Zeus Street Greek, a family owned group of fresh-casual eateries, has opened its first location in Canberra which brings a fresh new offering to the city’s vibrant food scene.
Having just opened its doors at Shop 7, 21 Genge Street, Zeus’ newly launched menu is set to wow local customers as it showcases the venue’s ability to fuse modern Greek street food with the best of Australian produce in a relaxed contemporary environment.
Zeus Canberra City is home to healthy, customisable and high quality options that are perfect for a date night, mid-week family feast, quick post-workout meal, or for those on-the-go or dining al-desko, and everything in between.
The classics include the Uncle Tzimmy pita range, which features succulent meat from the Souvla cooked traditionally on long skewers over hot charcoal, all wrapped in fluffy pita bread with tomato, tzatziki, onion, paprika and Zeus’ famous chips.
The high-quality chicken, pork and lamb are sourced from premium growers. Zeus chicken and lamb are both natural and healthy and free from antibiotics and hormones and Zeus pork is 100 per cent Australian and sow stall free.
New additions include two new beef pitas using premium Wagyu Beef, the Piccalilli Pork pita which puts a Greek twist on the classic mustard and pork pairing, and the Otto pita which indulges the Australian love of schnitzel, combining chicken schnitzel with a zingy preserved lemon mayo, Aegean slaw and caramelised onions.
The location is home to a high quality fit-out spanning a light filled corner block, offering a welcoming, relaxed and contemporary industrial inspired setting. The store design pays tribute to the authenticity of the Greek kitchen within a bespoke ‘street’ customer experience.
“We’ve had customers trekking from Canberra to visit our Sydney locations and the question we often hear is ‘when will Zeus come to the ACT?’ Zeus Co-founder Costa Anastasiadis says.
“There has been such a positive response surrounding the Canberra opening, and the new location will truly embody Zeus’ philosophy of food mantra that is carried throughout the brand Australia-wide. It’s a very exciting step for us and we’re very much looking forward to becoming an active part of the local community.”
To commemorate the opening, Zeus Canberra City will be giving back to the local community by hosting an ‘I LOVE FREE SOUVLA’ event, powered by Take Give, on Saturday 25 February.
Customers will be invited to join the local Zeus family from 12pm to 3pm where the team will serve free Zeus Lamb and Papou Niko Chicken pitas until sold out! For each pita, $2 will be donated to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Zeus Canberra City will be open for Lunch and Dinner:
11:30am – 9:30pm Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday
11:30am – 10:00pm Friday and Saturday
Closed on Mondays
