The Greek Club’s new menu provides just what we want in winter – warm, hearty meals.
The Greek community of South Brisbane is ever-growing and with it, they bring you the Greek Club. Situated in the white building that can only make your mind wander about a spontaneous Santorini trip, this lively restaurant on Edmonstone Street can’t be missed.
The Greek Club’s new winter menu features classic warm wintery Greek meals infused with the flavour of their very own home-grown herbs. Read on to find out some of the delicious dishes on offer.
The classic warmed pita bread served with tarama, tzatziki, melitzana – a staple for any Greek menu. This simple dish is great to order for the table when you first arrive. You’ll instantly notice how soft and tasty the pita bread is! Our favourite dip would have to be the tarama.
For a light appetizer, the calamari tiyanto (baby squid) (gf) is the way to go. There’s a moment of satisfaction as the crispiness on the outside meeting with the fresh, full flavour of the baby squid on the inside.
The feta saganaki rolled in filo pastry is a winner. Served warm, baked feta cheese is delicately wrapped in filo pastry then drizzled with honey and sesame seeds. This dish will truly melt your heart. If you’ve heard the saying, “Life’s short; eat dessert first” then this dish will follow through without making you feel guilty about tasting the sweet stuff first.
The vine leaves held each dolmade neatly in a little package and provided a flavour not too overpowering, allowing the subtle flavours of the rice and herbs to be enjoyed.
What’s a winter menu without a winter stew to warm you up? The revithia me hirino, a hearty food originating from the mountains of Greece contains chickpeas with pork and vegetables oven baked with tomato salsa in a clay pot.
Souzoukakia is a great dish to be enjoyed all year round. These baked Greek beef meatballs are served in a red salsa with rice. The meatballs had no dryness at all, allowing the meat to melt away in your mouth with each bite.
Spetzofai me loukanika has rustic Greek sausage, eggplant, peppers, capsicum, zucchini and garlic in tomato salsa and topped with feta cheese. The sausage in this dish was full of flavour and was complemented well by the vegetables. Pair this meal with a Greek red wine and you’ll be set for the night!
For a Greek dining experience in Brisbane, make the Greek Club your first destination. Be prepared for a big meal, their dishes will fill you up!
Make sure you start off with the feta saganaki rolled in filo pastry!
