Modern Greek Food

What makes Modern Greek Food ‘modern’ exactly?

Greek Street Food – Review: The London Economic

The food at The Hungry Donkey is all very good, some of it is so good, in fact, that I’m not too keen on sharing with my three dining companions during a recent visit. Opened earlier this year, just minutes from Spitalfields and the city, the restaurant is far less like a British chain pub…

Authentic Greek Food – Review: Crummbs

Guilt free meat by the kilo! At first glance the menu seems absurd, a kilo of meat for between £50-60? No one will want this much meat and no one will pay that much money. But HD recommend a kilo between friends, four of them. So when you break that down and take into account…

Best Greek Restaurants – Review: Londonist

For years, Londoners have struggled to find decent Greek restaurants. North London is home to many popular Cypriot restaurants but menus rarely extend beyond the usual offerings of halloumi (a Cypriot, not Greek, cheese as is often assumed), salads and basic grilled meats.
