REVIEW: Hungry Donkey, Aldgate

13260134_1078461202225981_8521910792513843194_n

WHY GO? This funky Greek kitchen buzzes with city workers during the week, turning up for quick lunches and takeaways. There’s a real focus on sustainable, free-range produce thanks to award-winning meat suppliers – the booze is authentically Greek, unpasteurised beer brought in from native microbreweries and wine making use of ancient Greek grape varieties.

WHERE? A few minutes walk from Spitalfields and Liverpool Street/Aldgate stations, it’s on Wentworth Street, one of the quiet roads behind busy Bishopsgate. A great little gem to have up your (hungover Friday lunchtime) sleeve.

WHAT? Hot and cold mezedes, meaty souvlaki wraps and plates of meat and fries. We popped in for breakfast, which focused on great coffee, juices and traditional Greek pastries (try the Spanakopita, a term very recently added to the English dictionary and with good reason – you’ll want to order this spinach and filo pie again and again).

Scrambled eggs, onion, tomato, mushroom and Greek sausage are stuffed inside fluffy pita breads in tempting combinations, so pencil in this carb-laden treat after a Saturday morning gym session. After you fail to resist the Portokalopita, a zesty ripple cake made with orange and olive oil, you’re going to need something to ease the guilt.

HOW MUCH? Mezedes and salads hover around £6, souvlaki pita wraps are about £6.50 and traditional Greek dishes or ‘smashing plates’ like moussaka are £10-12. Breakfast is amazing value at around £6.50 for extremely filling pitas piled with eggs and meat. Even the hungriest donkeys will leave satisfied, we guarantee it.
