Papa’s Taste Brought Mass. Town Real Taste of Greek Food

Partners Nina Bejan and Athanasios Papadopoulos like living in Taunton, Massachusetts, but when they moved there they decided it needed something authentically Greek to offer tastes of Greece, so they opened Papa’s Taste.

When she lived in Kalamata, Greece, Nina and her daughter used to spend every Christmas in Taunton, where her sister lives. “I like Taunton, but there was nothing properly Greek here,” she told the Somerset County Gazette.

They have just moved to a more central location after four years in another spot that was too quiet to attract business. “The business is going OK since we opened here. I’ve put a lot of effort into it and want it to succeed,” she said.

“It will be a place where people can come to chat, eat, and hear Greek music. We’ve kept the kitchen open so people can see what’s going on.”

“I have happy memories of growing up with Greek people and want to share the culture, food and everything … Greek food is amazing. I learned to cook with old Greek ladies. Everything I know, the recipes, are thanks to them. I’ve never been to chefs’ school.”
