Suvlaki – Shoreditch

This is the sister restaurant to Suvlaki in Soho which I’d heard very good things about so when I looked on the website to find that they also had a restaurant in Shoreditch I couldn’t wait to visit. This restaurant is set at the end of the very bustling Brick Lane which is a great location. On entering you immediately smell the wonderful aromas of the food. We were greeted by Giulia who was an absolute delight and looked after us so well throughout our lunch. She showed us to our table which was the Naughty Corner a great little alcove set out for Two people. We looked at the menu which is Greek Tapas and just wanted to try as many dishes as we could although the advice we were given was between 3 & 5 plates per person depending on how hungry you are. After consulting with Giulia we chose a good variety of dishes . We started with a selection from the Small Plates section which were a Mediterranean Baked Feta , Courgette Fritters & the Olive & Citrus Wood Smoked Eel. All three dishes were amazing as was the Greek Salad side dish and the Pita Bread with Tzatziki.

We then moved on to the Suvlaki section where we had the Corn Fed Chicken & the Mount Olympus Wild Boar skewers both delicious. You could also have these as mini wraps or even a regular wrap but as we were sharing it was easier to have the skewers



The next section of the menu is the Signature dishes and these are a must especially the Spicy Lamb Chops which were stunning so a big thanks to Giulia for the recommendation. I also had to to have the Octopus which is a big favourite of mine and I would feel like I missed out if I didn’t try it and I’m so glad I did it was simply delicious



Now it was time for dessert of which you only have three to choose from but the ones we chose were delightful. The Chocolate Biscuit Cake and the Orange & Almond Cake paired with a shot of Mastiha a fabulous Greek Liqueur



This ended our time in the Naughty Corner and what was also an excellent lunch where the food and service was amazing. I would highly recommend this place as it’s everything you would expect from a small and friendly Greek restaurant and I for one hope to return soon. A final thanks to Giulia plus compliments to the chef 🇬🇷
