London’s Kalimera, No Longer Food Truck, Worth Bus Trip

December 19, 2021

Since no one says, “let’s get some English food,” London is lucky to have a number of Greek restaurants and now Kalimera, which was a food truck, is on the list of must-eats.

Located in the northern neighborhood of Crouch End, it got glowing reviews from the site Country and Town House, not just for its take on Greek specialities, but also for desserts. There’s a chocolate and biscuit cake called Louiza’s Mosaiko and or orange sponge cake (Portokalopita) served with mastic ice cream.

Then there’s the cocktails with Greek twists on classics like an Old Fashioned mixed with spiced wine liqueur and a ‘very dirty’ martini, flavored with Florina roasted pepper and thyme, a selection of Greek wines, craft beers, and spirits.

There’s no metro or train stations nearby though, so you’ll have to drive or jump on a bus to get there, which the site said is well worth it, the lack of public transportation keeping the area quaint and genuine, with few tourists.

The restaurant is the work of founder Télémaque Argyriou who named it for Good Morning in Greek but it’s a draw anytime.
