The Real Greek Covent Garden

Squaremeal Review of The Real Greek Covent Garden ?

Most Brits’ knowledge of Greek food is limited to their holiday gyros & moussaka, washed down with copious quantities of Mythos beer. The Real Greek chain has its work cut out convincing the populace there’s more to it, but its lively contemporary eateries do a game job with an enticing menu that champions the region’s wonderful ingredients – octopus, herbs, honey, olives, pulses & suchlike. ‘Nibbles & mezze’ cover a lot of ground from dolmades & grilled haloumi to smoked aubergine salad or garlic & chilli tiger prawns, though mains are pretty much limited to souvlaki with flatbread. Meagre portion sizes are a serious grumble, so you’ll probably have ample space for pudding. Think carefully before ordering the ‘Greek sundae’, however; there are calorie counts with every dish, & that bad boy has 685.

Don't write this off as your average chain eaterie because this venue sets it a world apart! Yes, it's the standard menu and quality you'd expect from The Real Greek: the usual hummous, tzatziki dippy dishes, grilled meats, greek salads etc (in my opinion great as I love Greek food and I love getting to try lots of smaller dishes). And the wine list is short and heavy on Greek contributions (it's not a nation known for enotec-ery!) but there are reasonably priced New Worlds on there too. But here's...

    Got To Be Gourmet :: Got To Be Gourmet: Dinner at The Real Greek, St Martins Lane

    Quite a few years ago (more than I would like to admit) I had lunch at The Real Greek with a friend. As you can guess from the name, it’s a Greek food restaurant with a number of locations across London. I was in my first job after graduating University and still regularly went back to Cyprus (as much as annual leave would allow!) but I was craving ‘home food’ and came across The Real Greek. But I was disappointed. I felt it was fairly expensive for rather small portions compared to what I was used to at home, and therefore didn’t go back again.
