The city of Ridgeland welcomes Yiayia's Greek Kitchen to town. Yiayia’s is a family-owned business serving authentic, Greek cuisine from recipes handed down from generation to generation. Named for proprietor Despina Mangafakis, Yiayia means "grandmother" in Greek, and Despina is grandmother to two precious grandsons.
Guests will find piles of stuffed grape leaves and cabbage rolls, trays of cookies, baklava, and spanakopita (that’s Greek for spinach pie). Entrees include the mouth-watering eggplant dish moussaka, baked fish, roasted chicken and lamb, and the pasta and meat dish, pastitsio. Side dishes include roasted Greek-style potatoes or rice, Greek salad, and Greek-style meatballs.
Yiayia’s Greek Kitchen is located at 587 Highway 51, and it open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
