REVIEW: Suvlaki, Greek Street Food In Soho
In a small, unassuming spot in Soho’s Bateman Street is Greek restaurant Suvlaki, but what this place lacks in size (this is a cosy restaurant for sure!) it certainly makes up for in taste.
This is Greek street food at its very best – absolutely delicious, mouth watering sharing platters of mixed grilled meats, which have been cooked over a robata-style grill for an authentic taste.
The cosy atmosphere makes for a relaxed, intimate ambience and it was the perfect place to catch-up with a few girlfriends, who were up from Brighton for the day.
We opted for the Suvlaki Exuberance sharing platter which included wild boar sausage skewers, pita burger with lemon mustard, crunchy Greek salad and a baked feta which was SO good, all washed down with a carafe of Muscat.
Greek graffiti on the walls gives the restaurant a contemporary, urban feel and friendly waiters added to the relaxed atmosphere.
The best thing, this restaurant also does takeaway- so those working in Soho can enjoy its delights on a daily basis!
Started by a group of friends from Athens, who shared a passion for freshly cooked, good food, Suvlaki actually means “little skewer,” which is synonymous with the street food scene in Greece. Bringing the taste of Athens to the streets of Soho they certainly do, and the prices are great for a lunch-time pit stop, as well as a longer evening meal.
