We were quite surprised upon entering the Hellenic House to see a vast hall where the greek community gather for conversations and their games of chest...or some other game perhaps... We suppose this is the original Greek Club? The interior is rather dim so we decided to sit outdoors right at a far end, after placing our orders at the counter.
This was another surprise to get complimentary basket of fresh bread to munch on before our meals arrive. The bread was crusty like a vienna loaf and almost as light as a vietnamese baguette.
But of course Mr food hunter had to order something out of the ordinary for himself. The Sheftalies i.e. Cypriot Sausages, like all other dishes comes with either salad or chips. The 3 little sausages are definetly on the small side but luckily for Mr food hunter, Miss food hunter doesn't eat alot of meat so he got some of hers. The sausages themselves are quite unique, there are chunks of meat inside as opposed to the usual mince and has a distinctive parsley flavour. The dish was nice but somewhat unbalanced with the massive serve of chips.
Miss food hunter on the other hand stuck with her Chicken Souvlakia with Greek salad. The chicken thighs were so moist, full of flavour and charred very nicely with all the essential yummy crispy bits. The Greek salad came with an intact fetta that tasted nothing like what is served at other Greek joints...Yum Miss food hunter had hers with the crusty loaf. The salad was dressed extra lemony.
Hellenic House may look a little run-down & un-inviting but its construction- elevated, allows diners to enjoy their meals with a little view outside. Service is attentive and we even had bottled cold water brought out to us...
