Portokalopita From Uncle Gussy’s

Portokalopita aka Greek orange cake

I’m telling you Uncle Gussy’s in midtown can do no wrong. Last time I wrote about their tasty grilled pork chop with oven roasted lemon potatoes, well I have fallen in love with another tasty treat. Portokalopita aka Greek orange cake. Basically it’s made by shredding phyllo dough then mixing in a batter and baked. To finish, an orange flavored syrup is poured over the cake.

The version from Uncle Gussy’s is so damn freakin good. I should really get two slices next time. It’s light and pillowy with great orange flavor. Makes a great afternoon snack with that cup of 3pm coffee.

The portokalopita is a special, so follow them on Twitter to find out when they will have it again.

Also, congrats to Uncle Gussy’s for being one of the finalist for this year’s Vendy Awards.
