White washed walls, the sound of waves crashing, and the aroma of fresh kebabs grilling in the wind. Not the sights sounds and smells you would normally expect to encounter in the heart of New York City but with that’s what you get from the Souvlaki GR truck. Boasting a “little taste of Mykonos in the heart of NYC” the Souvlaki truck lives up to its namesake and transports us to the scents and flavors of Greece.
Born in 2010 as a food truck highlighting Greek favorites like kebab, gyros, Greek salad, and oh yeah Greek fries. This NYC Food Truck favorite has racked up awards like Vendy’s and People’s choice, and always keeps the people coming back. Mykonos is among the most popular isles in the Aegean sea. Welcoming a diverse and lively crowd. The colorful flowers, spanning beaches and lively nightlife are inspiration for Souvlaki.
Over the years they have grown in popularity, opening restaurants around the city and luring in foodies from around the globe. From uptown to downtown you can always count on these guys to bring the isle straight to you. Need to shake up your next event? Well sometimes you need more than a cheese plate to keep the party going – especially when in these freezing winter months… That’s when you call up the Souvlaki Truck to turn your winter blues into a hot island bash…
So even if you don’t have cobblestone streets and bright blue ocean at your disposal, you will have a little taste of Mykonos, and a little taste of Mykonos goes a long way.

Food trucks have a unique challenge when it comes to permits and licenses. Everything from food safety to where you can park is regulated at the federal, state, and county levels.
Fresh Trucks are retrofitted school buses with a new purpose: to bring fresh food to communities so households have access to healthy food.
