The Best Meal from Bizarre Foods: Cyprus

Mediterranean Food Heaven in Cyprus

Cyprus is an island paradise, and a crossroads of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern culture. It’s also a nation ripped in half by decades of conflict. In Nicosia, Cyprus, the world’s last remaining occupied and divided city, there is a small café called the Berlin 2 Wall Kebab House. They serve a simple set meal with plenty of mezze, from snails to mountain-harvest olives, from tomato and feta salad to brined caper branches dressed with olive oil. The centerpiece of the meal is their souvlaki and sheftalia.

Skewered and grilled over carob wood charcoal, the pork souvlaki is superb. Sheftalia are small mince meat pork and lamb sausages that are seasoned with mint, parsley and onion, wrapped in caul fat then spit roasted over open coals. They’re surprising light and so delicious. It’s my new favorite food on planet earth.
