Find them at Acropolis Grainger Market, Stack Newcastle, Stack Seaburn, Burn it up North Shields, By the River Co Brew, Secret Garden, Dockyard, Bar 29 at Tynemouth, Tynemouth Market, Quayside Market, Jesmond Food Market, Blaydon market and many more!!!
Acropolis’ slogan, ‘Authentic Greek Street Food’, is posted on each of their stalls, and nothing can get more authentic than the beautiful people behind this family-run business: Filip, his brother Viktor, their mum and their friend, Yusuf Yenil, all of whom are originally from Greece and are now committed to bringing their collective passion and knowledge about the foodie culture of their homeland to the North East.
Filip worked with street food in Greece until he was offered a job at a restaurant on Newcastle’s Quayside and moved across to the UK. But something was missing; he missed the traditional side of the Greek street food culture he had grown up with. So, while on his lunch breaks, he visited Quayside Market and fell in love.
Winners of 44 events and Wylam Brewery’s Battle Royale 2021, and Mediterranean restaurant of 2021/22 by the North England Prestige Awards, be sure to check them out at one of their many sites, or you can even order a gyros straight to your door through deliveroo!
