Lamb on Chapel
Get your gyros on!
August 01, 2023
With a neon lamb flashing at you above the entrance of an assuming corner shop, which looks like a cross between a butcher and a fish and chip joint, Lamb on Chapel is a no-frills kebab joint serving up delicious chargrilled Greek meals with a friendly smile Monday through Saturday.
The menu here is simple and delightful, with small bites including dolmades, spicy grilled sausages, grilled calamari and traditional Greek salads. There is also a heap of house-made dips like tzatziki, eggplant, hummus and a spicy capsicum concoction not for the weak of heart. Come picnic season, these are an easy addition to the hamper.
Other traditional Greek dishes include stuffed peppers, cabbage rolls and moussaka, while the meat container is a mix of lamb and chicken. There are also lamb and chicken gyros — the Hawaiian version comes with pineapple, the Mexican version adds jalapeños while the classic Mediterranean options come with lettuce, tomato and onions. The Aussie souvlaki is a also fun take on Aussie Greek culture — think lamb or chicken gyros served with bacon and eggs, cheese and barbecue sauce.
Lamb on Chapel is busy throughout the day and week, but do expect lines on a Friday or Saturday night when the shop is open till 5am, serving the drunk Chapel Street crowds.
