Being a foodie like I am, I search for a lot of recipes in all the corners of the internet to try and recreate. One of the best, if not the best recipe I tasted since starting this blog is the popular Greek pork souvlaki. This dish is delicious. Its main ingredient – the pork – is so tender and flavourful with a hint of tanginess to it (the lemon juice gave it that taste). Additionally, the mixture of ingredients like garlic, onion, oregano, and many more made it unmistakably Greek.

This recipe will not be complete though without pita bread and tzatziki on the side. These two bring out the taste of the souvlaki and make it one step higher on the yumminess level especially the tzatziki. This dip is quintessential in achieving this classic Greek recipe. I couldn’t find any good words to describe how amazing this dish is. I think this is the best that I have recreated so far in this blog. Concurrently, to make this dish undeniably close to its original Greek version, you have to put the pork on the skewer. It looks more presentable that way.
