Nowhere does Greek street food in Wembley like The Athenian. Nestled in Unit 12 of Boxpark, the eatery has perfected the ever-popular Greek street food favourite: souvlaki. Heralding from ancient times in Athens, souvlaki is a round and soft flatbread.
The Athenian chefs generously pack this traditional flatbread with grilled meats, halloumi cheese, a medley of salad, and their delicious signature sauces. Where possible, all the ingredients are sourced from independent Greek suppliers, adding that extra level of authenticity. If you’re looking to try something different, opt for a souvlaki box or ‘naked’ salad instead of a wrap. As well as meat and cheese options, there is also a separate plant-based menu.
