Mr Souvlaki, Pernera, Established 2015

Mr. Souvlaki
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 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 …

As far as I know, this is the only take-away shack in the area cooking this way and the attention to detail is what makes it so special, using only the finest cuts of fresh pork or chicken which is diced into bite sized cubes and passed onto a stainless steel skewer and turned slowly over real charcoal, then served in a fresh, warmed pitta bread, and trimmed with traditional Cypriot salad of fine cut onion, cucumber and tomato and course chopped parsley and finally, topped off with a few pickles … mmmm!

It’s an Art
The Chefs have a magic touch, so what you’ll get is close to perfection.  They call it an art, and who am I to argue? … explaining that first you need to chose the best cuts of meat, have the temperature of the coals just right and know how to season them.  Laughing; the boss said “but the art is in the turning, it’s all in the wrist action” 😉

Kebabs & More
On the menu there’s pork, chicken, sheftalies, mixed kebabs  or massive pork chops, lamb cutlets, village halloumi, mushrooms, black olives, and you must try my new favourite, their unique Mediterranean Special kebab, I had one on my last visit and it was delicious … There’s also Chips and Dips plus a Veggie Kebab for you veggie lovers and plenty of cold drinks in the fridge …

Delivery Service
It’s a take away and delivery service but with a few tables on the veranda, to sit and wait for your food or maybe choose to nibble there if you prefer and you can even watch the footie on the big screen … there’s a little train ride for the nippers … and I really love the hygienic hand cleansers on the table, great idea !

You’ll find them at the top of Pernera, under the lemon tree, in front of Home Bargains Store, might as well grab a bargain while you’re there … give them a try, you wont be sorry, and tell them Tony at What’s On Said you can have some extra pickles …
