Even if you’re not Greek, you may have heard the Greek expression “ya’sou” or “yassas” in your travels (or maybe even right here at Freskos!) Greeks often greet each other with this friendly, casual phrase, but what does it mean?
What Does Ya’sou Mean?
Literally translated, ya’sou means “ to your health” – and is used to greet someone and wish them good health. That’s why, in the spirit of “your health,” Freskos has an exciting new item on our menu – we call it the “Ya’sou” gyro and it’s available exclusively at Freskos.
What’s in the Ya’sou Gyro?
As with all of our classic Greek sandwiches, we start with a warm pita – fresh from the oven, thinly sliced red onion, tomato, fresh sprigs of dill all topped with a generous dollop of tzatziki.
