Rio’s Piri Piri Chicken, Paralimni
Evi continued; "It all started back in 1912, when Wilbur Scoville charted the comparative heat of different chillis. The greater the number of Scouville units the hotter the chilli, but don't worry, we have 8 Different Flavours of Piri Piri sauces, from Zesty Lemon and Herb to Extreme with everything in between!" Piri Piri of course means Pepper Pepper, my favourites are the Hot & Spicy and the Jerk Chicken, OMG!

Taverna Ropas, Paralimni
I've been eating at Ropas since my first season here, the year they opened in 1991 … It's one of my favourite places to go if I fancy truly authentic Cypriot Meze. Costas and his wife Nikki have of course become very good friends and I have to say this guy oozes traditional Cypriot hospitality. So too, Nikki and son Stelios out front and daughter Flora helping Nikki in the kitchen, tbh this family team is really hard to beat!

DeJaVu aka Bill & Ems Band, Protaras
I was delighted to be invited to catch Bill and Ems, aka Dejavu, playing live at Lithos Bar & Grill in Larnaca. On that night they were joined by Andreas, their drummer, and as a trio, they go by the name 'Strings Attached' I really loved this gig so much, especially their covers of Fever, and Hotel California, so I grabbed the chance to ask Bill if we could get together for a chat.
