We were recently invited for a tasting to Eat Greek Kouzina, which has now launched their newest branch at Mall of the Emirates. Located in the recently opened extension on the second floor, the well-known Greek restaurant has a prime location, near to the brand new cinema, where it can offer the same excellent food patrons know and love in the convenience of a shopping mall.
Just when you arrive at the restaurant you will fall in love with the relaxed ambience where one can escape the Mall’s hustle and bustle and be transported to an authentic Greek destination, perfect for those looking to rest their feet from shopping.
A new addition to Mall of the Emirates location is Sweet Greek, a dessert concept that offers delectable Greek desserts, candy jars and sweet crepes served from a refurbished cargo container.
We were greeted with their signature beverages Mykonos, Raspberry iced tea & Virgin mojito. We personally loved how refreshing and unique Mykonos was. This drink is a combination of Pineapple, orange and raspberry.
We then savoured upon some of Eat greek’s finest cold appetizer including Tzatziki, Spicy feta cheese and Tarama. These dips were served with freshly baked pita bread. Our favourites were Tzatziki, which was a refreshing combination of yogurt, cucumber, garlic & fresh herbs and the Spicy feta cheese, which is a dip, made out of melted feta cheese puree with fresh chilli and paprika. We also tried their signature eat greek salad, which was delicious and authentic to its greek flavours.
We then moved on to our main course, which was inclusive of the delicious Butter Fish Fillet, which was grilled with lemon oil and served with, streamed vegetables and mashed potatoes (chorta). The fish was very tender and cooked to perfection and the flavoursome steamed vegetables complimented the fish really well.
We also ordered Jumbo Prawns Saganaki, which were prawns cooked in a distinctive blend of fresh tomato sauce & feta cheese. The sauce had the right amount of acidity and flavors creating a perfect balance between the complex ingredients.
Finally, for the desserts we couldn’t leave without trying out their sinful Nutella Spartan milkshake. The milkshake tasted divine with the most perfect consistency rich, thick and creamy. We are definitely coming back for more! To top it off this milkshake is served with a Nutella stuffed doughnut on top, it couldn’t get better than this!
We were also served samplers of appetizing desserts including Tiramisu, Yoghurt pannacotta and Galaktoboureko. The Tiramisu also termed as ‘the most unusual Tiramisu’ on the menu, the unusual ingredient being eggplant. We thoroughly enjoyed this twist in the Tiramisu! The yogurt panacotta was generously drizzled with cinnamon sablée accompanied by delicious honey ice cream, we absolutely savored every bit of this!
Lastly, we ended our meal with Galaktoboureko, which is an authentic greek dessert made with layers of custard pie and bathed in vanilla scented syrup. This delightful traditional dessert is a must try!
