Lo­cal food: Our picks of five of the best sou­vlakis go­ing round

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TASSIE LIVING -

There are two types of sou­vlakis in the world – clas­sic souvs, great for 3am munchies or some­thing a lit­tle bit fancy. Both are equally de­li­cious so try these rec­om­men­da­tions...

Mezethes Greek Tav­erna

Mezethes’ long stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion as one of the best Greek restau­rants in Ho­bart is no ac­ci­dent and their sou­vlakis are no dif­fer­ent. Try the Arni Sou­vlaki ($10.50) for an au­then­tic Greek wrap, with spitroasted char­coal lamb on a bed of let­tuce, toma­toes, onions and tzatziki wrapped up in pita bread.

77 Sala­manca Place, Sala­manca, Ho­bart

Ur­ban Greek

If you’re feel­ing like some­thing a lit­tle gourmet, do your­self a favour and grab a take­away Aris­totelis sou­vlaki (at just $11) from one of Ho­bart’s hottest new eater­ies. This veg­e­tar­ian op­tion in­cludes grilled haloumi, beet­root dip, let­tuce, to­mato, onion, olives and chips all wrapped in a Greek pita bread. 103 Mur­ray St, Ho­bart

Mykonos Take­away

This fam­ily-owned Sandy Bay in­sti­tu­tion has been the sav­ing grace of late nights and early morn­ings for Ho­bart par­ty­go­ers for years. Fill­ings in their clas­sic sou­vlakis (which start from $6) in­clude chicken, beef, veg­e­tar­ian or ro­tis­serie lamb with tra­di­tional filling for a full and pow­er­ful flavour. 165 Sandy Bay Rd, Sandy Bay

FI­LOS Cafe Res­tau­rant

Fi­los is a rel­a­tively new ad­di­tion to the El­iz­a­beth Street eatery precinct but they have al­ready es­tab­lished a rep­u­ta­tion for mouth wa­ter­ing tra­di­tional giros sou­vlakis ($11). Each souv is wrapped in a Greek pita and served with salad and tzatziki.

39 El­iz­a­beth St, Ho­bart

Bugsy’s Take­away

While Bugsy’s Take­away might be a lit­tle way out of the city, you’d be silly not to take the trip for a clas­sic take­away sou­vlaki (for just $8.95) that will hit all the spots. Whether you choose lamb, beef or chicken with am­ple gar­lic sauce, Bugsy’s is well worth go­ing out of your way for.
