Finally I got a chance to review a Greek restaurant, being a foodie its always exciting trying different cuisines. As we all aware there are very few restaurant in Dubai so trying out a authentic one is like a journey to Greece flavors without leaving Dubai. Located on the lower ground floor of Dubai Mall right before the exit to the Dubai Fountain.
Eat Greek honors the breadth of traditional Greek cuisine by bringing fresh, wholesome cooking from all regions of Greece to a contemporary and comfortable setting in upbeat Dubai. The moment you step in you feel you have been transported to some Mediterranean place with rustic interiors, pretty hanging lamps, stone washed walls. In fact it was a daytime but the branch in Dubai Mall make you feel like as if you are in an backyard party in a relaxed evening setting.
Our server name was Barney who know exactly how to do his job. We started our session with some refreshing drinks like mint lemonade and passion fruit icetea.
In starters we got to try Homemade Pie of the Day, it was freshly baked puff pastry stuffed with cheesy ingredients, it was very filling so I could manage to have a small bite of it to keep a space for other items.
In salad my friend suggested to order Roasted Beetroot Salad, yes usually people tend to avoid dishes with beetroot but let me tell you it was flavorful with beet, yogurt, walnuts, apple and croutons.
In main course we ordered
- Chicken Skewer
- Shaved Lamb Pita
- Chicken Sandwich
- Fresh Catch of the Day
Chicken Skewer comes in an interesting presentation of crescent moon platter served along with fries and pieces of pita bread. The chicken pieces were soft, juicy and delightful.
My friend and I was were tempted to try Lamb Pita served in flower pot, an interesting presentation with a filling of shaved lamb mixed with tzatziki, tomato, onion and chips wrapped in soft pita bread.
Chicken Caeser Sandwich was my favorite one, chicken wrapped in a smoked veal bacon with spring onion, eggs, Parmesan and caeser dressing. All the sandwiches here are quite filling and perfect for one ravenous tummy.
Don’t forget to ask your server for the fresh catch of the day. We were served the whole fish cooked with lemon oil and served with fresh lemon wedges. If I was not full by then I would have eaten more of it. I am not a very spicy person so I liked the way mild spices have been incorporated in the marination and cooking in Greek food.
Last but not the least desserts. In menu there was only two options so our server Barney bought the both of them on our table to let our taste-buds acquainted with the Greek’s sweets taste. First one was orange pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. There was the taste of orange blossom in it so if you like orange flavor in desserts which doesn’t impress me then you would enjoy it for sure. I don’t remember the name of the second one but it was again a puff pastry drenched in sugar syrup filled with sweet filling. I will prefer the second one for recommendation.
Overall, my experience was delightful and am glad to try Greek food in such lovely restaurant where food, ambiance and service all were on point. Thank you Greek Eat Kouzina team
