PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Whilst not light at the table in the traditional way, Zak's saganaki (and everyone's for that matter) is still always a darned fine, delicious way to start a meal Greek style. This fried haloumi cheese with its moreish, lip smacking, licking, saltiness – and fun rubbery squeakiness on the tongue – makes it hard to think about ordering anything else but five more serves please. But then you would rob yourself of the smokey flavours of Zak's chargrilled South Australian octopus, tenderness of lamb souvlakia, garlicky goodness of skordalia dip, and bite of prime beef rib with green peppercorn sauce. Sweet things could follow with a Turkish delight, soft warm honey puffs or Kataifi pastry shredded and layered with roasted nuts, honey syrup, cinnamon, custard and fresh cream. Perhaps just order another three serves of saganaki.
