From Athens to Sarasota, Florida via Dubai – Greek Food Truck

October 31, 2021

It was a long roundabout for Diana Wynnberry to get to opening a Greek food truck in Sarasota, Florida but she had the right training to do it as an American who grew up in Athens and lived there for 45 years.

Her life took her to Dubai too, where she ran a Greek café, so she knows her stuff and it shows in the 18-footer that serves walk-up customers and also offers catering services for private parties and community events, said The Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

She’s looking for a permanent location to park the truck so people can count on finding it and said she did it “because I wanted to offer fresh, real Greek food in Sarasota.”

She has a degree in hotel and restaurant management and said, “I enjoy providing only authentic dishes using fresh, local ingredients because not only are they good, they’re healthy. The meats are marinated in assorted herbs, and everything I create is homemade.”

Among favorites provided at her food truck are Greek salads, gyros and pastitsio (Greek lasagna). She also offers moussaka and sides like tzatziki and dolmades, plus yummy desserts.
