The idea of keeping a restaurant to yourself is a weird one, isn’t it? One of our greatest concerns - one that really keeps us up at night - is the thought that somewhere we love might vanish because not enough people know about it. This is how we feel about Souvlakiland. This tiny spot down the end of Homerton High Street is serving some of the best gyros in the city. And they’re about a fiver each, meaning you can eat like a god or goddess here for a tenner. Get some halloumi with your pork yeeros, or - and this is our move - some extra pitta with their homemade tzatziki. Most importantly, spread the word.
