Entering the fast casual market in Mt. Pleasant, John Ondo, formerly of the Italian focused Lana on Rutledge, opened Kairos Greek Kitchen May 2017. In the old K-Mart shopping center on Bowman Road, Kairos promises “healthy, Greek inspired dishes” and they deliver them fast. Get in line and start by choosing a rice bowl, pita, or salad base. From there your protein choices are excellent falafel, slow roasted lamb, chicken, or meatballs. Dress it up with a choice of nine spreads and dressings including tzatziki, harissa yogurt, tahini, and baba ghanoush and then top it with kalamta olives, tomato and cucumber salad, feta, or one of the other 10 toppings and you’re out of there in less than five minutes. And, if you don’t want to hike to Mt. P, Kairos has opened a second location serving up the same fast, tasty fare in West Ashley. —Robert Donovan (Dish, Summer 2019)
