Eat Greek Kouzina - #DFFReviews The Mediterranean Diet

I dine at the Eat Greek Kouzina often, a restaurant that offers authentic Greek food in a casual and relaxed setting.  I love Greek food. Why? It’s simple really; Greek cuisine is primarily inclusive of nutrient dense dishes made with wholesome fruits, vegetable and nuts. In addition, olive oil is the primary source of fat in most Greek dishes and the oil is known to offer health benefits which include but are not limited to lower risks of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke, glowing skin (you know I love a glow) and so much more. If I haven’t already convinced you on the “Mediterranean” diet, you’ll be glad to know that with the exception of the occasional lamb dish, there is little or no red meat, instead the main protein source is from wholesome fish and seafood.

Greek food really had me at Moussaka, which is a lighter version of lasagna as its skips the pasta (yay gluten free + low carb friendly) and replaces it with eggplant. It’s actually one of my favourite dishes to make and I find it best when it’s made lightly with little or no oil. Eat Greek Kouzina offers a really delicious take on this dish. 

Other classics on the menu include tzatziki, which is made of strained yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and sometimes dill. The Greek salad was fresh and light. Another definite delight on the menu is Lamb gyro, a moist and tasty grilled dish that will give you a satisfying protein boost.

So if you’re in the Mall of The Emirates or on JBR and you want to try Greek food, I highly recommend it.
