BERKELEY’s BEST ●Restaurants
Troy Greek Cuisine 2985 College Ave./Ashby Ave., Elmwood. Situated in a sweet little space with an upstairs loft for overflow, this spot serves up delicious Greek items. We shared both a Greek salad made spectacular by its tasty dressing and a pita-wrapped gyros sandwich filled with a beef-lamb mix, lettuce, tomato, onion, and tzatziki. Wraps come in two sizes and include a vegetarian-friendly Melitzana made with grilled eggplant and feta. Souvlaki wraps made with chicken, lamb, or beef are also available and can be ordered as entrée plates, which isn’t a bad idea because our wrap wanted to fall apart. Also on the menu are mousaka, pastitsio, a killer hummus, and exceptional Middle Eastern falafel that are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside and served with tahini. Delicious red and green housemade sauces are provided in squeeze bottles. Fat Tire and local Pilsner Urquell beers are on tap.
