How fun is it watching the (overly excessive we think) Instagram stories of all your friends currently enjoying a European summer holiday while you slog it out at the office. Yep, not that fun.
HOWEVER, we bring you news of the next best thing. Greek food, of which there is not enough on our golden shores in our opinion. Luckily Robina Town Centre newbie Zeus Street Greek is putting a stop to that with a delicious assortment of eats that’ll have you hot footing it over there quick smart.
Because get this friends, there are Haloumi Mac and Cheese Balls and you can dip them in harissa aioli and step aside because all of them are ours. Sorry, we’re calm.
Not only those though, the main attraction are the pitas and they are the goods. We think lamb is the place to start so grab yourself The Zeus which has yes, lamb, plus smoky eggplant dip, Aegean slaw, onion and parsley. Taste sensation.
If you’re in the market for a different meat, perhaps go for the Harissa Schnitzel with chicken, harissa aioli, quinoa tabouli and white cabbage.
All the meaty versions are made with flame-grilled goodness served straight from the spit and that is some mouth-watering stuff.
Oh AND there’s a soft shell crab with rocket, fennel slaw, caper dill aioli and mint and it may just be our new favourite thing in the whole world. Of course there are pork and vegetarian options so you can go back for more every day of the week if you like.
For sides, because obviously you need sides, you should sample the Loaded Yia Yia’s Chips. They’re covered in slow cooked beef brisket, harissa aioli, smoky yoghurt, feta and fresh sliced chilli. Or, if you’re shredding for summer, give the Roasted Cauliflower salad with smoky yoghurt, pomegranate and mint a go.
It’s all amazing and here’s some even better news, this Saturday the 4th of August, Zeus Street Greek will be serving up free pitas as part of ‘I Love Free Pita Day’ which is one of the best days ever obviously. They’ll be giving away freebies from 12pm to 3pm and they’ll donate $2 to OzHarvest – Australia’s number one food rescue organisation.
Freebies will include the tasty Tzimmy Classic Chicken and the Lamb Pitas and they’ll be available for free until sold out.
So you better beat us there is all we’re saying.
