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.



ATHENS - A regulation in an omnibus bill will allow repatriated Greeks from Albania and the former Soviet Union to receive full national pensions, Labor and Social Protection Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said during a discussion in Greek Parliament on Tuesday.
