot peppercorn sauces. The chicken is marinated for 24 hours and has a mild taste that mixes well with the rice. Instead of the more frequent, thinner, and often flimsy shavings, the gyro beef is cut into thick, powerful bites – a pleasant texture with every bite. The trays fill up and with such a wide range of toppings to choose from, are well worth the $ 8 to $ 9 price range. If the rice bowl isn’t what you’re looking for, the store also offers all of these options in thick, soft packaging Pita wrap.
Vegetarians are lucky with the large selection. Oh mmmm gyros serves Falafel and Pop a potato, a lightly fried potato mix that resembles a croquette filled with paneer cheese and mushy peas.

Crunchy french fries are topped with gyro meat, feta cheese, and mild and white house sauces that go well with the peppery and sour flavors of mounds of crushed hot cheetos. Guests can also enjoy their gyros on the fusion side of the menu Quesadilla Fashion, with grilled onions and melted cheese wrapped in a hot tortilla.

Speaking of red and white sauces, even larger chains have problems balancing the amount of heat the red sauce contains. This makes it a game of balancing the hot sauce with the soothing white sauce before turning the bowl into a damp mess. Signs with the inscription “The sauce bossThe aim is to help guests assess how much of the homemade sauces to use and when. The traditional paprika sauce has a pungent smell and a lot of heat, but isn’t as overwhelming as other spinning top locations. An alternative for those who enjoy the food on the milder side is the signature pink saucethat is alive in both color and taste. Peppercorn and mayonnaise flavors take center stage in the heat-taming white sauce.
