Sharing an artisanal twist on the oldest, original street food: Greek souvlaki.
This is the first time that Ilias of Mr Souvlaki has operated in Banbury having traded in markets & events in London & Oxford in the past whilst cultivating & expanding his souvlaki crafting skills. Ilias moved in Banbury in 2020, recognising that this is the right time & place for a Greek Style Street Food venture in the area.
“Since relocating in the UK a decade ago I felt a constant nostalgia for my home, a “Nostos” as we say in my mother tongue. And the tastes of Greece are part of what makes its culture… Greek. So since the UK became my new home, I thought of bringing something from Greece, here. My grandfather underwent the same emotional journey, in the States, many decades ago, and despite his empty pockets, his small canteen & his big dream – to spread the Greek tastes, traditions &warm hospitality to the Sates – took over New York like a storm! His stories, but also the same big dream & unending love for the oldest, original “street food” inspired us to take our own little steps, towards making souvlaki well known in Banbury. We would like to welcome everyone to Mr Souvlaki!”
“Banbury is an interesting place – both historic & traditional, but also diverse & vibrant! With many options available, the citizens of Bunbury are cultivated, culinary seekers who I am sure would appreciate our artisan twist in traditional souvlaki & our authentic, high quality ingredients.”
Ilias instantly fell in love with Lock29 – a concept out of London’s most contemporary food venues, right at the heart of Banbury. We know that Mr Souvlaki will make a big difference to our offer here and can’t wait for you to try their incredible food. “Our authentic craftsmanship, artisan street twist & high quality ingredients (sourced locally or shipped from Greece) will win our customers’ hearts! “
Opening Mr Souvlaki in Lock29 is all about making a dream come true, “ to spread the Greek tastes, traditions and warm hospitality to each & every customer of ours, by offering a truly authentic eating experience. We can’t wait to see the same customer twice; this will be the ultimate testimonial that we put our hearts & souls into the Mr Souvlaki concept.”
Ilias is thrilled to be part of Lock29, a space that generates buzz and brings a community to life.
