BEST PART ABOUT VISITING GREECE?

I just like to travel the mainland. I like the islands a lot, but I really like the mainland, you know like going up to Northern Greece. But it’s cool because every little town in Greece has its own little girathikos (gyro shops or stands) and souvlatzithikos (souvlaki shops or stands) and street food places, and that’s a lot of fun to just walk around and eat. That’s pretty much what I like to do: walk around and eat.  

FAVORITE ITEM TO BE SERVED ON GREKO’S MENU?

Asking me to pick a favorite item on the menu is kind of like asking a parent to pick their favorite child: you can’t do it because you’ll never win. Fortunately, my parents always picked me. That being said, I always pick pork souvlaki. It's delicious.
