We eat it fresh or grilled, in our pies and salads, with our meze or even with watermellon – we love our halloumi any way imaginable!
Souvlaki with tzatziki, an all time classic, that most of us can’t even go a week without!
Do we even need to say anything about how much we love our Sheftalia? It’s one of those classic dishes that’s always served in Cypriot homes.
Another classic, that “yiayia” (grandma) makes best, especially when prepared with the spring leaves of young vines.
5. Loukanika Krasata
Often served with meze, sliced or fried, but also used in the cooking of a variety of traditional dishes. Yum.
6. Makaronia tou Fournou
The ultimate comfort food.
This is a dish of slow baked lamb, which is cooked in a sealed oven in the garden, this way the meat cooks completely in its own juices and tastes delicious.
Fun fact, the dish got its name from the word ‘kleftis’ which means robber, and it is said that in the past, mountain men would cook their stolen meat in sealed underground ovens.
8. Fish Meze
We love our “Meze”, being the foodies we are. Of course, we love the fact that the food just keeps on coming and coming all night long, but the thing about a “Meze” is thats it’s more than just about food, it’s about company and socialising. We love to enjoy good food, with good company and a “meze” is just perfect for that.
One of the most popular Cypriot sweets, love in our tummies.
Loukoumades, in other words little bites of heaven.
