By Diana Azas


– Where do you like to enjoy your morning coffee?

At my beloved grandmother’s house or at Nero Blue café.


-Which is your favorite city yard?

I couldn’t describe it as a yard; I really enjoy Molos’ seafront promenade, one of the most beautiful places in the island!


Where can you find the best souvlaki?

I think that you can find the best souvlaki at Giorgos No2, towards Griva Digeni Avenue, close to Saint Nicolaos’ church.


-Where do you find authentic meze dishes?

Definitely at AMEK Kapsalou tavern, towards Agias Phylakseos Avenue in Limassol. Here, quality comes through quantity!


– A restaurant that holds a special place in your heart? A recommended dish?

The Wok N Roll restaurant for authentic, Asian dishes. I usually order Ramen Noodles.


– Which is your favorite kind of cuisine and where you can enjoy it in Cyprus?

Homemade Cyprus’ dishes are always a top choice for me! And I really enjoy the meals prepared at my grandma’s house; I wouldn’t change them for the world’s fanciest restaurant!


And the best, timeless place to hang out?

Perama Music stage, without a second thought! It combines great atmosphere, with all-time-classic rock music, beers and good company!


-Any cocktails recommendations?

I enjoy amazing cocktails at Madame, opposite to Rialto Theatre in Limassol.


-Where do you usually go for delightful sweets?

At my mother’s house, either for traditional spoon sweets or chocolate cake!


-Which place holds a special place in your heart?

An orchard, close to my grandmother’s house, which unfortunately, gave its place to a block of flats.
