Have you heard about the cheese?... 

Hellenic Gourmet is the brainchild of Goulielemos from Crete, drawing on his encyclopaedic knowledge of Greek cuisine.

It has everything you could want from a neighbourhood 'bakaliko’: fresh-in-the-barrel feta, dried herbs, juicy sausages, every type of olive and olive oil, pasta, honey and much, much more. The staff love you to try new food with each visit.

Since launching, Hellenic Gourmet has been so successful, it has spawned a new shop, Hellenic Bakery, run by Anastasia, the wife of Goulielemos.

Proudly displayed on a wall is a photo of the legendary 1970s Panathinaikos F.C. team that reached the European Cup Final. Rumour has it that one of the dashing young men in the photo is Goulielemos himself...
