Caramel Baklava ice cream at Perama
1. Perama || 88 Audley St, Petersham. Ph: (02) 9569 7534. perama.com.au
At Perama you will find fantastic traditional Greek food with innovative flare. The menu has too many mouth-watering options to have an easy time choosing what to eat. However, the pork belly baklava, the chicken oregano and the olive oil ice cream are absolutely not to be missed! BYO, friendly service and delicious meals, what more could you need from a Greek restaurant?
2. Nostos Tavern || 121 Norton St, Leichhardt. Ph: (02) 9550 0144. nostos.com.au
Nostos holds its own against the Italian restaurants on the Norton Street strip and is definitely not to be missed. Come for the spiced grilled sardines or the tomatoes stuffed with asparagus, eggplant and zucchini. The slow cooked shoulder of lamb is melt in your mouth and definitely worth skipping the pizza for.
3. Corinthian Rotisserie || 283 Marrickville Rd, Marrickville. Ph: (02) 9569 7084.
Come to Corinthian Rotisserie for a good serving of traditional Greek eating, not to mention the huge servings of Greek classics: skordalia, grilled octopus and plenty of lamb served with chips. The atmosphere can be rowdy, the service can be hurried, but that’s part of the charm of this family run affair.
4. Eleni’s || Civic Hotel, 388 Pitt St, Sydney. Ph: (02) 8080 7000. civichotel.com.au
If you’re happy to roll home afterwards then the hearty fare associated with a traditional Greek meal is all very well and good, but a lighter option can be found in the Civic Hotel’s sharing plates: pan-roasted lamb cutlets, Greek style fries with fetta or spicy wagyu meatballs.
5. Medusa Greek Taverna || 2 Market St, Sydney. Ph: (02) 9267 0799. medusagreektaverna.com.au
It’s casual yet smart, affordable yet good quality and the menu is full of old favourites that have been given a freshen up. Try the signature slow-cooked juicy side of lamb with lemon potatoes. Gregori Akridas really has achieved a delicate balance with this CBD eatery making it one of the most popular Greek restaurants in town.
