Aaaah Greece! The land of Zeus and home to some mighty awesome food. Luckily, we’ve got a list of healthy, delicious and designed Greek food to satiate your taste buds right her in Mumbai!

1. Souvlaki at Gyros

Greeks are the master of charcoal grilled meat. Souvlaki is essentially the Greek version of the sheekhs that you find in India and the Middle East. Skewering mostly small portions of meat and sometimes vegetables, this is Greece’s favorite fast food. Served both with pita bread wrap or grilled bread along with tomato, onions and tzatziki, it is often accompanied with fried potatoes. The authentic Souvlaki uses pork for their servings, but chicken, beef and lamb are also common.

4. Kleftiko at Thalassa

When the Greeks sing, “Mary had a little lamb”, they end it with “and it was delicious.” Greek Mary was most likely having the delectable Kleftiko. The lamb is marinated with lemon juice and herbs. It is then slow cooked in a container. Lamb ‘kleftiko‘ literally means lamb ‘stolen’. We must warn you that this is not a dish that you can master easily, so kudos to the guys who get it right.
