The family-owned Greek restaurant chain Plaka has given its flagship Cresta space a refreshed look and feel, as well as a revamped menu.
With over 25 years as one of SA’s favourite Greek restaurants, the menu still includes many traditional favourites such as calamari, pastitsio, kleftiko, whole grilled linefish, prawns and lamb chops. But it also includes some new, more contemporary dishes such as honey-mustard pork fillet and a family-sized portion of fisherman’s pasta. The menu also offers street food such as yiros, souvlaki and toasted pitas for a quick meal on the go.
“We’ve designed our menus around the Greek way of life and Plaka’s ethos of “eating together”,” says Adel Nofal and Nishall Iswarlall, Plaka Cresta Franchisee Partners. “So, we’ve include a number of family meals – “The Family Table” is a selection of popular, hearty meals generously served with a variety of salads and side orders for family or friends to share whilst offering unbeatable value.”
While the menu covers both quick meals and long lazy lunches, for solo diners or those eating with friends and family, each dish offers unpretentious, great-tasting food that’s made using the fresh ingredients that are integral to Greek cuisine. Customers can also take home a taste of Plaka from the in-store deli that sells a variety of Greek delicacies including olives, olive oil and pastas.
Plaka’s new look also includes fresh blue mosaic, touches of bright bougainvillea and soft wood finishes. “We look forward to welcoming all friends, families and work colleagues to come and enjoy our flavourful and vibrant atmosphere to eat together,” concludes Adel.
