12B Compensation Road Ballito

BALLITO@NIKOSGREEK.CO.ZA

Nikos Greek 032 586 0493

The menu features mezze, dips, salads, plated souvlaki (skewered and coal-fired meat), yiros (meat in pita wraps) and kreas (a variety of meaty dishes) – some traditional, and others with modern twists.

 

If you’re in the sharing mood, the mezze is the way to go. The Santorini-baked feta in phyllo pastry is the perfect balance of crunchy and soft and is paired with a delicious drizzle of sticky honey and grapes, for a hit of sweetness. The tender brinjal stack with a crumble of feta can also be shared or makes for a great vegetarian-friendly main. The tiropita (cheese pies) and spanakopita are top notch and generously stuffed with their perfectly seasoned fillings.

 

The pita breads deserve their own special mention. Even though they’re suggested as a side, the slightly charred tender dough is good enough to eat as a main, paired with a bowl of tangy tzatziki, rich hummus, or mildly-spiced htipiti (a dip made of roasted red pepper and feta).

Moving on to the heartier fare, the souvlaki is generously plated with two large skewers of extremely tender coal-fired chicken, beef fillet or pork, with the option to add an extra skewer. These come with chips, pita bread, salad and your choice of dip.

 

If you can’t decide, try one of the yiros. Hefty chunks of meat are wrapped in pita bread and come in several variations. The Corfu version is filled with meat and fries for extra bulk, while the Mykonos one comes with a spicy hit of htipiti dip. If you still want a side, the lemony roasted potatoes are delicious, and the spiced roasted cauliflower head is a healthier option.

 

As for the desserts – if you have any room left – the halva ice cream is great, as is the Turkish delight, but the baklava takes the prize. The modern deconstructed pud is comprised of corrugated phyllo served with ice cream, mixed nuts, warm sticky syrup and a spicy flurry of cinnamon. It’s a great send-off, especially when accompanied by a cup of proper Greek coffee.
