Downtown Allentown's Seventh Street is a delicious drag.
From Mexican restaurants El Patron and Taqueria Los Amigos to Chinese hot spots Chan's, China Wok and Happy Garden to other ethnic eateries such as Casa Latina, Cuchifrito, Winston's Jamaican Restaurant and Ethiopian-centric Mariam's Restaurant, the thoroughfare has picks for every palate.
The newest addition to the tasty strip is New York Gyro, which opened May 22 at 513 N. Seventh St.
The main draw is the restaurant's namesake, which can be ordered with fresh-cut lamb, chicken or both. All meat is halal.
"We're looking to offer delicious, affordable options for the neighborhood — just like what you would get at a New York street cart," said Iffy Mahmood, who is operating the restaurant with his brother, Moe Soonasra.
