Review - Zeus Street Greek



Alex Harmon was excited about getting to go Greek this week...



Hellenic street food in a sleek modern restaurant, that’s the premise of Zeus, the second joint in the Sydney empire.



Like their god, the food is lightning fast, and there seems to be a staff member for every guest on this busy Sunday.



While their ‘paleo lunchbox’ is popular, we go down the traditional path and go gunning for gyros, the signature Uncle Tzimmy ($10.50) with chicken and chips wrapped up in fresh pita hits the target.



Eyeing off the open rotisserie of meat, we order from the ‘nude’ menu, this is pots of char-grilled meat (not healthy stuff like I originally thought), the Lamb ($18/200g) does not disappoint, especially with the Tzatziki ($6.50) and House-made Pita ($3).



Freshen up with roasted Corn Cobs ($9.50) smeared with kefalotiri (a deliciously salty Greek cheese). The owners are also behind the popular Crust pizza chain, so they know how to please an audience I think, as I devour the Tarama ($6.50). I could seriously eat this fish roe dip with a spoon.



Alas I sensibly save room for the Chocolate Loukoumades ($9) - Greek doughnuts with chocolate hazelnut sauce and house-made ice cream that were the envy of the bustling room.



With scooters outside ready to deliver to the neighbouring suburbs, I think, maybe we need to move house.
