With the newest additions to its menu, Freskos remains committed to offering residents of Connecticut healthier alternatives to fast food. It is believed that a plant-based diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, says a restaurant spokesperson.
Freskos’ new Ya’sou Gyro is a vegetarian option for diners who want to reduce their meat intake. Instead of lamb or beef, the Ya’sou Gyro has a plant-based meat alternative as the filling, along with red onions, tomatoes, sprigs of dill, and tzatziki, which is a traditional Greek yogurt sauce. The filling is wrapped in warm pita bread that is freshly prepared in-store.
Freskos also has other vegetarian options on their menu, including their Tofu Souvlaki, a Greek wrap with grilled and marinated organic tofu, and their Imported Greek Veggie Burger, which is served with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and tzatziki. Vegan diners can also request that the tzatziki be omitted when they order the latter. Many vegetarian sides are available as well, including classic Greek salads and Greek lemon potatoes.
Customers who prefer meat dishes can opt for more traditional items on Freskos’ menu, such as their Shrimp Souvlaki, which is made with marinated jumbo shrimp, and their Classic Gyro, a gyro with a combination of beef and lamb as the filling. Freskos can also add meat toppings to their Greek vegetarian pita pizza upon request.
Freskos promises their customers an authentic Greek dining experience with every item on their menu, which they achieve by importing many of their ingredients directly from Greece. Since opening in 2016, the establishment has won several awards, including Best Greek Restaurant in CTNOW’s Best of New Haven reader’s poll.
A satisfied customer said: “This restaurant reminded me of the delicious food I had on one of my trips to Greece. It’s very authentic, and all the dishes that we ordered were simply delicious. Very fast and friendly service.”
