Who said that being vegan and Greek is not possible?
Food stall Staazi & Co: The Greek Vegan Project proves non-believers wrong with a 100 per cent plant based menu that will not leave any tastebuds un-titillated.
The newly-established business will start roaming South Australia’s streets on Saturday 25 August, serving up all sorts of traditional Greek favourites from gyros to baklava.
Staazi & Co has garnered thousands of followers on social media even before its official launch as it promises to provide ethically cooked dishes with locally sourced produce – where possible – at a reasonable price.
The Adelaide community, however, is not unfamiliar to the Staazi & Co signature as the stall has popped up at the Wheatsheaf Hotel, and at numerous events like the Vegan Festival, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival’s Wintergarden, not to mention WOMADelaide getting rave reviews.
Since then, the demand for Greek food and Hellenic-inspired flavours that do not include animal products has been constantly increasing.
“Our mission is to provide you ethically created dishes with locally sourced produce where possible at a reasonable price,” reads the Staazi & Co website.
“Our commitment is to care for the welfare of all animals and the environment. All our meals are made without the use of any animal products, inclusive of meat, milk, cheese, butter, cream and eggs. Our ingredients are 100 per cent plant based. We are confident we can change any preconception you may have that being vegan is limiting.”
Although their menu is seasonal, there will be classics the likes of oregano and sea salt seasoned hot chips; ‘lamb’ (soy) yiros & AB, vegan moussaka, yemista (stuffed veggies), revithia (chickpea stew), gigandes (baked lima beans), fasolakia (green string beans and potato casserole), spanakopita, fakes (lentil soup) and a variation of Greek-style salads.
Staazi & Co will be onsite at local events, major hotspots throughout Adelaide and also offer services for private functions.
