a Greek gem in our neighbourhood

In my search for authentic food in Muscat I came across a little gem in Al Khuwair. This new addition to the restaurant world in Muscat is a small, interesting, Greek restaurant off the beaten track.

Owner and chef, Elana, opened the restaurant a few months ago, originally from Greece; she is excited to share her passion for Greek cuisine with everyone in Muscat.

‘Greek Way “kouzina” (cuisine) is about sharing our passion for traditional culinary recipes from Greece.’ – Elana

Beautiful artwork painted lovingly by the well known Mata Kamp, adorns the walls and contributes to the modern, yet authentic Greek atmosphere.

Upon entering the restaurant you a choice of being seated inside the restaurant or at an outside terrace while enjoying a meal or, having a cup of illy coffee.

I arrived at lunch time and was welcomed by Mata and her friendly staff. After being seated I was given a beautifully designed menu and decided to start off with a traditional Greek Salad.

Fresh from the market tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper and onion, topped with calamata olives and creamy feta cheese, dressed in olive oil and oregano.

What a Greek treat.Next up was “Spanakopita”, a Greek spinach pie. Dill and spinach created the perfect marriage of flavours and the feta cheese gave it just enough richness. The homemade filo pastry was perfectly flaky and tasty. The Muscat community recently had the opportunity to attend a fun filo dough pastry course hosted by Chef Elana’s mother and aunt.

The “Slouvaki” was definitely one of my favorites. Soft, thick flat bread stuffed to the brim with Greek spiced chicken, fried potatoes, fresh onion and tomatoes and a tasty sauce. This is comfort food at its best.

Also worth trying, is their breakfast bread “Koulouri”. Incredibly crunchy on the outside with an amazingly soft and slightly chewy centre. “Koulouri” is bread rings covered with toasted sesame seeds and toppped with fresh tomatoes. Delicious!

Why don’t you visit Elana at Greek Way and experience truly authentic Greek “kouzina”. You will not be disappointed.
