St Jacobs Market Impromptu Food Chronicles: French fry Edition : A Taste of Greece


Walking through the market and our stomachs grumble, fact. Not from being hungry, or you don't think you are hungry till the smell of the pop up food vendor shops or staple stores hit your senses like a wave of get in my belly intense flavour.  The aroma as we were heading down one aisle following both our nose and now hunger for something to eat, and we see it. We see the object our senses awoken to... The French Fry Sign.But not just any fry. The aroma has a certain flavour profile and the ingredients listed, that was it.

THE FRIES
You get real potatoes, skin on cut to perfection, perfectly salted perfect sized fries. Marinated in rosemary, thyme, and chives and then topped with feta cheese. Served with this kalamata  dip on the side that I can't even. It was just that good. These fries are a must for a quick snack or a keep you going so you can continue around the entire market. At $4.25 the price is right, fries are shareable and you get more real food. There is so much more to get there as well and if I had not been so memorized by those fries I would have taken a deeper dive into all the food on offer. But because I didn't and only had fries on the brain, I have no shame; from that sign , the ingredients and the aroma made it impossible for me to think of anything else. Since since there is so much more there how about you run to their Instagram page and check it out https://www.instagram.com/atasteofgreece1/  Just by seeing their pictures man I missed out, but those fries. Seriously wiped any other thought from my brain , esp once the dip hit my taste buds.







(Who gets the last bits...... no perfectly cut, topped to perfection spud gets left behind, nor any of that feta)
A Taste of Greece delivered just that, and I wanted to stay there and lick the dip container. But instead I took the fry fork and flipped it and it spooned it out.  Any waste would have been pure blasphemy.
As a staple inside one of the buildings, A Taste Of Greece will always be there for you. Nostalgia adorns their cash spot with a piece of the original wood before the devastating fire to the market many years ago.



Yes I was graciously given the fries to try ( which I am so grateful for and my taste buds are too), but all opinions and writing style is mine and given in a very honest way. I can't fault them in anyway except maybe a tall glass of that kalamata dip for the side but then that would just be being greedy at how amazing it is.  This to I would buy in bottle form as a take home. 
Whether you are hungry or not you can always find room for fries. Make sure to get yourself on to any GRT bus or train and get your self driven to the market for free. You have Thursday and Saturday left to ride when the market is open.
