K Grill: Small appetites not welcome here!
The Kastellorizo Group, long a standard bearer for all things seafood, venture into their second meaty restaurant in Voula. Not just another run-of-the-mill souvlaki place, the menu at K Grill you’ll see is anything but ordinary. They take the art of grilling seriously here so expect succulent meats and Greek skewered specialities with just a touch of sophistication. Stop on by, grab one of the picnic tables, and bring your appetite! Here is a place that lets you bite off more than you can chew.
In restaurant years, 35 is an eternity. Few businesses make it that far. Times change. Tastes change. The Kastellorizo Group though have managed to mark three decades of serving the freshest of seafood to generations of exigent Athenians. But a good steak is forever and savvy restaurateurs that they are, their new venture in Voula is a shrine to grilled meats.
What makes K Grill stand out when Greek grill restaurants serving souvlakis, kebabs, chops and steaks have spread across Athens with the eagerness of a rash? Here is a restaurant that is in the business for the long haul – the accent is on quality and the food here can be as ‘low and slow’ or as ‘fast’ as you want it to be.
Voula square lends itself to large noisy pareas where meat lovers can give in to their cavemen spirit. The atmosphere is of a large communal picnic with children skate-boarding or bicycling while you tuck in to the extraordinarily well-cooked meats. Have one of the nine salads on offer (priced between 5 and 7 euros) if you feel wrong about a meal composed entirely of meat.
Take your pick from Greek staples – traditional souvlaki in skewers or wrapped in a pita, juicy roast chicken, delicious kebab, rustic sausages, pork chops, or a seriously carnivorous meat platter with an equally impressive array of sauces.
The menu ventures beyond the confines of safe Greek palates to also include winningly tender spicy, beef burgers, complete with poached egg, a delectable chicken roast with lemon-ginger dressing and more guilt-free veggie options.
Playing on post-crisis sensibilities, K Grill is spot on with the pricing too. Affordable gastronomy at its best. K Grill packs a big punch as is evident from its faithful crew of hungry followers. We say, a cold winter’s day would always be made better by a visit here.
Open from noon until 2 am on weekends and until 1.30 am on weeknights
