What is this? Street Eats writing about a humble, some might say, lowly street meat trailer? The answer is no, that is not how we roll. Taste of Greece offers a small menu of common Greek street food like gyros and stuffed grape leaves and that is OK. For many people their first street food experience was an anonymous food cart slinging gyros on a college campus or maybe the Ali Baba trailer at Ohio University. There is no shame in being typical and ordinary if you do it well and consistently and that is what Taste of Greece does. Located in the mobile food Mecca of Clintonville, Taste of Greece is surviving the winter and serving people in the community. Highlights include Homemade Greek vegetable soup on Mondays for $4.00 as well as homemade Tzatziki sauce salad dressing. For the record, I would ask (and this writer is not typically a pronunciation snob…especially for those that have heard me speak) that customers please ask for a Gyro (Year-Oh) not a gyro (Ja Eye RO) when ordering. If you want to know why, ask Matt from Pitabilities for the explanation.

He has years of restaurant experience. While working for others he has always dreamed of having his own business. In early July 2010, he opened his cart to the world. Continue reading
