February 2017: Hungry Donkey, the Greek street food restaurant in Aldgate, has welcomed 2017 with a new menu focused on strengthening its vegan and vegetarian offering, as well as expanding its drinks list.
Owner Markos Tsimikalis says of the new menu, ‘we have always catered well for vegetarians and vegans, but when considering updates to our seasonal menu, we felt it was something that we wanted to focus on in particular this time round. Whilst our delicious souvla spit-roasted meat will of course always remain on the menu, we hope that having a wider selection of dishes will encourage people to consider Greek cuisine for both its meat as well as its vegetarian and vegan food options.’
New vegetarian dishes on the main menu include a Halloumi Pita Wrap (halloumi cheese, Greek slaw, caramelised onions and tomato in a pita wrap), Feta Bougiourdi (oven-baked feta cheese with tomatoes and paprika) and a Roasted Beetroot Salad (candy beetroots with walnuts and an optional yoghurt garlic sauce unless choosing the vegan option). Briam (a traditional dish made with oven-roasted vegetables) is also a new addition, served with feta, or without for our vegan friends, along with a vegetarian souvlaki (with roasted pepper dressing), also vegan. On the breakfast menu new vegetarian options include a Greek Omelette (eggs, peppers, onions, feta cheese and Greek slaw) and the Cheese Pita Toastie (feta and graviera cheese, tomato and sumac in a toasted pita wrap).
On the drinks menu additions include a Metaxa Spice cocktail (Metaxa brandy, ginger, spices and cinnamon), the phenomenal bio-dynamic Karanikas Terra Levea Assyrtiko (a white wine from Florina, Greece) and a limited edition Septem Lava (9% Imperial Red Ale) hailing from Evia, Greece.
As a nod to its loyal meat-eating customers, Hungry Donkey has added two fantastic new meat dishes which include Pork Prasoselino (celery and leek slow-braised pork served with potato salad) and Beef Stifado (slow-cooked beef with baby onions, cloves and cinnamon served on chips).
The restaurant, which specialises in simple, authentic Greek cuisine, has also always put a strong emphasis on responsibly-sourced ingredients. All of the wine, beer and spirits on the menu at Hungry Donkey are now also available to buy at retail price to take away from the restaurant. Customers can either buy when they dine or pick up as they pass by.
