Greek Gypsy, 545 Macaulay Road, Kensington. Phone: 0423 709 769
We are eating from yucky polystyrene – and it’s all our fault.
Well … sort of.
If we’d made clear our eating intentions – to have our dinner right there, beside the food truck that is Greek Gypsy – we’d have been provided proper crockery.
Oh well …
As it is, we do get metal cutlery as we proceed to enjoy our meals.
And very good they are, too.
The outdoor furniture that accompanies the Greek Gypsy routine may not be any less disposable than the polystyrene containers.
From the compact menu, both Bennie and I choose …
… open gyro plates ($14), with a mix of lamb and chicken.
The meat is outstanding – both juicy and chewy, the lamb having a slight edge IMO.
Toasted pita goes good with a generous serve of excellent tsatziki.
The salad bits?
Chips ($5) are just the teensiest bit too oily.
But otherwise, they are hot, crisp and yummy – and, like, the meat, way better than we have been expecting from this food truck operation.
One of the dinner options we had been contemplating this night, just down the road apiece, would’ve run to a minimum of $80 for the pair of us – and quite probably more than $100.
Yet here we are, sitting atop Kensington Hill, having spent a fraction of that and grinning like happy fools as we eat like kings and watch the traffic and the world flow by.
Life is grand!
