The Greek's Kitchen

Authentic Cuisine

The Greek’s Kitchen – Colchester

I have always had a great passion for food and cooking. For many years, I have wanted to follow my ultimate passion and dream of cooking amazing, delicious food.

Throughout the years, my family has always loved cooking. It all started when my great-grandfather owned a taverna in a place called Plaka in Athens. It opened in 1932 and is still there to this day under new ownership.

As a child, my Nanny Roula would always cook us traditional Greek dishes, including my favourite chicken and lemon soup called “Avgolemono”. Although this is not to everyone’s taste, I’m sure her famous Greek-style meatballs would be.

Growing up with these amazing European flavours has always inspired me to cook. But I wanted to turn it into my dream job.

2023 is the year I made my dream come true. In May, I started this journey by opening my first food stall in Colchester town centre. We also offer catering for events

Please follow closely as I keep you updated on what is yet to come. I am so excited to share my news with you all and share my Greek traditions and recipes.

What our customers have to say

Fantastic Food!

"The Greek's Kitchen recently catered a 40th birthday for me that had around 80 guests and I have to say, they did a fantastic job. We sat down well in advance of the party to discuss the menu and budget, Loukas understood perfectly and come back to us within budget and with a menu that we loved. The day of the party they arrived when they said they would, set up and were ready as planned and the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend them to cater for any event."
