Greeka Kouzina ♥ ♥

We live in the south and don't usually like to travel beyond Makati for food, but it was Kim's birthday and Kim is special. 

Kim is also my brother's fiancée and has been his girlfriend for lemme see... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9… 10 YEARS!!!

Or is it 11? Lol! :)

Love the colored lamps but not the supercramped supernoisy dining room. Ugh.

Fig Roka Salata - sweet figs, walnuts, sundried tomatoes on a bed of arugula and mixed greens.
Move over, Cyma (who is, by the way, always out of arugula), meet my new favorite Roka Salata

Spanakopita - light and 98% fat free phyllo pastry baked with spinach, feta and greek herbs.
 This was lacking in flavor and feta.

 Keftedes - lamb meatballs. Dry and tasteless.



IMG 7384

Paidakia - grilled lamb cutlets marinated in Greeka's signature spices.
Now this one I enjoyed down to the bones. Tasty and gamey. Eat with your hands.

Arni Lemonato - Greeka's bestseller. 5 hour roast lamb that falls off the bone.

Indeed, I needed only to do a little tug with my fork and all the meat just fell off the bone! Beauty!

Greek Couscous Salad - meh



IMG 7400

Watercress Pasta - okay lah but needs some punch



IMG 7409

Baklava - layered phyllo with pistachios, walnuts and cashews, topped with guiltless Greek yogurt.
This is the bomb!!! I said I didn't want to order any dessert (yes, I said that! *gasps!!!*), but
I finished every bit of this. Anyway, the menu said "guiltless" so there was no need to feel guilty.

And the only reason why I didn't want to order dessert is because we brought cakes.
Cravings Devil's Food Cake and Mrs. Yulo's Cheesecake that I proudly designed myself! Hahaha!
Read about it here :P

Happy Birthday, Kim!!! :)



I would have given 3 hearts to the roka salata, lamb dishes and baklava, but the dining experience at Greeka was just too stressful! The place was jam-packed and people were waiting EVERYWHERE!

Every nook, every cranny, EVERYWHERE!!!
