Review, Suvlaki, Soho

Before I jetted off to Barcelona - which already seems an age away - I was invited to sample some greek food at the newly opened Suvlaki in Soho. I've only ever had meze and never tried the street food option so was very excited to treat my tastebuds. Suvlaki is a meat skewer grilled over charcoal. It can be eaten alone or inside a doughy chunky pita bread. It's said to be Greece's national street food.

Suvlaki is a tiny little place with only room for 34 people but they do a takeaway option too. Make sure you're prepared to get up close with fellow diners as there's not much space and they opt for communal style eating. The interior is very shabby chic and nothing too fancy. The grill is near the door and you can watch the chefs do their magic as they prepare your food. I like having a little nose in restaurants!

We obviously went to town - as much as we could at lunchtime! The chunky tzatziki yogurt dip with crispy warm pita bread wet our appetites before the main event. It may not look the most photogenic but the baked feta was absolutely delicious. The creamy feta was filled with juicy tomatoes, salty olives and pepper - I could have just sat there and eaten pots and pots of it. 

For the main course I opted for a regular wrap filled with juicy grilled pork, plum tomatoes, cucumber tzatziki and parsley glazed red onion. The pork was cooked to perfection - nothing worst then chewy meat that takes forever to eat. The glazed red onion was the star of the show and the plum tomatoes gave the wrap some much needed sweetness. My boyfriend decided he needed filling up and went for two wraps. The first consisted of chunky lamb mince with a mixed green salad and green herb sauce. The second was the juicy boar sausage smothered in a hot red pepper sauce and a variety of veggies. I had major food envy when this came out. It's what I'd recommend you opt for!

It's not a cheap lunch option but you really do pay for what you get. It was really tasty, service was quick and it filled us up. We couldn't even manage dinner until very late. Very impressive as we ate at 12! We'll definitely be back.
