Over the years Melbourne has become a multi-cultural city and now boasts of third largest Greek population after Athens and Thessaloniki. So now you can find some of the best Greek food money can buy in the city.
One such place is Jim’s Greek Tavern in Collingwood which has been serving authentic Greek Food as you would find in Greece. It is very simply done up with white walls and their focus is on simplicity. It is quite noisy, unlike any place you would have seen.
However, Melbournians simply love the classic dishes this place serves so you have to book in advance. It operates without a written Menu so you have to have faith in your server even though he may not be Greek.
Just let him take you through the pan fried Saganaki, or Calamari, slow cooked lamb before you make a selection. If you can’t choose he will help you in making the right choice of meat or seafood paired with the right dip. Let him suggest the wine too, I promise you won’t be disappointed. Be assured whether it is the seafood or beetroot or Zucchini chips or even a warm loaf of bread you can be sure of an authentic Greek taste.
If you are in Melbourne or visiting it, don’t miss it for anything in the world.
