Greek at Silom
One of my friend from Athens also once a regular visitor to Thailand complains several times that Bangkok is almost off-limits in Greek cuisine in a "convenience" location, thus he gave up his trip to Bangkok since few years ago.
Never too late for some good news, finally Bangkok has one in the heart of where he hangs out day and night, Silom Soi 4.
country salad Baht 130+; pita bread (with imported ingredients) Baht 30+
eggplant dip Baht 110+
souvlaki pork giros Baht 110+; lamb leg Baht 480+
moussaka Baht 280+
If you have never eaten in a Greek restaurant before, need not panic as the food is quite familiar to ours (though name is different). Souvlaki, consisting of pita bread wrapper in pork giros, tomato, onion and yogurt sauce, the Greek version of hot dog or shawarma. Moussaka is layers of aubergine (eggplant) and ground meat topped with bechamel sauce, baked. Seems it is the Greek version of lasagna. So aren't they familiar to you? Simply they all come from the Mediterranean family.
