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.
