Sam’s Gyros (Bowling Green Mall): Some of the best Mediterranean food in Ky.
Every now and then, I’ll come across a Kentucky restaurant that makes it almost impossible to write a review. Some food just defies description and you know it’s a losing battle because you’ll never be able to do it any justice. Sam’s Gyros in the Bowling Green Mall is just such a place.
I want our readers to be able to experience the food for themselves, though, so I’m going to give it my best.
First of all, I love the Bowling Green mall. So, the fact that Sam’s Gyros are in this great mall is like icing on the cake. I get to enjoy outrageously sweet shopping AND some of the best food you’ll find anywhere.
Where are you going to beat that?!
Here’s the thing, though. When you enter the mall’s food court, you will be tempted by a lot (and I mean A LOT) of different restaurants. The first few times we went, I fell prey to the temptations of the Asian restaurants. Asian food is normally excellent, no matter what mall’s court you’re in – so they’re always tempting.
However, the Asian restaurants in this food court cannot hold a candle to Sam’s Gyros. If you go to the Bowling Green mall and eat anywhere besides Sam’s Gyros, you’ve blown it sky high.
Don’t even look at the other restaurants in the food court! Head for Sam’s Gyros – no questions asked.
As you can see from the picture above, Sam’s Gyros is a Mediterranean Restaurant. They have some of the absolute freshest, most delicious food I’ve ever tasted. How they take something as simple as hummus and make it something so remarkable is beyond me. I’m a HUGE hummus lover and this is the best I’ve had. It’s phenomenal and the bread served with it is so amazing, it’s delicious even by itself – but there’s no way I’m leaving that delectable hummus sitting there with nothing to do… so the bread and I scoop up the hummus and have ourselves a yummy little party.
There are a lot of different options on the menu – including options for vegetarians, chicken lovers, and – of course – gyro fanatics. Absolutely everything is Heavenly. In addition to working magic with hummus, they also take rice and turn it into something I can’t get enough of. I’m normally indifferent (at best) when it comes to rice, but I could eat a bucket of Sam’s Gyros’ rice and ask for a refill.
Make that two refills. Seriously, their yellow rice is addictive – but then again, so is everything on the menu.
The vegetables are always so fresh and everything is so flavorful that I wonder why there are even other restaurants in the food court.
If you love great, exceptional food, you simply have to try Sam’s Gyros. Please, please, please, DO NOT get distracted by any of the other restaurants in the food court. Make a beeline for the friendly guys at the Sam’s Gyros counter and they’ll hook you up with food so amazing you’ll be lost for words. Be sure you get the hummus and rice, whatever you do.
