-Where can you find the best souvlaki?-At ‘Karvounolixoudies tou Ovelix’.

-Where do you find authentic meze dishes?-At ‘Mezostrati’ tavern. A nice ambience restaurant with amazing meze dishes and music.

-Could you reveal a well-hidden city gem? -There are many cosy places islandwide- I cannot simply choose one.

-A restaurant that holds a special place in your heart? A recommended dish? -Without a doubt, my favourite restaurant is Εpicouros Food For The Soul, where you can find exceptional food, made by fresh and high quality materials and based on original recipes, as Mrs. Rania is preparing home-cooked meals with love. My favourite dishes are the Western burger, the Salmon filet and the Superfood salad.

-Which is your favourite kind of cuisine and where you can enjoy it in Cyprus? -Since 2001, Εpicouros Food For The Soul offers high-quality, gourmet cold sandwiches, based on our own recipes. We bake our own breads every single day, very early in the morning, at 6:00am. The Continental sandwich is highly recommended.

-Where do you usually have the best cocktails? -At Lost and Found.

-Where do you usually go for delightful sweets? -At Εpicouros Food For The Soul, for Frozen Fruits yogurt.

-Which corner of the island holds a special place in your heart? -My old neighbourhood. I remember that after school we used to gather at Epicouros with my friends. Definitely, we have made the most important memories of their lives there.
