My Big Fat Greek

My Big Fat Greek – Elephant and Castle
When – 30th May 2011

Starter – Pitta Bread, Houmous and a traditional Greek Salad with Feta, Olives, Onions, Tomato etc.
MAY 036

Main – Keftedes - Homemade lamb & pork meatballs cooked with onions then seasoned with fresh herbs and rice
MAY 037

What I thought: I wasn’t expecting too much from this restaurant but I’d been wanting to go for a while because I love Greek food.  The food was really nice; freshly made houmous, a greek salad and pitta to dunk for starters, but we asked for it to arrive with our main.  I ordered the meatballs, expecting them to be in a sauce, but to my suprise they were little sausage like things.  They don’t look appetizing but they were quite tasty, basically like little kebabs.  There was so much food that we couldn’t eat it all so we carried home two little doggy bags which the waiters were more than happy to do.

Restaurant: The restaurant itself is quite big inside and decorated with some interesting Greek art.  We were sat next to a wall full of pictures with what looked like a George Michael impersonator, which was quite funny.  There is also a big chariot placed outside the restaurant which gives a nice touch!

Price: For two of us the bill came to around £35, which at just under £20 each, is fine.  This was without ordering any alcohol though (we stuck to soft drinks!).

Rate: 6.5/10
Lovely staff, nice food but nothing special!
