Twisted Pizzeria
Last year, I was invited by Vangelis and Dimi to Bites 7060 in Livadia, to witness a challenge to make the Biggest Vegan Burger in Cyprus, so I couldn’t resist.  Just their name intrigued me enough to find out more, so I asked why ‘Bites 7060’, Vangelis said, “we were going to call it ‘Bites the Crust’ but we simply choose our post code”.  Vangelis explained; “it’s a traditional pizzeria with an international twist, and we’re specialising in Vegan Bites with a little imagination but the menu has lots of culinary twists” … Their success was commended in 2021 by RestaurantGuru.com 

Pizza Perfect
Vangelis said he had extensive training in Naples, not at a collage, but at an academy in a traditional pizzeria, with top pizza chefs.  The rewards; pizzas as authentic as you can get this side of Italy, the dough, 4 simple ingredients, hand made, then fermented for 48 Hours before use, a Neapolitan influence, which enhances the flavour, then topped with your favourite toppings and baked to perfection in a traditional stone fired revolving Pizza oven … the result a thin base with a light fluffy crust.  I have to say they’re delicious and only last year he added a New York Style Pizza to the menu, which is a thinner rolled out base without a crust!

The Challenge
I watched as this awesome pizza chef showed me the specially made 50 cm bread roll, which btw weighed 1.89 Kg and they toasted it on the grill, meanwhile the girls prepared almost a whole lettuce, 2 big tomatoes, 20 slices of vegan cheddar cheese, about a kilo of onion rings, chips and their Bites Burger Sauce, a secret recipe of course … meanwhile the vegan burger was cooking on the other grill, I wondered how Vangelis was going to flip it over, the solution, the pizza spatula, brilliant … when finished, the burger weighed in at just over 5 kg in total and I had a 12th of it, with some chips and it was delicious … Vangelis has laid the gauntlet, any challengers?

Vegan
Vangelis met Dimi while he was backpacking around Australia and they moved here in 2019, their dream to open this eaterie, something a little different, their menu quite unique, the variety excellent to say the least … for example the Beyond Meat vegan burgers and the Vegan Gyros wraps, similar to a Donna kebab but 100% vegan!  In fact you’ll find lots of new vegan choice from their Mighty Kitchen!

International
To make it truly international they then added a few Mexican Dishes like Tacos and Burritos to spice things up a bit, both with 4 different fillings, even their Guacamole sauce is homemade, another secret recipe … I must say this place is a mine of new ideas and it looks like they’ve got it sorted! … Check out their reviews here …

Menu
The menu is divided into two, for meat lovers and veggies and vegans too, assuring me they’ll never cross contaminate, the two cuisines are never mixed, cooked on separate grills, even with separate tongs and surfaces always washed, nothing animal ever goes in the fryer, so meat never touches vegetarian or vegan cooking.  Oh and everything for their pizzas, except the vegetables, are imported from Italy.  btw, you’ll find their latest menu, on the Foodie App and I have to say there’s quite a few things that I really wanna try …

Beyond Meat
Naturally you’ll find a selection of Beyond Meat dishes, their Beyond Meat Burger, full of protein and without gluten or soy is a Beyond Meat vegan patty, served with lettuce, tomato, onions, gherkins, homemade spiced vegan mayo.  Their BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Roll is BBQ Pulled Jackfruit coleslaw and BBQ Sauce on a multigrain roll which looks delicious and their Beyond Meat Burrito is spicy jackfruit, brown rice, black beans, sweetcorn, topped with house made guacamole, house made pico de gallo salsa and vegan cheddar cheese.

Meat Lovers
The Bites Beef Mince Tacos are really delicious, and on my last visit I tried the BBQ Pulled Pork Bao Bun Rolls and they were amazing! … also served as a wrap if you prefer or why not jazz it up with a Pulled Pork Burrito or Tacos.  Naturally they also serve all your favourite salami and cured hams imported all the way from Italy!

Sides & Kids
The Sweet Potato Fries, were cool and they also serve Potato Wedges, Onion Rings, Spring Rolls … oh and the Vegan Honey Mustard Sauce is to die for, so too the Mozzarella Sticks a must with any dish, but my fav has to be the BBQ Chicken Wings … and they have many choices for the kids too! … Naturally there’s a cold drinks fridge full of your fav soft drinks!
