Greek Shop Lukumades Updates a Melbourne’s Doughnut Scene

MELBOURNE, Australia – It’s a craze that shows no sign of stopping, but the newest addition to Melbourne’s doughnut scene is a little different.

Meet Lukumades, a traditional Greek doughnut shop with a local twist, Good Food reports.

Founder Exarhos Sourligas uses an ancient Greek recipe for his hot “mouthful-size” doughnuts, which come around eight to a $10 serve. Order the All-Timer  and you’ll get them drizzled in honey and dashed with cinnamon.

“Loukoumades have been around for a while,” says Sourligas, “but Greeks are patriotic and they like to keep them for themselves. I wanted more Australians to be able to try them.”

83 Peel Street, West Melbourne.



LONDON - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had a meeting with Greeks of the diaspora while in London on Wednesday, during which he highlighted the options that Greeks living abroad now have to vote in Greek elections from their place of residence, as well as his government's emphasis on reforms.
