Yefsi at Attika is an authentic dining experience, centred around the Greek style of shared ‘meze’ eating. Northbridge is a symbolic location for the restaurant as it’s where the family migrated to from Greece. Old family recipes are combined with contemporary flair to give you a little taste of Greece in Perth.
The menu at Brika draws on the flavours of Greece using local Australian produce and exclusively imported Greek products to create a dynamic and seasonal menu to help appease your wanderlust.
For tasty street eats reminiscent of hot days wandering the streets Mykonos, there’s Filos and Yiros. This hole-in-the-wall window from Brika serves up yiros, a fluffy pita filled with meat, tomato, onion, tzatziki and – wait for it – chips! They accept dollars only so save your euros for next time.
For a little bit of architecture, you can visit the Greek Orthodox Church of Evangelismos, established in 1958 in West Perth and the Cathedral of Saint's Constantine and Helene established in 1937 in Northbridge. Squint your eyes and use your imagination and it might just feel like you’re sightseeing… almost.
