Tsiknopempti 2018

Huzzah, it’s Greek Carnival season a.k.a. my favourite time of year! Not only because it’s the time of year that the entire Greek community comes out to celebrate together in a Mardi Gras style, but also for ‘Burnt Thursday’ – a day devoted entirely to devouring as much meat as possible before Lent commences. We call it Tsiknopempti.

In that sentiment, I am hosting my very own Tsiknopempti celebrations on Thursday 8th February, where I will be serving up souvla galore for a mega meat feast for all attendees, alongside the best in Greek wine and Tsipouro. As a Greek restaurant in London, there wasn’t ever going to be a chance to pass up on this! If the 2017 celebrations are anything to go by, then I am hoping for a very merry night with all the usual Hungry Donkey crowd, Greek community and those who just want to give Tsiknopempti a go wishing that the UK was just this fun ? Here’s to bringing a taste of the Hellenic islands to the heart of Spitalfields!


Does this sound right up your street? Make a booking here.


P.S. No plate-smashing guaranteed.


Yours truly,


Your ever favourite Hungry Donkey
