Souvla Greek Restaurant, Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong
Souvla is a newish contemporary Greek restaurant opened in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong which is part of the Concept Creations group who is also behind Tapeo, Frites and Chica. From memory, the British gastropub Harringtons used to be here.
I haven’t eaten a lot of Greek food and in Hong Kong, the options are very limited. I was here for lunch with a couple of girlfriends, and for lunch, Souvla offers diners a lunch buffet with mainly vegetarian starters and desserts. You can also add main courses such as chicken, fish, pork or rib-eye for an extra cost pending of your choice.
The ladies all opt for the buffet, and the salad looked absolutely wonderful.
I wouldn’t be able to tell you all the different types of salads but doesn’t this plate look colourful? Everything on the plate was excellent – beetroot, the carrots, the greek salad and the beans. I am pretty sure I went back for some more.
I wanted some protein also in the diet, so ordered chicken which was nicely grilled, and served with tzatziki which I loved.
J ordered the sea bass which was the fish of the day which was served with avocado and she thoroughly enjoyed it.
We couldn’t help but order some pita bread and it was fluffy and light.
Dessert for those who are allergic to nuts were limited, but still there were four to choose from, the bread and butter pudding – yum! The donut I loved but then again I am a huge fan of donuts, and baklava which was a little on the sweet side for me but still good.
It was a wonderful lunch amongst girl friends, our main topic of conversation was sleep training our child! Oh dear! What has my world become? Deliciously full and satisfied, I waddled back to work hoping for a nap but alas, no.
Service was polite and friendly. Really enjoyed lunch, had a quick look at the a la carte menu and everything sounded wonderful. No doubt we will be back to try the dinner menu.
