Olga's Kitchen is celebrating 40 years since its inception in Birmingham by one Olga Loizon who was inspired by a family vacation in Greece to reproduce the delicious bread which became her signature sandwich: the Olga. This successful and thriving chain now has 31 restaurants in Michigan. We remember when there was only one! Suzie craves their original pita sandwiches made with beef and lamb, onions, tomatoes, a tangy yogurt sauce and sprinkled with cayenne pepper. Olga long ago passed the reins on to someone younger, but she still lives not far from the original eatery. She's been spotted giving cooking demonstrations at local Greek festivals! Opa!
