Thanks to the culinary creativity of Head Chef Altin “Alex” Mata, an Albanian immigrant who ran his own Greek restaurants in Athens, Greece for over 20 years, Supergreek is born!
If you work around the CBD or are the type that watches what you eat, you will be no stranger to grain bowl and salad options. Unlike the typical grain bowl shop out there, Supergreek has it’s grain bowl *doesn’t* allow you to pick your items. Why? Chef Alex has meticulously crafted each and every component in the menu, ensuring that selected ingredients are matched harmoniously with the in-house dips that are made in small batches daily.
The highlight of every good greek cuisine is definitely the souvlaki – small pieces of meat or vegetables grilled on skewers. And that tenderness and flavor emanates from every protein in the various grain bowl options. Delicious and nutritious – best of both worlds!
The signature bowl is none other than the Roasted Barramundi ($12.9). Comprising of dill-marinated Barramundi fillets, quinoa, arugula, mashed potato, roasted broccoli (charred to perfection!), cauliflower, onions, cherry tomatoes and Greek vinaigrette. Oh and did i mention that it was paired with the creamy homemade Parmigiano sauce?? The combination is so good, which enlightened me on why Chef Alex don’t offer the customization option. The chef knows best!
Other options include the Lamb Kebab ($10.9), Flamed Grilled Steak ($13.9), Grilled Chicken Steak ($9.9) and The Roasted Vegan ($7.9). As mentioned, and i shall iterate, each bowl comes with different selections of greens and grains, and most importantly, the dips (from housemade Tzatziki, hummus to the mango capsicum sauce!). As such, the only way to savor and pay tribute to the greek gods is to revisit and try em! Because trust me, the serving is meant to fill you up.
Also, if you aren’t feeling too grain-y, you can enjoy these combinations within a traditional pita or opt for a hearty salad. All meals are assembled à la minute for maximum freshness!
To end a sumptuous meal off, it’s dessert time. In classic greek tradition, what can be better than the quintessential Greek Yoghurt? The ones at Supergreek are freshly made in-house daily. It is strained 3 times for a creamy texture, and the entire process that spans 30 hours!
Sure they are healthy, but they are bland. Period. But having tried The Greek Classis ($4.9), i’m a convert. Top it with some honey and walnuts, and it makes a world difference! Also, the texture is just incredible, even reminded me of my favourite Paneer cheese 😉
All in all, i will be back again. (In fact, already did as of the writing of this post!)
