What to eat in and around Seattle today: Yannis Greek Restaurant

Apr 18 2020, 4:45 pm

If self-isolation has you binge-watching Kitchen Nightmares, you’re not alone.

Indulge your cravings by watching the program while devouring delicious food from none other than Yannis Greek Restaurant, which was featured on the show in 2012.

You may be wondering — why would I want to eat at a place that was on a show for nightmare restaurants? Well, the fact that it’s still around eight years later, should be an indication that Gordon Ramsey got the job done.

When starting your order, immediately go for the hummus dip.

Other great appetizer choices include the horta vrasta: boiled fresh spinach and zucchini drizzled in oil, and the vegetarian dolmathes: grape leaves rolled with rice, diced vegetables, fresh herbs, and baked.

If you’re looking for something lighter to eat, stick with a pita wrap.

Yannis Greek Restaurant’s falafel wrap is not too dry or oily, while their homemade gyro tastes rather authentic.

For those with large appetites, order up a dinner portion of fried calamari, or one of their souvlaki skewers. The half rotisserie chicken is also a great choice, especially when you order it with a side of roasted potatoes and rice pilaf.
