Give me Greek food
On Monday night, I had the opportunity to have dinner at Agapi Greek Cuisine on King William Road in Hyde Park. I have been here once before for a work lunch (a Kotopoulo Souvlaki) and loved the food so I decided to come back and sample some more dishes. It was a cold night, so after a short wait, we moved inside into a cosy, casual but sophisticated interior setting.

I ended up ordering three different dishes: an Octapodi tis Skaras (entrée), an Ami Souvlaki (main) and a Baklava (dessert). My friend, who is a vegetarian, ordered the Yemista, which is basically potatoes served with capsicum and tomato stuffed with rice. While I won't write about this meal, my friend was pleased with her dish.

The Octapodi tis Skaras was the highlight of my night. The perfectly barbecued octopus together with the sweetness of the beetroot, the rich garlicky skordalia, the green leafy salad and the toasty walnuts was a combination made in heaven. I could've eaten a bucketload of this stuff.

Previously, I had eaten a Kotopoulo (chicken) souvlaki and loved it so my expectations for the Ami (lamb) souvlaki were high. While I have a preference chicken, I still enjoyed the well-cooked lamb combined with the lovely roasted potatoes, the pita bread, garden salad and creamy tzatziki.

The Baklava was a wicked blend of flaky pastry, nuts, vanilla, sweet, sweet honey and a delicious pistachio ice cream. It was a wonderful way to finish off a beautiful evening.

I will definitely visit Agapi Greek Cuisine again and recommend you do too.
