Snacks

Olympus Restaurant, Protaras

I met Flouris in his early days at Good Fortune Restaurant in Ayia Napa.  Now in a prime position at the top of the strip in Protaras, son Andreas has joined the family business and together they make an awesome team, bringing you that traditional Cypriot hospitality that made Cyprus famous ... putting first class customer service as their number one priority !

Rodolfos Butchers & Delicatessen, Paralimni

They'll ask you how you'd like your meat, tidied, trimmed and cut, always doing that first before they weigh it and once you get to know these guys, you just say things like 'extra fine ground beef for bolognese, for four people' and they know how much to give you ... bear in mind they're Cypriot portions 😉 ... I often run through an order for my BBQ's and how many people are coming and Andreas says I think that's enough ... brilliant!

Speedy Gonzales Mexican Bar & Restaurant, Pernera

... let me explain, here the Mexican food isn't hot, it's refreshing, in fact, you can request your selection to your taste, so everyone is happy.  The chef is of course Mexican with over 12 years experience, his specialities are the Burritos, Chimichanga, and an array of Fajitas ... but the menu is huge so you'll find it hard to choose, all served by the drop dead gorgeous scandi crew ... who'll serenade you on your birthday using the kitchen utensils as instruments ... it's just brilliant !

AlcoHall Cava & Off Licence, Kapparis

Open 365 days a year, with an extensive selection of Wines, Beers & Spirits at wholesale prices with a walk in Cava, wines chilled to perfection ... and munchies ... what more could you want? A Cash Point, yep they got that too ...

Sirena Bay Beach Bar & Restaurant

... some with a cultural twist, tbh these days, at Sirena Bay, you should expect the unexpected !

Popcorn Girl, Larnaca

Naturally, while I was chatting to Chris, I had to try a few of the flavours 😉 and have to say I was amazed by the variety of tastes that you can add to Kettle Corn, Salted or Sweet ... The first I just had to try was the Marshmallow, just amazing, next the Cranberry, delicious, I took some home ...

Misohoro Taverna, Dherynia

They called it 'MisoHoro', as it in the centre of the village, I always thought it meant Half a Dance ? ... ha! when you leave here you'll only just about be able to walk 😉

Mr. Souvlaki, Pernera

When the boys called me to tell me they're opening a traditional BBQ shack in Pernera, I was excited to say the least ... you know, there's absolutely nothing like a traditional Cypriot Kebab, it's almost indigenous to Cyprus. That forgettable aroma of fresh pork or chicken, finely dusted with oregano and sea salt, slowly cooking over real wood charcoals is unforgettable, and the flavours at Mr. Soulvlaki are tantalising to say the least ...

Jade Garden Chinese Restaurant and Take Away, Paralimni

If you don't know this place, you've been missing out for about 8 years, because without doubt this is one of the best Chinese restaurants I have ever eaten in.  It's a family run eatery and Si, manages the place with such finesse, the staff compliment with service of the highest order ...

The Brewery Bar and Restaurant, Protaras

I've been to all their venues and have to say they're in a class of their own.
