I am a lover of all junk foods; well I use to be. Years ago I would go to places like McDonald’s often and wolf down a supersized value meal with a bucket of soda. A few things have changed since then. One of which is my metabolism. In the past I could eat this type of food, play sports, and it didn’t seem to affect me. I was immortal. Now if I eat a large fast food meal, I feel horrible and become lethargic. Yes I am a little older, but since I cook a lot of fresh food now, I definitely notice a difference. I am no longer hopped up on preservatives, chemicals and additives and it feels great.
Although the cravings for fast food have subsided, they haven’t completely gone away. I have found a happy balance with places like Yanni’s Greek Express and Greek Souvlaki. Yanni’s is located at the corner of Highland Dr. and 1300 E. in Sugarhouse. Yes they do have burgers and fries on their menu but I have never actually seen anyone order that. Stick with the Greek food: souvlakis and gyros. And since this is Utah, they even make their own fry sauce.
A gyro combo will run you under $8 and there will be enough food for later. I personally love the gyro combo with white sauce, onions, french fries and a salad (you can substitute the salad for a drink and lemon rice for the french fries). This was my lunch last Saturday as I was running errands and feeling the hunger pains of not eating breakfast (I do this a lot actually). Yanni’s was in the area and solved that problem quickly. Ruby helped me with the meal, she is also a big fan of their food.

If you haven’t been to Yanni’s, drop in soon. Please let me know what you ordered and your review of their food. I will definitely be back again soon.
