While falafel is OK, I prefer gyro or kebab.

And grape leaf rolls and seaweed~
So many things are good on or around rice.

Sad: I'm now almost positive I chipped a back tooth yesterday and I have no idea how, I was eating tater tots.  The tip of my tongue is super sore from worrying at it.  Guess there was a speck of rock packed in, I hate when that happens.

I agree but Yoink is vegetarian.

There are .. vegetarian.. versions of both.

I can't speak to the edibility of either; I am a consummate omnivore, and want my cuisine to follow suit, but there are options for those that do not.

Just because people call something by a name doesn't make that thing what they call it~

I know that traditional gyro is made with specially seasoned beef, and kebab is traditionally meat of some kind (usually lamb or beef);

However, gyros can be made from all kinds of things, not just the traditional style. Also, Kebab is a verb for the preparation method.

كباب
Arabic
Etymology
According to Nişanyan, borrowed from Aramaic: compare Jewish Babylonian Aramaic כבבא‎ (kbbʾ, “roasting of meat”), כיבה‎ (kybʾ, “perhaps roasted meat”), which are from the verb כבב‎ (kbb, “to burn, roast”), ultimately from Proto-Semitic *kabab- (“to burn, to roast”), whence also Akkadian 𒅗𒁀𒁍 (/kabābu/, “to burn”).

We've been through this before - in the name if clarity I will reshare the serious version of what I concluded the last time instead of jokingly insisting that the way my country uses the does kebab is the correct one.

Kebab, while etymylogically descended from Arabic, is used by Turks for a hundred thousand dishes, used similarly to how in English "roasted meat" could mean a hundred thousand different things.

Gyros (Greek), Döhner (Turk), and Shawarma (Arabic) all mean "to rotate" and refer specifically to the method of cooking involving roasting the meat on a rotating spit.
