Don’t you just love the Greek cuisine? So simple, yet delicious. Anytime I have the chance to visit Glasgow one of the places to eat is Elia, a Greek restaurant in the city centre. Elia means olive tree and it would only be fair for them to represent their restaurant name by offering us the crops of Elia. So we were treated with olives, olive oil and bread right after we placed our order from a mouth watering menu. For starters we had a traditional Greek salad minus the feta cheese (as weird as it might sound I don’t eat feta-Greeks feel free to critisize that), tzatziki dip with pita bread and dolmades-that is stuffed vine leaves with rice and herbs. We also ordered the house red wine and it was oh so delicious and fruity.
For main course I ordered the chicken souvlaki and by the time I finished the starters my stomach was already full. All the dishes were so rich in flavour! Not too much spicy but enriched in herbs and up to my taste standards. The mouthwatering chicken was smooth and melted in my mouth, exactly as I wanted it to be. A delightful treat for my belly! If you happen to be in the city make sure to visit the restaurant. The food is delicious and the music along with the wine, for a second might make you think that you are away in a Greek island.
