The Little Greek Pie Company is a newly-opened takeaway offering (yes, you guessed it) pies, salads and greek desserts. The shop's proving to be rather popular as there was a steady stream of people coming in despite the fact that this shop only opened on Friday. Perhaps it's because it's new, perhaps it's the novel concept of a Greek pie, perhaps because the shop's got a bright you-can't-miss-it lime green colour scheme, or a combination of all three!
In any case, I strolled down to The Little Greek Pie Company to check it out today. I'm not the biggest fan of pies, and was pleasantly surprised to find that Greek pies are very much not like English pies. The filling's not as overwhelmingly substantial and is sandwiched between two thin layers of pastry. Definitely not at all like the heavy pie you're used to seeing sold in most other places, the ones almost guaranteed to fill you up so full that you can't possibly move, much less work after that.
In short, ideal for a nice, light lunch.
The reason behind that is that there're only four ingredients which go into the pie crust: spelt flour, extra virgin olive oil, water and a pinch of salt. It really is healthy then!
The menu changes every day, I'm told, with prices starting from £3.50 a slice. I went for the salmon, spinach & ricotta pie (£4.50), so fresh that it squirted the moment I bit into it! I also opted for a greek yogurt & honey (2% fat, £1.80) just to top it up. Together, the two made for a healthy, delicious lunch.
There was a nice, gleaming, huge coffee maker in the stop. I'm working on limiting my caffeine intake at the moment, or would have given it a go. The Little Greek Pie Company uses Danesi coffe beans.
They taste good but at around £4 for a small slice they are massively overpriced. I am now heading out to get something else to eat as it didn't even slightly fill me and I am not a massive eater.
If you want to spend £8+ on take away food for lunch then it might be right for you, but there are plenty of options around Goodge Street that will offer you a lot more for your money.
The Little Greek Pie Company will be serving authentic pies from the Epirus region of mountainous Northern Greece...we'll have a choice of four pie fillings each day, anything from salmon, spinach and ricotta to aubergine, spicy beef and halloumi.
We'll also have fantastic coffee, available to drink in or take-away, and a range of Greek snacks (try the legendary village salad), from fresh salads, to proper yogurt and honey. We'll also be selling a range of Greek groceries, from extra virgin olive oil and pots of honey, to Greek chocolate, sesame seed bars and unusual treats such as mastiha.
