Eat All the Spanakopita You Can Handle at This Weekend's Greek Food Festival

We've had a few weeks of breather, but festival season's not over yet — and this weekend is bringing a small food fest to keep yourself in shape for Eat Real, Hardly Strictly, and the rest of them still coming down the pike. A Taste of Greece is held every year at the Annunciation Cathedral at 13th and Valencia, serving up a solid portion of traditional Greek foods, wines, dancing, and more.

[jump] On the food side, expect items like spanakopita, moussaka, kotopoulo (marinated fried chicken), gyros, pastries (think baklava, syrup-soaked doughnuts loukoumades, and kadaifi, those nut-filled pastries that look like hay bales). There will also be Greek wine, live music, and traditional dancing.

Admission is free. The festival will be held Fri-Sun, Sept. 19-21 (noon-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, noon-8 p.m. on Sunday). If you've ever bemoaned S.F.'s general lack of Greek food, here's a great chance to eat your fill.
