Take us to Greece...well, to Plaka Cresta that is... | Best of Joburg
If you love great Greek food, then you will want to check out
Plaka who are celebrating 25 years of yummy, and the family – owned restaurant chain have just recently launched a brand new and refreshed look to not only their menu but also to their flagship Cresta store.
Plaka pays tribute to the old historical neighbourhood of Athens with the same name and the heartbeat of Greece’s modern capital on the slopes of the Acropolis, and the refreshed décor and new menu pay tribute to their
long-standing philosophy of modern traditional Greek fair.
“It’s this tapestry of traditional culture within a modern society that we continue to bring to Plaka in South Africa,” explains Angelo Haitas, founder, and owner of Plaka.
“We’ve designed our menus around the Greek way of life and Plaka’s ethos of “eating together”,” says Adel Nofal and Nishall Iswarlall, Plaka Cresta Franchisee Partners. “So, we’ve included a number of family meals – “The Family Table” is a selection of popular, hearty meals generously served with a variety of salads and side orders for family or friends to share whilst offering unbeatable value.”
All your yummy favourites are still on the menu however, like their mouth-watering calamari, pastitsio, kleftiko, whole grilled line fish, prawns and lamb chops.
But are also some brand new contemporary dishes such as honey-mustard pork fillet and a delicious family-sized portion of fisherman’s pasta that have found their way on to the extensive menu.
If Greek street foods such as yiros, souvlaki, and toasted pitas are your thing, then you are in the right place for sure.
The bottomless soda is also a nice menu add-on and each dish has a magical dose of Greek tradition to make it authentic and delicious, and we are loving the Family Table menu right now – which includes dishes such as the yummiest Greek lamb chops served with salad and flatbread.
The restaurant décor matches the menu theme perfectly – think blue mosaic, touches of bright bougainvillea and softwood finishes, and even better you can take a piece of Plaka home with you, their delicacies including olives, olive oil, pastas, and more are available to purchase in store.
