Embrace Greek food and culture at Koutouki in Leichardt. Mezze and music is the tag line for Koutouki, a traditional Greek restaurant in Leichardt. As soon as you enter the restaurant, you recognise it’s a traditional spot with the décor and art on the walls. Staff are friendly and welcoming and showcase that Greek generosity of spirit. We are seated fast, and it’s all set up nicely for our friends birthday, where we’re having a set menu.
The food transports you back to Greece, and it’s to be shared amongst your friends. It is good to note that 90% is Gluten Free. We share a range of mezze between the table; beginning with a Greek Salad (tomatoes, cucumber, olives, onion and feta), followed by the trio of dips; tarama, tzatziki, spicy fetta and eggplant, served with pita bread.
The entrées were sized pieces of beautifully cooked haloumi, spanakopita, and pita, fried calamari – so beautiful, as well as the grilled octopus with oregano, olive oil and lime, and prawn skewers.
To share were giant mixed grill platters of lamb, pork, sausage, all sitting on a plate of moreish oregano seasoned fries. Dessert was the famous baklava, or filo pastry, with walnuts and syrup.This was a lot of food and we were so full by the end of the meal and enjoyed it so much.
