Bahari The Hellenic Palate
179 Swan St Richmond, VIC 3121
Ever since I discovered the existence (and deliciousness) of taramasalata, I’ve been on a massive Greek food streak. From Jimmy Grants to Stalactites, I’ve chosen pita over dumplings at every turn. The most recent of my Mediterranean adventures was at Bahari, a popular and highly rated restaurant in Richmond serving delicious ‘Gringlish’ food. They have a banquet menu as well as a la carte, which changes frequently to include specials.
Seriously good pita, straight from the oven, and a delicious selection of dips. I really appreciated that extra pita was offered when we ran out – a sign of great service.
Very tender chicken meatballs in a delicious tomato sauce, perfect for dipping pita.
The perfect comfort food. This version was absolutely delicious, with flavourful lamb mince and a beautiful layer of smooth béchamel.
A simple, classic Greek salad.
Beetroot, feta and walnut – a winning combination.
We had a lovely dinner at Bahari, and left feeling very satisfied. Even though the serving sizes weren’t huge, the sharing-style dishes meant we could all try a bit of everything. The moussaka was definitely the highlight for me, and I know I’ll be back for their pita soon!
