The Verdict

Growing up in Melbourne, you learn a few food truths: use chopsticks for sashimi pizza, there's no such thing as too much Sriracha, and you’re not a wanker for having a coffee order longer than eight syllables.

Oh yeah, one more: life's too short to eat bad souvlaki. Good thing we found just the place. 

First it was Trapezi, then Spitiko, and now we’ve hit the trifecta in authentic Greek food with John Ghionis’s newest Fairfield venture, Spitaki.

Translating to 'Little House', Spitaki transports you to a traditional Greek home, with album covers of 1970s hits and the sweet sound of Greek soap operas patting you on the back while you chow down your favourite souva. 'Just like Yia Yia’s house.' That's the mission. Ghionis has a staunch '#NoMalakies' policy too, which means only quality, A-Grade ingredients, treated with love and slathered in garlic sauce. 

The holy grail is the pork, found in the kitchen, rotating slowly over a (well fed) bed of charcoal. Lamb-fiends, you'll be happy to know they do a mean kebap (lamb mince), spiced to perfection and oozing in all the right places. The juicy wrapped-up goodies can be enjoyed with pork, chicken or vego. You can pick from either gyro (recommended) or kebap and loukaniko sausage mince. All come with hand-cut chips stuffed inside, naturally. 

To rebalance your sugar levels after smashing plates and Zorba dancing, we recommend the Loukoumades (those little deliciously fried Greek doughnuts) with a side of Nutella, mascarpone, honey, walnuts and cinnamon.
