Lamb Kebabs with Mint

Inspired by my recent trip to Suvlaki, I decided to make some meaty skewers of my own. Quick kebabs are a favourite midweek meal of mine. They’re insanely easy to assemble, quick to cook and easy to spice up by just throwing on any herbs and spices you have knocking about in the cupboard. I…

Suvlaki, Soho

In my family, we have a slight obsession with Greek food. I grew up with Greek-Cypriot neighbours who basically became extended family and the culture/food therefore played quite a big role in mine and my sister’s upbringing. We’re always pretty excited about trying new Greek restaurants. When we heard about Suvlaki, we got there as soon…

Turkey Meatballs with Greek Linguine

You may have seen my previous Greek Style Turkey Burgers post and these meatballs follow exactly the same recipe as those burger patties. This came about as I was just cooking for myself for a…

Greek Style Turkey Burgers

It’s summer, which means barbecue season (when it’s not raining) which, in turn, means burgers! Ok, so some of you may be a bit burgered out by now. Just how many quarter pounders can one manage in a single summer?! But just because you’re having burgers every weekend at various barbecue gatherings doesn’t mean you…

Mediterranean Café, Soho

Finding somewhere good to eat in Soho is not difficult, but what is difficult is finding somewhere where the food is excellent, reasonably priced and you can actually get a table without queuing for an hour or putting your name on a waiting list. You’d be forgiven for thinking such a place doesn’t exist, but…
