Growing up in my house was like a festival of food. It was integral in every part of life from holidays to daily meals and everything in between. Everything was fresh, local and prepared with love and detail. The joy on people's faces when they tasted the various delicacies, was priceless.
It's with those fond memories that The Grilling Greek was born. We try and share those moments with everyone who tries our food. The meats we use are local, free range and halal(chicken). The produce like our vine tomatoes, herbs and potatoes are also local and where possible organic. We import only the highest quality Greek products like Extra virgin olive oil, barrel aged feta and Kalamata olives.
Everything prepared and cooked fresh, on the day, for each event/market ensuring quality and authentic flavors.
After years of studying and working at some cool places in New York and London I decided to take the leap, leave it all behind and jump in this wonderful, amazing, sometimes crazy but always fun and rewarding world of street food. Using my experience, the goal was always to bring the highest quality food and a feeling of being back in Greece. Along the way I have met some amazing people, from satisfied customers to fellow traders, that have helped me along the way and have become an extended family. This is just the beginning of our story!!!
