For a bite to eat on the way to uni, we headed to Zeus in Drummoyne, where the pitas truly taste like they’ve been made by the gods!
On this visit, we chose two pitas – the Spartan, and the Uncle Tzimmy Classic. The Spartan had chicken with slaw, onion and parsley, and was delicious both inside and out! The bread used was light and fluffy, and not too dry, more thick than usual wrap bread. The insides were also well cooked, and very flavourful. The Uncle Tzimmy Classic had lamb with onion, tzatziki, onion, paprika and chips, which was delicious as well! The chips gave it a unique taste to offset the stronger meaty flavours, and was quite enjoyable, with the insides being well spiced and softened by the yoghurt sauce.
On a previous visit, I have also had the Loukoumades, which are greek donut puffs with honey, cinnamon and walnuts, which were very delicious! Perfectly sweet and soft in the middle, they are a perfect end to a heavy Greek feast.
The place itself is easy to find, being on Lyons Road, and is quite small in the interior, so takeaway is a good option. The wait time can be long during peak periods, so keep that in mind. Orders are taken at the counter and brought out to the tables, and the interior is rustic and airy, and a nice place to eat.
For Greek fare with a contemporary and fun twist but authentic flavours, head to Zeus! The pitas are a must try, and don’t leave without grabbing a dessert as well.
