Review - Souvlaki Hut

Tougher economics mean I’m attempting to diversify the places I dine so I show meals that suit all budgets, but price isn’t the only reason I’d recommend this place. The style of food promotes sharing (with tongs and cutlery made of actual metal);  the cuisine’s recognisably Greek and the fine print reads it’s better for you unless salt is a problem. Staff are helpful and friendly, making this an easy place to go Greek for the first time.

The Family Platter ($32.95) is a steal for the price.

It includes two dips (Tzatziki’s great and garlicky), a fresh salad with tasty tomatoes and crisp cucumber, chicken and lamb, very good chips, and a choice of grilled haloumi or meatballs (take the tasty cheese).

The chicken bests the lamb; the grilled pita bread bests everything.

You can also eat the tasty grilled bread in four pita-wrapped souvlaki in the Family Stimulus Pack ($19.95) which feeds four with chips and a 1.25L drink.

Locally baked Greek sweets - Kataifi or Galaktoboureko ($4.95 with coffee) - were the real surprise here, accompanied by a well-blended Frappe ($3.50).

The window seat gave me a perfect view of their neighbouring Sword of Damocles – a red and white Colonel.
Choose life, eat Greek.

I need to eat more Greek, but I usually end up at Steki in Newtown.

I'm sure restaurants would be better than this convenience food outlet, but if you're ever in Gladesville, this ain't too bad a choice!

Couldn't get past the haloumi. You introduced me to that stuff, god I love it. That and "Thermo-nuclear deep fried tofu", remember? The spongy stuff that soaks up all the laska sauce and stuff. Nom.

mmmmmmmm haloumi. Nom.

Sadly the thermo-nuclear deep fried tofu restaurant has also changed hands... such a shame. However I have found the product in Asian groceries, and now I add it to soups. If you noticed here: http://missdissent.livejournal.com/232800.html that's the stuff.
