Guests can look forward to enjoy the mouth-watering Yiros (Spit-roasted Lamb in Pita Breads), Moussaka (Baked Eggplant and Meat Casserole) and everyone’s favourite Souvlaki (Grilled Skewers). As Chef George’s is well-known for his desserts-making skills, the dessert corner is a must try during this promotion. Patrons will be able to savour some of his signature desserts such as Baklava (Sweet Almond and Honey Pastries), Cream Kataifi (Custard Cake with Shredded Filo Pastry) and Loukomades (Honey-drizzled Fried Pastries).

This year, Chef George Diakomichalis is bringing something new to the table. As Greek food is traditionally enjoyed in large group along with a family and friends, Chef George will be hosting a special ‘Chef’s Table’ session every night for those interested to experience this Mediterranean lifestyle. Diners at the ‘Chef’s Table’ will get to enjoy a personal tour of Greek food, stories on culture and lifestyle. On selective nights, members of the Hellenic Society of Malaysia will also be present to share stories and how to enjoy Greek beverages in particularly the “Ouzo”. There is no extra cost to be seated at the ‘Chef’s Table’ however seat are limited to ensure that diners can truly enjoy the experience.
So sit back and relax, enjoy your dinner with some light breeze accompanied by the lively, spirited music that spill through the speaker.
“We are very excited to be back again at Eccucino for the third time and this year we want to deliver a unique dining experience for our diners,” said Chef George. “We want to bring our Greek culture and lifestyle to the table and get everyone together during the ‘Chef’s Table’ session, the way we do it back at home!” says Chef George.
