Greek food @ Souvla, Central- HK

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Of all the restaurants, in all the towns, in all the world, we choose this one*. Souvla hidden on the first floor of an industrial building in party central Lan Kwai Fong aka LKF.

Hong Kong seriously has all the food, if you had told me a year ago, I would find a Greek restaurant that I absolutely adored in Hong Kong- I would of laughed. But low and behold, it's a thing. Souvla is one of those places that I want to recommend to everyone, yet at the same time keep it as a secret whilst it's still incredibly quiet (in the sense that you don't have to queue a ridiculous 1-2 hours for a table) but I really need to sing it's praises. As it is tucked away on the first floor of an industrial building, so if you're on the search of this place- definitely keep your eyes up to the skies.

I've been here precisely three times now, it's definitely one of my favourite restaurants to visit and worth crossing that harbour and steep hill to get to.

Here's some pictures for you to drool over.

We started off with out favourite fresh pita bread and our choice of dip for the night- it was a creamy hummus dip topped off with a sweet, syrupy pomegranate middle. Originally we chose a different starter, but as the waiter informed us that it was sold out- we went with our old favourite- also the one that we've gotten each time we've been to this place as they are that delicious- Kataifi prawns (you need these in your life) wrapped delicately in angel hair filo for that outside crunch then consisting of freshest prawns that are infused with a creamy tangy sauce.

Making the mistake of ordering too many of these wraps before, I chose the succulent pork wrap and Michelle went with lamb wrap. The meat was so juicy and perfectly balanced with the fillings too. Satisfying our appetites.

Lastly, we topped dinner off by sharing a pudding, nudged on by the friendly waiter, a honeycomb vanilla ice cream pod topped off with salted caramel. The side chocolate was delicious- it reminded us of a good ol' crunchie bar, but the honeycombe that wrapped the ice cream tasted a bit off- it definitely wasn't the highlight of the evening for us. However, although it wasn't our cup of tea but it might be yours if you like the honeycombe/ coconut texture.

As always Souvla, you never disappoint.
