    A hellenic history

    Greek is one of the oldest cuisines in the world, dating back some 4,000 years ago to the time of Ancient Greece. While it has evolved and taken in a number of influences, Greek cuisine still sticks to its ancient roots, and at Greek restaurants in Edinburgh you can enjoy dishes freshly prepared using age-old cooking methods. Olive oil is the most characteristic and ancient element of Greek cooking, and to this day it is still a staple in the Greek kitchen, used in almost every dish. Explore Ancient Greece via the menus of Edinburgh’s many Greek restaurants with Quandoo today.

    Good things come in small packages

    One of the best things about Greek cuisine is the meze or mezedes – small, bite-size plates of food typically served with ouzo, a popular anise-flavoured aperitif. Going out for mezedes is a great way to socialise due to its communal nature and at Greek restaurants in Edinburgh, you can tuck into small plates like dolmades (vine leaves stuffed with rice and fresh herbs), saganaki (pan-fried Greek cheese) and melitzanes tiganites (crispy fried eggplant), as well as tasty dips like hummus, tzatziki and taramasalata paired with some freshly baked pita bread. Whether it is for a meal in itself or served as a starter before tucking into your main, a selection of different mezedes are a must-try when dining at Edinburgh’s Greek restaurants.

    Dishes you can’t miss at Edinburgh’s Greek restaurants

    Greek cuisine is known for its amazing meat dishes such as kleftiko (lamb, first marinated in garlic, olive oil and lemon juice and then slow-cooked to fall off the bone perfection), souvlaki (small pieces of meat grilled on a skewer) and keftedes (mouthwatering meatballs cooked with herbs and onions). Surrounded by coast, Greek cuisine is also abundant with fresh fish and seafood. Try dishes like marida (little fish that are lightly fried and then eaten whole) and kalamarakia (fried calamari) at Greek restaurants in Edinburgh. If you’re vegetarian, don’t worry because Greek cuisine caters equally to meat-free diners with dishes like vegetable moussaka and spanakopita, a traditional spinach and feta pie.
