Souvlaki is served largely in restaurants that specialize in it. Chunks of meat are cut evenly and skewered on wooden stick, called a kalamaki, or on small metal spit, and then grilled. It is a fast food found at outdoor celebrations and Greek festivals. The chunks of meat can be pork or chicken, and are served with sliced bread.
In restaurants, larger skewers are made into meal-sized portions by interspersing the meat with slices of tomato and pepper, and accompanied by French fries.
