The Real Greek (London)

HIM and I spent a wonderful weekend in London – what started out rainy and miserable, turned into fabulous weather… we explored Covent Garden Market, went to a matinée show (The Mousetrap) which I can highly recommend, spent a day out at the Warner Bros Studio’s in Watford (“the making of Harry Potter”)… and of course eating.

We had the wonderful experience of eating Greek mezze at THE REAL GREEK in Covent Garden (as there are more than 1 of them)….

We opted for the ANATOLIAN mezze platter to share (for 2 people £27.97) where you have 7 dishes (with each of the 7 sections offering 1 of 2 choices)

We decided up on the Greek Flatbread (instead of Crudités), Hummus (instead of Taramasalata), GIGANDES PLAKI – giant beans slow cooked in a herby tomato sauce (instead of Revithia – which is a chickpea dish), Chicken skewer (instead of a halloumi skewer), Dolmades - vine leaves stuffed with rice, tomato & herbs (instead of Tiropitakia – which is spinach, leak & feta filled filo parcels), Pork Belly (instead of grilled Halloumi) and SAFFRON RICE (instead of new potatoes)

It was amazing…

I could have eaten it all week…. especially those Dolmades! And there was MORE than enough food for 2 people… with the cold plates coming out first – and then the hot plates (pork, chicken & rice) arriving bit by bit over the space of 20min.

Would I return? YES – and if they had a Brussels franchise – I would probably be a regular!
