Souv

By | Foodie | No Comments

Chef Robby Goco of Cyma launches Souv – a new concept restaurant that’s more fun, fresh, modern and progressive Greek.

“Cyma’s success, the most popular Greek resto in the country, is the foundation of Souv! Chef Robby Goco integrated the top 12 favorite dishes of Cyma here in Souv! because it still has the DNA of Cyma but like we said earlier, we’re progressing. Souv! is adhered to Greek philosophy cooking of -good fat, healthy grains, lots of fiber , low sugar and carbs”Souv (8)Souv (9) Souv (16)  Authentic Greek handpainted plates brought in by Chef himself.  He saw a guy painting them and he brought them back home and now they are here on the wall of Souv :-)Souv (10)  Souv comes from the word souvlaki/souvla/souva – a Greek dish referring to pieces of meat on a skewer. Staying true to its concept of being more fun and added with a little word play, we came up with “Souv!” Souv! is a full-sevice modern Greek concept focusing on a spit fired meat. Rotisserie is a style of roasting where meat is skewered on a long solid rod while being cooked over fire, using large joints of meat or entire animals such as lamb, pigs, and chickens.Souv (11)  So nice to meet Chef Robby Goco @bleurobster and his business partner since the beginning (12 years ago), Kristine Meehan. Now with 6 Cymas ( “My Rock”) 3 Green Pastures ( spearheaded the organic movement in the country ) Yumi ( Japanese ) and Munchtown ( hotdog ) This is my first time to meet him and I’m impressed by his way of thinking and how he chose to do Greek and how he owned it in the country. I learned a lot from him about ingredients, about business, about many many things. I love listening to his rational behind things, his stories and dishes. Today I also found out why I like Greek food – it’s because of LOOPS. Come visit Souv @souvbycyma and I’m sure you will love it. #SouvByCyma #EverydayGreek#H2HChefsSouv (27)Souv (15)  For appetizers, you can start with a range of mezzes from dips, to spinach and clam fondue. Souv (2) Greek NachosSouv (13)Sticky Chicken wings

Souv uses the 5 staple ingredients of Greek cooking, which we call SPOOL, to bring out the natural flavors of each ingredient-salt, pepper, olive oil, oregano, lemon.

Gamla Stan

By | Regent Seven Seas Explorer | No Comments

It was the  birthday of Princess Victoria so many streets were closed that day especially near the Palace. This is by the Royal Palace where people were waiting for her to pass by  #stockholm #Sweden #gamlastan#royalpalacestockholm #H2HStockholm#h2hssexplorer2017
Gamla Stan (21)The area of the Royal Palace is the Old Town, Gamla Stan.

I like going to old towns – the feel and the ambience – and of course they have to be touristy :-)  But its where you will find local crafts and also be able to find out a bit of the country by looking at the souvenirs they sell :-)  Gamla Stan (1) Gamla Stan (2) Gamla Stan (3) Gamla Stan (16) Gamla Stan (17) Gamla Stan (51) Gamla Stan (55) Gamla Stan (56) Gamla Stan (57) Gamla Stan (8) Gamla Stan (10) Gamla Stan (9) Gamla Stan (31) Gamla Stan (32) Gamla Stan (58) Gamla Stan (27) Gamla Stan (19) Gamla Stan (4) Gamla Stan (18) Gamla Stan (15) Gamla Stan (6) Gamla Stan (52) Gamla Stan (53) Gamla Stan (38) Gamla Stan (41) Gamla Stan (40) Gamla Stan (54) Gamla Stan (49) Gamla Stan (50) Gamla Stan (48) Gamla Stan (24) Gamla Stan (5) Gamla Stan (33) Gamla Stan (37) Gamla Stan (36) Gamla Stan (47) Gamla Stan (45) Gamla Stan (46) Gamla Stan (42)Gamla Stan (11) Gamla Stan (43) Gamla Stan (44) Gamla Stan (14) Gamla Stan (13) Gamla Stan (12) Gamla Stan (7) Gamla Stan (34) Gamla Stan (39) Gamla Stan (29) Gamla Stan (30) Gamla Stan (35) Gamla Stan (20) Gamla Stan (22) Gamla Stan (23) Gamla Stan (26) Gamla Stan (25) Gamla Stan (28)
