Praise be to the gods! Sydney district Drummoyne has had its prayers answered with the arrival of Zeus, a Greek street food outlet that combines everyone’s two favourite ingredients: tasty and cheap. There’s a third factor in the mix here too, that of filoxenia – it’s the Greek tradition of showing hospitality to all who call upon you, whether they are a hungry Horace from the ‘hood, or a deity passing by on the way to unleash some mischief or woe on the mortals of this world.
Zeus himself may be tempted to pop in and try the signature dish named after the top god, which is a heavenly-sounding blend of slow-cooked lamb, Aegean ‘slaw, smoked eggplant, onion and parsley in a pita wrap. The founders are all first-generation Hellenic Aussies, so you know you’ll be tasting the authentic flavours of their homeland. They’ve also kitted the place out with some design motifs from the islands, such as the pots used by traditional island fishermen, and lots of cool white surfaces.
