SOUVLAKI STORY: A TALE OF HUGE PORTIONS
Sometimes it is in the simplest of places that one gets closest to hearing the story of a country. And speaking of simple places, Souvlaki Story is definitely a picture of simplicity. Souvlaki Story is a restaurant serving your resident Mediterranean and Greek meals located at 37 Enoplon Dinameon, Mykonos Town 846 00, in Greece. If you’re real hungry, looking for fast service, no thrills, no frills, and cheap food, Souvlaki Story will not disappoint.
Souvlaki Story isn’t for fancy and elevated eating. It’s just a good ole regular, roll-up-your-sleeves-and-dig-in kind of place. But just cause it isn’t fancy doesn’t mean it has to be dingy, too. The area is really clean, their outdoor sitting is along a pathway and is also quite good, and the atmosphere is welcoming, as are the staff. The food is relatively cheap as well. It’s a meek little canteen-like restaurant for various customers and is a great place to get your first taste of genuine, unassuming Greek food.
Contrasting the humble atmosphere and food items served at the Souvlaki Story are their grand servings for the meals. It was wrong of me to mention that Souvlaki Story has no thrills because if you see their portions, it’ll definitely be a thrill once you see it coming closer to your table. If you simply look at what we have ordered which is the Meal Mix Combo for Two, you’d see that their portions are huge. Instead of a meal for two, the portions to me felt like they were made for about 2 more people!
Aside from huge portions, as mentioned earlier, the restaurant is a great place to experience local Greek cuisine. The Meal Mix Combo for Two that we had seemed like it has everything. From gyros, and souvlakis, to tzatziki, and even the Greek salad, just this one order is jam-packed with every staple Greek food there is. Try out their souvlakis and pair them with a nice cold glass of beer for a filling meal. And yes, they do also serve alcohol. As a bonus, the meals are great for that pulsing hangover after a night out of drinking.
Speaking of a night out, the Souvlaki Story is open until quite late into the night and well into the morning. They’re usually open at around 11 AM and stay open until 7 AM in the morning of the next day. This means that if you’re out and about in the late evening and you just got done partying, Souvlaki Story is there waiting for you, ready to serve heaps of the perfect comfort food. Aside from being open 20/7, the restaurant also has two branches. Both of these branches are easy to find within the town of Mykotos so you don’t have to worry about missing out on them.
Aside from having these branches, they also own Trio Bambini, an ice cream store located at Mitropoleos, 846 00, still in Greece, of course. They make handmade ice cream/gelato/yogurt, perfect for eating beneath the beating down of the afternoon sun. It helps that the shop is located near a body of water so a cooling breeze is present and blowing around the shop. Aside from ice cream and gelato, they also serve crepes both sweet and savory as well as some omelets.
They say that every place has its own story. So if Souvlaki Story has its own tale, it’d be a book with a modest and simple cover that hides behind its covers the tales of grandiosity inside it. For one of the best gyros you could ever have in town, Souvlaki Story is the place for you.
