Food Adventures has super secret info that we have been waiting months to release right here on Dayton Most Metro. It concerns Dayton’s newest food truck, that will soon make a splash in the Miami Valley.
THE GREEK STREET FOOD TRUCK is putting the final touches on its menu and final tweaks on operations, but looks ready to roll.
We are excited because this will be the first strictly “Greek Based truck” that we know of and brings further diversity to an already incredible selection of local food vehicles.
So whats the scoop on the new kid in town? Who is behind the Greek Street Food Truck?
HERE’S THE SKINNY ON THE OWNER:
— CHEF CHRIS SPIRTOS, owner and operator of Greek Street Food Truck has an extensive cooking background.
— Chris went to Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Chicago to hone his craft. The Centerville native, also worked at L’Auberge and as a sous chef at Sung’s Korean Bistro in Cincinnati.
— Chris also studied under the Chef for Oprah Winfrey, Chef Art Smith, while living in Chicago. He was so well thought of, that Chris was flown to Oprah’s California home to help fix a dinner she hosted for the first graduating class of her school in Africa.
— More recently, Chris has worked on the incredible food truck, Zombie Dogz
— Born into a Greek family (his grandparents were from Greece), Chris’ recipe for Baklava is his mom’s, and it is a traditional favorite.
What type of eats can you expect on the truck? Food Adventures has all the scoop right here.
Other GREEK STREET FOOD TRUCK info:
HERE’S THE SKINNY ON WHAT TO EXPECT:
— The meats are individually layered on a spindle and cooked. There are no compressed or processed meats. Just a Beef/Lamb mixture spindle, and a Chicken spindle. Each gyro is sliced to order.
— The Greek Street Food Truck will have a core menu of:
Greek Fries or Regular Fries
Spanakopita (a Greek spinach Pie)
An assortment of dips, possibly including hummus
— The menu will feature daily, revolving specials as well
Now, without further delay, let’s give you our menu items from Greek Street Food Truck that are absolutely, “Must Eats”….
— CHICKEN GYRO, STREET STYLE: Stacked rotisserie chicken breasts slices, piled into a pita and topped with “street style toppings.” Street style means: tomato jam, pickled red onions, crumbled feta, fresh herbs, fries, and tzatziki sauce. Quite honestly, one of the most flavorful and unique gyros we have had. If you try one thing, this is item to grab.
— BEEF GYRO, TRADITIONAL STYLE: Shaved slices of stacked lamb and beef rotisserie cooked meat. This is a throwback to the gyros of the old country with “traditional toppings.” Traditional toppings are: tomato, tzatziki sauce, onions, smoked paprika and french fries. This gyro is authentic. It is like a steak sandwich, no processed meat here. Damn good food on the “go.”
We are excited for the first Greek themed entry into Dayton’s food truck scene. The Food Adventure crew of The Big Ragu, Chef House, and Hungry Jax, wish Chris good luck with his “Big Fat Greek Food Truck.” We think Greek Street will be a huge hit… here’s to you .. OPA !
