Astoria New York Greek Community and NYC Greek Food Tour (Vlog)


Astoria has the largest Greek community in New York City. The best Greek food in NYC can be found here in Astoria. In this video, we take you on a tour of New York’s Greek community of Astoria. We pass by private Greek social clubs, markets, shops and of course, lots of food!
Here are all of the stops we visited. All of the food stops can also be found on our Queens food maps.

6: King Souvlaki
31 St & 31 Ave
Astoria, NY 11106

For over 40 years, King Souvlaki has been serving up souvlaki on this corner in Astoria. They have expanded from a small cart to a large truck and a few other trucks across NYC. Phenomenal fries along with three types of hand stacked gyros – the real deal!

7: Franky’s Souvlaki
Steinway St & 31 Ave
Astoria, NY 11103

Another long time souvlaki vendor who has been going strong for over 40 years. This one is a childhood favorite for Greg and just a short walk from King Souvlaki.

8: Taverna Kos
41-19 23 Ave
Astoria, NY 11105

Couldn’t end this video without some seafood! Only fitting that our last stop is a slightly hidden restaurant in a Green social club. Check out our blog post on this spot here: http://foodandfootprints.com/taverna-kos-greek-food-astoria/
