Mediterranean food is not only one of the world’s healthiest cuisines, it’s also the new ‘in-style cuisine’ in Bangkok, Thailand. With a number of Mediterranean restaurants popping up all over the city, if you love Greek, Italian or Spanish cuisine, start off with these three wonderful Bangkok Mediterranean restaurants. Great food, delicious wine and a fun environment.
Souvlaki Greek Grill – As the name suggests, Souvlaki serves an incredible variety of delicious Greek food. Located in the trendy Silom area of Bangkok, Souvlaki is the latest Mediterranean restaurant to be talked about as a ‘must-eat place’.
At Souvlaki Greek Grill, you’ll enjoy an excellent variety of Greek foods – chicken or pork gyros, lamb kebabs, beef meatballs, lamb dolmades, spanakopita (spinach and feta cheese pie), humus, grilled monkfish skewers, lamb souvlaki and, of course, stupendous Greek desserts like baklava or Greek yoghurt with honey and fresh fruit.
Souvlaki Greek Grill also does a nice selection of vegetarian dishes and salads, if meat just isn’t your thing.
Prices at Souvlaki Greek Grill are inexpensive, particularly for the large portions, the staff is friendly and attentive, and they always have some excellent daily specials, where you can try items on the menu you might not necessarily try.
