10 Greek Street

10 Greek Street has been open since early 2012 and I finally made it there a couple of weeks ago for dinner with Nibs.  The place is pretty small and it's walk ins only for dinner (reservations are taken at lunchtimes for those who prefer to book in advance).

We arrived at around 8pm and managed to snag one of the small bar tables.  You need to order one dish at a time or go small plates because the table won't take more than one large plate, but this worked for us.  We ordered a carafe of Austrian white and settled in for the night.

House bread was lovely, foccacia, corn, olive and granary bread with olive oil to dip.  The first dish to show up was the fried squid (£7).

This was really delicious, I would have liked the pieces to have been a bit smaller, they were a little tricky to bite through but the accompanying romesco sauce was great.

Next up were the longhorn meatballs (£6).  Not a pretty plate, but really good, topped with chopped chives and parmesan.  They were a combination of pork and beef with a rich tomato sauce, loved them.

We'd really filled up on their brilliant bread selection so we decided to move onto cheese next.  Manchego, a blue and a soft chèvre came with a fruity chutney and some thin crispbreads for £7.

And we finished things off with the salted chocolate and caramel tart with crème fraîche (£6)

We couldn't believe the amount of salt piled on top, a bit eye watering to be honest and you need to be careful to only get a crystal or 2 with each mouthful or it's overpowering but I liked the simplicity and the boldness.

Looking back, it doesn't seem like we ate much but we both felt very full.  We lingered and ordered a couple more glasses of wine and weren't rushed to leave at all.  It was very busy on a Tuesday evening and there were so many other dishes on the menu that caught my eye.  I'll definitely be back.

We spent around £25 each so pretty good value to boot.

i've been to this place 4 or 5 times wanting to love it but always feeling ripped off. for some reason the food has always had something lacking. much prefer duck soup.

Wow, 4 or 5 times and they still haven't impressed? Shame. Have to agree that Duck Soup is better, think I will give them another go but interesting you say that. I'll go back to Duck Soup first.
