Review: San Jose Greek Festival 2015 w/ PICS

hhc | May 30, 2015 08:57 AM

Went to SJ Greek Festival Fri 5/29/15. You can't park close to the church, they block of the streets for workers of the festival and residents. There is plenty of free parking on W. Hedding St and The Alameda, or you can take the FREE shuttle that is on their website.

I had FREE pass from when I went to Souvlaki in SJ so I didn't have to pay the entrance fee of $5. Seniors/students $3. Get tokens after the entrance, but if line is really line there is another booth by the large food booth more on the Right and another token booth by the Stage.

Food I got:

Athenian salad $5 - tomatoes, bell pepper, feta cheese, some olives, red onions. I liked it. In a small bowl.

2 Dolmathes for $3 - ground beef & herbs wrapped in grape leaves & topped w/ lemon sauce. Both were still warm and full of meat. I liked.

Lamb chop dinner 3 chops $15 - comes with rice and slice of bread and slice of lemon. One of my lamb chop was really burnt, but the other 2 were pretty good.

Galatoboureko $3 - Greek custard dessert. It's small square, I liked it, one of my favorite thing to get there.

Sugar cookie $2 - like a Mexican wedding cookie. Wasn't very melty or delicious, i still ate it.

Frappe $4 - Greek coffee, just ok, looks like from a mix with 2 small ice.

I took a picture of the Loukoumades Small $5/Large $8 - lady said they were really good, I asked permission to take the pic.

I stayed a bit to see Mythos play and some people did Greek line-dancing. On the weekend, but not Fri they have a Church Tour - would like to see that one day.

Bring lots of Money!! Cash is easier. I did see one ATM machine.

Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church
