Discover a rich culinary tradition at Melbourne Greek restaurants
Historically, cuisine from Greece has embraced frugality and simplicity, focusing on quality ingredients and simple preparation for hearty dishes that don't skimp on flavour. Vegetarian dishes and meals crafted around seafood were stalwarts of the cuisine of Greece for many centuries, although technological and agricultural advancements during the 20th century meant that meat became more readily available and affordable, adding even more variety to this deliciously diverse cuisine. Today, you'll find plenty of meaty feasts on offer at Greek restaurants when dining in Melbourne. Love lamb? Tuck into succulent chops fresh from the grill, or warm yourself up with a generous bowl of slow-cooked stew. Looking for something lighter? Chicken souvlaki is an ideal choice if you're in the market for a no frills feast with bags of flavour. For the more daring diner in Melbourne, try Greek restaurants specialising in fusion cuisine that combine the best of the Mediterranean with more far flung influences.
