Zeus Greek Street provides a Christmas extravaganza with delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
Brisbane Weekender recommend Dip Tria featuring house-made pita bread, with three special dips including Tzatziki (Greek yoghurt, cucumber, roasted garlic and dill), Spicy Feta (Greek feta, roasted capsicum and chilli) and Tarama (cued white fish roe dip).
The pita bread in combination with the flavoursome dip is a satisfying and delightful starter to a Christmas holiday feast.
Zeus Greek Street offer a variety of wraps, including the ‘Uncle ‘Tzimmy’ Classic Pork or Chicken’ (with chips and other ingredients), the ‘Spartan – Chicken’ (with Aegean slaw, preserved lemon mayo and more) and the ‘Stavros Stavrou – Haloumi’ (with Aegean slaw, olive tapenade, caramelised onion and more).
However the ‘Soft Shell – Crab’ pita is charmingly refreshing (especially on a hot summer’s day), enhanced by the coriander and preserved lemon mayo.
After a stylish wrapped pita, we recommend feasting on the nude pots, featuring succulent lamb, pork and chicken.
The standout by far is the chicken pot, sure to be met with awes and excitement across the restaurant once delivered.
The lamb meat is soft enough to run through the fork at first grab, tender and wonderfully flavoursome.
All nude pots are served with a side of tzatziki and lemon.
After much anticipation, an encore of traditional Greek sweets will delight the senses. A selected of Loukoumades (Greek doughnuts with honey, cinnamon and walnuts), Chocolate Loukoumades and Bougatsa (Vanilla bean custard, wrapped in filo pastry, served warm, dusted with cinnamon and icing sugar) are bound to go down a treat.
The desserts are no less than heaven-sent, boasting rich and sweet flavours, perfect for celebrating the Christmas season.
For a godly food experience, Brisbane Weekender recommends Zeus for tasty, and wonderfully simple yet elegant lunch and dinner dining.
