Sisters Vikki and Helena Moursellas are behind the Greek and modern Australian restaurant on the ground floor of Sydney’s Civic Hotel, Two Fold.
The twins, who appeared in the 2014 season of My Kitchen Rules have created an environment and menu that makes guests feel as though they are in somebody’s home. Alongside Helena in the kitchen is head chef Robert Taylor (ex Swine & Co.).
As well as a series of adjustments to pub food, such as a spinach-haloumi sausage roll filled with feta and wild greens served with tomato chutney, the menu features a few Greek favourites. There is pork belly with braised cabbage, roasted spuds and homemade gravy; and a “lamb pie” moussaka made with eggplant, bechamel and potato.
For dessert expect Mediterranean-inspired treats such as their Nutella cheesecake with rosemary honeycomb, halva and hazelnut crumb. And as the seasons change, so will the menu. The sisters have a list of fresh salads and desserts in mind to share throughout the year.
A homemade Greek meal wouldn’t be complete without matching Greek wines, which are usually hard to find.
