There are two places to grab a bite at Tacoma's Greek Festival: Inside the church itself, where you can purchase by the plate, or outside under a large tent, where the food comes a la carte.
I opted for outside.
First stop was the table selling gyros ($5). I got mine without tomatoes (just don't like them that much). The meat was tender but not overly greasy. The sauce was tangy but not salty. And the whole thing was gone in about three minutes.
Never miss a local story.
The Greek fries were tasty and a good deal for $3. They're Greek instead of French fries because, as the guy serving them told me, "they've got Greek seasoning on 'em." Oregano? I dunno; I ain't the food critic. But one topping I did recognize was feta cheese. I never thought it would go well with French, err, Greek fries, but I was pleasantly surprised.
And I finished things off with baklava ($2). My biggest complaint about the stuff is that usually it falls apart into about a thousand crumbs after the first bite. This stuff, though, kept together but still managed to be flaky. I was tempted to purchase an entire tray of 12 pieces for $12, but my editors wouldn't be to happy if I tried to expense my gym membership.
