We take good quality fresh ingredients and with passion and great care create authentic Spanish and Greek Cypriot Dishes for your enjoyment.
Authenticity or Auténtico and attention to detail is what we pride ourselves in. Even the cooking implements we use, such as the Paellera (paella pans) and the Paellero (cooking ring) are sourced directly from Spain.
All of our rice, an important ingredient in a paella, is sourced and shipped from Spain along with the all the spices such as the saffron and the paprika. In fact, the only ingredients not sourced from Spain are the fresh ingredients bought locally.
Sofrito is the base sauce that makes a truly good Paella. Many stall based Paella cooks prepare their Sofrito by adding one ingredient after the other straight in to the pan. Whilst we feel it sometimes works, a quick fix does not compare to a Sofrito that has been carefully and thoughtfully prepared. We are not going to give away Grandma Maria’s recipe so easily but it is safe to say that it takes us a couple of hours to prepare our Sofrito. The results can be tasted and seen in the reviews we have received.
So what’s the difference between Greek and Greek Cypriot Food?
Cypriot cuisine is closely related to Greek and Middle Eastern cuisines; it is enriched by
Byzantine, French, Italian, Catalan and Ottoman influences.
It is more varied than simply Greek cuisine. Some of the spices and herbs commonly used in
Cypriot cooking include parsley, mint, cinnamon, fresh coriander, thyme, and oregano.
Traditionally, cumin and coriander seeds make up the main cooking aromas of the island.
