This is the place you want to go back not 0nly because of the food which is explicitly delicious but because of the most gorgeous and ever chirping host Ms. Thuli. O WOW WHAT A LADY!!! She knows the menu so well and knows how to impress her customers as well. She gets 1 extra rating from my side.
The menu itself was loaded with deliciousness and prepared with the finest of ingredients. We went with the advice of Thuli and it was an amazing journey to Greek cuisine.
For the drinks we ordered the Mykonos and Exotica.
Mykonos is prepared with Pineapple Fruit, Orange and Raspberry.
Exotica is prepared with Pineapple Fruit, Raspberry, Passion Fruit.
The menu is divided into various section like the Cold Starters, Hot Starters, Grilled Meat & Fish etc and all thanks to Ms. Thuli we were lucky enough to try the most best sellers and signatures.
From the Cold Appetizer we were served :
Tzatziki, prepared with yogurt, cucumber, garlic and fresh herbs. One of the most finest dipping sauce from the house of Eat Greek Kouzina.
Eggplant Salad, roasted and smoked eggplant puree with peppers and herbs. My favorite Cold Appetizer of the day as egg plants being in my hit list always.
Spicy Feta Cheese, feta cheese puree with fresh red chilli & paprika.
Kalamata olive, is a large purple olive with a smooth, meaty texture named after the city of Kalamata in the southern Peloponnese, Greece. Often used as table olives, they are usually preserved in wine vinegar or olive oil. There are two methods of preparing Kalamata olives, known as the long and short methods. The short method debitters the olive by packing them in water or weak brine for around a week. Once complete, they are then packed in brine and wine vinegar with a layer of olive oil and slices of lemon on top. The olives are often slit to decrease the processing time. The long method involves slitting the olives and placing them in salted water in order to debitter them, a process that can take as long as three months. Levels of polyphenol remain in the olives after processing, giving them their slightly bitter taste. (Information by Wikipedia)
House made Pita Breads, fresh from the ovens and a healthy treat to your self.
Now here comes my Hot Appetizer and i must say it was one of the best i have ever tasted. Greek cuisine is definitely going to my favorite list of Have On’s.
Soutzoukakia a la Grecque, spicy lamb meatballs with traditional tomato salsa. The meatballs were cooked with perfection and the sauce prepared was infused till the last bite. Served with fresh lettuce leaves on the side.
Cheese Saganaki prepared with Kefalotyri Greek, is a hard, salty yellow cheese made from sheep milk and/or goat’s milk . A very hard cheese, kefalotyri can be consumed as is, fried in olive oil for a dish called saganaki, or added to foods such as pasta dishes, meat, or cooked vegetables, and is especially suited for grating.
The Tomato Salsa served was heavenly delicious, it seems some angel had sat at Eat Greek Kouzina and guided the chef with this delicacy. It still lingers in my mouth and i am going back to this for sure.
As i mentioned earlier that the menu was never ending and the dishes were too relishing to say NO to it. Here are the lavish spread from the Salad section.
Roasted Beetroot Salad, prepared with beetroot, yogurt, apples, walnuts and croutons. One of the best i have had, i did not want it to finish. The beets were so moist and tender and the best part was the yogurt so well mingling with the other ingredients used. One of the gems of Eat Greek Kouzina and a must try out salad whenever you dine in.
Cretan Dakos Salad, Rusk topped with tomato, grated feta, oregano and olive oil. The rusk itself was so perfectly placed with the tomatoes and the cheese that you feel a crisp and crunchy effect on the outer but once you have it it really melts in one mouth. Another fine delicacy from Chef Rizwan.
The Eat Greek Specialty is somewhat you have to try at Eat Greek Kouzina and i was blesses with Jumbo Prawns Saganaki, prawns cooked in fresh tomato sauce and feta cheese. O MY GOSH!!! WHAT A DELICACY. The succulent, tender and moist prawns with the best sauce leaving you with a smile on every bite. Served on a hot frying pan and the best way to soak your pita bread with it.
Here comes my next drink Strawberry Colada, done with pineapple fruit, strawberry juice, coconut milk and fresh lime.
From the mains we were served Butter Fish Fillet, fish grilled with lemon oil and served with steamed vegetables and skordalia. The fish all juicy, tender and moist and the lemon oil added so much character to the dish. The steamed veggies left a flavorful aroma to the dish, so overall it was a w hole meat and best during lunch or dinners.
Kontosovvli from the Grill, as my choice was beef tenderloin it was slow roasted in a traditional Greek style. O wow what a lovely, as a die hard fan of beef this one was dropped from heaven for sure. The most succulent, tender, juicy and delicious bites. The beef was imported from New Zealand serving us the best of quality and ingredients.
A must recommended dish by TheShazWorld.
The Nutella Spartan, nutella milkshake served with a nutella filled doughnut. Being a dessert lover this drink is a must try, chill and refreshing, chocolaty but light. The doughnut itself was prepared fresh in the kitchen with light ingredients and sugar sprinkled.
The desserts here at Eat Greek is delicious, fresh and so divine. We were so blessed with a tray full of delicacies by Thuli. So here goes our list, Chocolate Cake, Baklava, Honey Pie, Almond Cake and Orange Cake. All left a smile on my face after every bite, some desserts were hot and some has to be eaten chill.
My personal favorite was the Chocolate and the Almond Cake.
