Destination Staycation: Greece

Destination Staycation: Greece

Can’t quite make it to Corfu? Saving a few hundred pounds while still experiencing Greek culture a mere stone’s throw from home has never been easier. This summer be sure to enjoy mediterranean food, drinks and entertainment transported to London.

The Life Goddess, a combined café and restaurant, prides itself on a commitment to providing the most authentic greek atmosphere. There’s not too many places where you can find both Greek cold brew coffee and an extensive wine selection sure to entice. Pop into this cozy establishment any time of day.

The Hungry Donkey, near Petticoat Lane Market, specializes in greek street food but in a modern, inviting interior. Focus is on creating simple dishes with quality ingredients.

Take cooking into your own hands. Kolokythokeftedes (otherwise known as zucchini fritters) is a common Greek speciality meant to be crispy on the outside and soft at the center. Frying the fritters in olive oil keeps the Kolokythokeftedes from being too unhealthy. Pro tip: combine your fritters with the yogurt based tzatziki. Recipe here!

Friday and Saturday nights at Elysée bring a little bit of Greece to London. Popular Greek hits, old and new, can be prominently heard with the celebration going well into the night. Should hunger strike, the club is located just above the renowned greek restaurant by the same name.
