The chill of a Sydney winter is the perfect time to indulge in a little comfort food, while enjoying the crisp beauty of the Sydney harbour.
At George’s Mediterranean Bar and Grill our menu is designed to sooth the soul and warm the heart throughout these cooler months.
Here’s an insight into some of our favourite winter warmers to take the chill off the cooler months ahead…
Winter seafood sensations
Seafood might be a summer favourite, but there’s no denying its soul-soothing appeal come the colder days of winter. And a personal favourite at George’s is the warm and welcoming comfort of King Prawns Saganaki. Cooked using the traditional method of a clay pot, our recipe features feta and tomato.
It’s a heart warming, soul soothing staple any day of the wintry week.
Whether it’s lamb, pork, chicken or beef, there’s nothing like a traditional main meal to bring some comfort to those cold winter days.
Our personal winter mains of choice are grilled pork cutlet, with fennel, dried figs, chickpeas and roast pumpkin; and Greek style lamb, featuring lemon and oregano potatoes.
Using authentic Mediterranean ingredients and traditional cooking techniques, they summon the comfort of family and childhood to bring brightness to any grey winter’s day.
Sharing the winter love
The days might be a little be colder and the nights a little crisper, but when you’re looing to add some festivity to the sometimes sombre mood of winter, nothing beats a shared meal with family and friends.
Our absolute pick for any shared occasion is a Greek feast banquet. Suited to a minimum of two people it features all the traditional favourites like zucchini fritters, and grilled haloumi along with the hero of many a Greek meal – lamb.
Meanwhile, if it’s a casual work week lunch or an after hours gathering with friends, the Mezze banquet is equivalent to a tour of the Mediterranean, summoning all those summer images of Greece on a faultless beachside day.
Boasting offerings like stuffed green olives and red peppers; Spanakopita Filo pastries filled with spinach, feta and spring onion, and chicken souvlaki or beef kefta, the full flavour of Greece is effortlessly complemented by stunning backdrop of a Sydney winter occasion spent overlooking the harbour.
A big, heart-warming breakfast
Few things beat a heart-warming breakfast on a chilled weekend morning. Every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday, George’s serves up a breakfast featuring all the traditional favourites.
