Never too late to enjoy a Greek meal and reminisce about sunny summers — even though the rainy season is upon us.

    • It’s rice, raisins, and pine nuts cooked and seasoned together — and then stuffed in a bell pepper and baked. 😀 Tapos may kasamang vegetable stock and braised potato; pang-vegan talaga!

  1. What a feast!
    That’s the beauty of our weather: forever summer! so we can enjoy these sort of meals anytime at all!
    Is the rice in the stuffed pepper very spiced?

      • Indeed! And most restaurants at The Podium (where Souv is) tend to fill up during lunch hours. Even the Corner Market food hall there becomes a game of musical chairs from 12:00 pm onwards!

        From my experience, the best time to dine at any restaurant in The Podium is around 1:00 to 2:00 pm, when the lunch crowds have dissipated.

    • Well, the nearest analogues would be Turkish or Mediterranean restaurants – albeit the latter leans toward a more Arabic flavor palate. I did look up some Greek restaurants — and apparently, KL and JB are host to some.
