What Are You Homesick For? Let These Venues Bring Back Memories of Home.

We all have special memories of home…as a multi-cultural nation, Australia embraces many different ethnicities, who have chosen to make this country home.

With the global pandemic previously curbing not only international travel but also preventing us from travelling interstate to visit family and friends, we have all had to make sacrifices.

What evokes memories of home for you? Is it the smell of fragrant tropical flowers, an Indian curry simmering in the kitchen, or the aroma of coconut suntan oil? Whatever sets off those waves of homesickness, we have you covered.

Every Friday, AGFG will highlight a restaurant, venue, or product from around the globe and this week we are heading to Greece:

Embrace the vibrancy of Greek culture at Koutouki, a lively restaurant in the bustling shopping and dining precinct established on Norton Street in Leichhardt. Warm in ambience, inside is fitted out in earthy features with a mix of honeyed timbers and exposed brick walls, while a stage beside the bar remains a permanent fixture ready for live music performances.

A must-have dish that reminds people of Greece:

Slow-baked lamb shoulder and lemon potatoes; or grilled octopus, oregano, lemon and olive oil. Also leave room for dessert as your favourite Greek sweets make an appearance and are housemade just like Mum used to make.


What restaurant features remind people of home:

The décor is reminiscent of walking to a Greek family home, with a selection of trinkets, tapestries and icons. Close your eyes and you could really be in your Yia-yia’s home.

Why dining here helps guests feel like they have hopped on a plane back to Greece:

From the ouzo to Greek cocktails, boutique biodynamic Greek wines, cocktails and beers - the food, drinks and live music every Friday and Saturday night transport you right back to the Greek Islands - it's a true Greek-style taverna experience here in Australia.
