Known for their A-grade vegan yiros, Staazi & Co have found their permanent home on Grenfell Street — and man, are they onto a winner!

Created by Roger and his wife Anastasia (who left her corporate job to pursue food as a form of activism), Staazi & Co’s mission is to create delicious Greek food while changing any preconceptions that being vegan is limiting. “If you can eat a vegan yiros and think to yourself, ‘this is yum,’ then what else do you need? We wanted to show that vegan food could be an appealing option for everyone,” says Anastasia.

Creating a traditional Greek yiros experience (minus the meat) came with its challenges, but once Staazi & Co nailed their secret recipe, they hit the streets and festivals of Adelaide in their food truck.

From the get-go, the Staazi & Co truck always had a long line of customers waiting to wrap their lips around a loaded lamb-style yiros, complete with perfectly seasoned hot chips. If you think we’re exaggerating, we’re not — they even took out the Lonely Planet title of fifth best vegan food truck in the whole world!

While Anastasia never saw herself in a bricks and mortar store, it was the demand that decided it for her in the end. “All I ever wanted was to create something ethical that I could make a living from — never in my wildest dreams did I think we would receive as much love as we have over the last three years.” And now, Staazi & Co calls the beautiful building at 224 Grenfell Street home, four days a week.

So, what’s on the menu?

While you can’t go past the signature lamb yiros, complete with tzatziki and hot chips wrapped in an authentic toasted pita, do yourself a favour and grab some more hot chips on the side — either plain or LOADED. Crispy and seasoned to perfection, they’re what dreams are made of.
