September 27, 2010 in restaurants
Last Thursday, my girlfriends took me out for an early birthday dinner at a place that will now be known as my favourite West End restaurant – the Little Greek Taverna.
Nestled on the corner of Browning, Melbourne and Boundary Streets, this little piece of Greek heaven opened in December last year and seems to have garnered a healthy crowd of regulars. I wonder how I’ve managed to miss it until now!
I love Greek food but this is definitely some of the best I’ve had in Brisbane. To start, we shared some pita ($3) with tzatziki ($4) and some fried haloumi ($8). Both were delicious and set our mouths watering for more.
For the main, I opted for lamb cutlets with Greek salad ($15) and it was truly one of the most simple yet most delicious meals I’ve had in some time. The meat was cooked to perfection and the salad was fresh and deliciously dressed. I’m not at all ashamed to say I chewed on the bones because I didn’t want to waste a single bit of tasty, tasty meat (sorry Mum!). The other girls chose the lamb souvlaki and salad ($13.50), which was also incredible (yes, I stole a taste).
I have to say the restaurant is amazing. The service is friendly and fast, the menu was comprehensive and the bill was tiny. The only downside was that it was a little loud but truth be told, we were too busy stuffing our faces to talk. I definitely plan to head back for another meal soon!
