Cypriot Pork Souvlaki recipe #myholidaydish

When I was working in Athens, one of our regular favourite takeaways was the Souvlaki Man. It was one of the simplest lunches but quite delicious. If you are visiting Greece or Cyprus, you will find a souvlaki stall serving these grilled meat (usually pork) rolled up in soft flat breads with a bit of salad and zingy tzatziki.

This recipe is quite garlicky, as this is the authentic way that my Greek friend’s mum taught me. It is nothing like the stuff you get from supermarkets in the UK.
