South African food in Greece: #RainbowFriday no.31

November 11, 2016

Welcome to your 31st edition of #RainbowFriday! This week we’re heading south from France towards Greece to sample some delectable South African flavours at the restaurant, Kozi’s.

Restaurant of the week: Kozi’s

Kozi’s opened doors to the public in March 2010 with a modest offering of nine tables in the restaurant. The aim of the restaurant, from the onset, was to fuse the delicious flavours of Greece and South Africa for a unique culinary fusion experience.

The restaurant has since welcomed feedback from their patrons in fine-crafting a menu which offers diners a truly extraordinary experience. They see high standard of food as an absolute non-negotiable and pride themselves in offering homemade dishes which satisfy the appetites of their customers.

Expats will be happy to know that the South African braai forms an integral part of Sunday dining at Kozi’s.
