The Brother Hood Yiros + Grill, Admiral Street, Seddon.
It’s inevitable there will be comparisons between this place, just off Buckley Street, and that other new Greek street food-style gyros/souvalaki joint in Seddon.
This is no big deal, as I’m pretty sure both are going to prosper.
Truth is, there’s a welter of kebab-type meals available in the west but a for-sure dearth of Greek classics, a vacuum/niche into which both are happily tapping.
The Brother Hood crew have a couple of favourable points of difference going in their favour:
Their meat is grilled over charcoal.
They make their own pita bread.
Both definite pluses.
There’s another point of difference that’s not so favourable – or at least it’s a little different.
The Brother Hood place is not a restaurant.
It’s takeaway only, though there is a wait space – that’s about as big as a bathroom in a cheap motel.
It’s there that I enjoy my first BHYG meal.
And most excellent it is.
My lamb wrap, at $11, costs a couple of bucks more than the Meat The Greek equivalent and it shows.
Everything is ace, from the house-made pita bread on up.
There’s plenty of lamb – and, best of all, it’s of the classic crusty variety.
My unadorned “patates”, or not “loaded” as the current argot goes, are very good and well priced at $4.
Brother Hood Yiros + Grill?
Or Meat The Greek?
I like it that I can do both.
Brother Hood Yiros + Grill is open for dinner hours only on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
