I love Greek food, so contacted Brizola via Facebook, enquiring if they could cater for my vegan diet and allergies, suggesting dishes off the menu which could be suitable. I cannot fault the reply from chef proprietor Rachel, who was very helpful and accommodating, so I booked a table for dinner.
My starter was homemade flatbread, houmous and beetroot houmous, olives, salad and sesame coated tomatoes, a perfect starter as I love all the components. I could have munched on the flatbread for ever, it was that good, especially with the houmous.
My main course was mushroom Stifado, a hearty dish with peppers and aubergine, in a tomato sauce, served with crispy rosemary Greek potatoes.
I really enjoyed this rustic dish and as for those potatoes, I could happily eat a big plateful with some houmous and I would be a happy vegan.
I love the concept of Brizola, with a young enthusiastic team, headed up by Rachel, serving what I can only describe as Greek comfort food. I cannot fault the attention to detail, regarding my allergies and vegan dietary requirement and the food was spot on. I had a quick chat with Rachel, who said she was happy to tweak dishes to suit, so next time, I would be happy to have a main course mezze including falafels and the Greek potatoes and of course that fabulous flatbread.
