This authentic double-story souvlaki shop (the top floor is an open deck looking over the streets of Maboneng) is located in a cleverly reconstructed shipping container. It’s come a long way since owner Dino Vlachos started out working a market stall at Maboneng’s Sunday Market on Main in 2012, drawing the crowds with his freshly made Greek street food.
For lunch create your own meze by choosing small plates of grilled haloumi, chill feta, tarama and tzatziki dips, chicken or lamb kebabs, or try the substantial kebab plates, beef patties or mixed grill. Make sure to specify how you would like your meat cooked.
From 07:30 daily you can enjoy a freshly ground Ethiopian bean coffee with pastries, and toasted sandwiches are also on the menu. Late afternoon Soul Souvlaki is a cool bar from which to watch the sun set over the city, while listening to some easy tunes drifting out across Albrecht Street.
Also at 339 Jan Smuts Avenue, Craighall.
