If you haven't discovered the sheer, mouthwatering joy of Greek cuisine yet, we really suggest you should – and we've scouted out the places to try it. But you can also try to recreate the flavours at home with this recipe from Hungry Donkey.
"Souvlaki actually means small skewer in Greek (souvla means spit)," says the restaurant's owner, Markos Tsimikalis. "It dates back centuries and was always an easy thing to eat on the go. I remember when I was a kid those small holes in the wall in central Athens and in small mountain villages, literally no more than 5-7square meters, selling just that: chicken and pork souvlaki with bread & generous squirts of lemon. As we get into summer this is a great bbq dish to prepare for everyone. Serve it with a nice Greek salad, tzatziki, pita bread to soak up the juices, and retsina – trust me, you don’t need anything else!"
