They’re also offering traditional Greek desserts as part of their takeaway 1-for-1 deal. Options include Baklava – an intricately layered filo pastry sandwiching diced nuts and glazed with honey syrup, or something called Yiaourti Me Meli – essentially premium imported Greek yogurt topped with honey and chopped walnuts.
