Victoria is a richly multicultural state, with a sizeable Greek immigrant community. Family-run Greekrestaurants in Victoria have been a key part of the state's culinary fabric for decades. Traditional Greekrestaurants and tavernas still remain, now joined by casual modern cafes and bistros serving contemporary versions of favourite recipes. Souvlaki places offering grilled meats and vegetables flavoured with herbs are still a popular dining option in Victoria. It's a style of cooking that appeals to the Australian love of barbecue and a relaxed atmosphere.
