Uncle Gussy’s Pastistio is Like an Awesome Greek Lasagna
Fans of Uncle Gussy’s Truck know to stalk the Twitter Tracker to see what special owners Nick and Franky’s mom has made for the day. Lamb chops and pork chops are popular in the rotation (it’s hard to beat mom’s oven roasted lemon potatoes), but keep your eyes peeled for Pastistio.
Made of layers of macaroni, seasoned ground meat and béchamel sauce then baked together in a casserole, this dish reminds me of Cincinnati chili meets lasagna. For $10 you get a generous hunk of Pastistio and a Greek salad on the side with plenty sharp, real deal Greek feta cheese. I’ll be keeping my eyes out for the next time this makes an appearance on the menu.
Uncle Gussy parks every day on 51st & Park Avenue. Check for specials on their Twitter Account.
