Greek flavoured The Athenian is opening up in Canary Wharf with handmade halloumi fries and wild boar sausage gyros!

Greek street food concept, The Athenian is launching a new site in Canary Wharf on 13th November.

Following on from its hugely successful pop ups and venues across London and Bristol, founders Tim Vasilakis and Neo Christodoulou are now bringing their authentic street food and delicious souvlaki to the financial district of London.

Since launching in 2014 The Athenian has helped to popularise characteristically Hellenic dishes such as gyros and souvlaki, making them commonplace in London’s culinary scene. Using fresh, authentic and healthy ingredients and age-old recipes, The Athenian aims to make souvlaki part of our everyday diet, as it is in Greece, and a simple food that everyone can recognize and enjoy regularly.

Carefully sourced ingredients are delicately dressed in aromatic herbs, hand skewered, grilled then wrapped in warm and fluffy pitas, served with oregano-flecked fries, croquettes as well an array of zingy sauces and crisp, refreshing salads.

Located in prime position in Canary Wharf, The Athenian will call to mind the urban stalls of metropolitan Athens, serving street food staples in a fresh, contemporary and authentic way.

Examples from the menu include Souvlaki & Gyros made with either chicken, pork, lamb, wild boar sausage or halloumi, Vegan gyros – shavings of seitan marinated in herbs, lemon juice and olive served with vegan mayonnaise and Halloumi Fries, handmade halloumi fries served with either cooling tzatziki or spicy feta dip!

The Athenian will be the perfect place for a pita stop, to grab a quick lunch or to enjoy a light snack with a cold refreshing Hellenic craft beer. 

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
