A restaurant in Crete serves… Minoan souvlaki

At the restaurant “guests have the opportunity to interact with Minoan culture” according to the owner.

Crete is a place that “oozes” culture and history. One of the aspects of the “identity” and culture of Crete is the culinary wealth that the Minoans cultivated and left as a legacy.

In fact, in a restaurant in Heraklion, one can even try a Minoan… souvlaki.

The Minoan souvlaki is among the dishes that the Minoans had created, shaping their diet based on ingredients and raw materials of the Cretan land

As he explains to Cretalive, the owner of Pasifai restaurant, with its authentic Minoan “menu”, the revival of Minoan dishes was a vision of his creating “a culinary destination, where visitors have the opportunity to interact with Minoan culture”. .

“The Minoan souvlaki was an idea that was based on the findings of the prisoners as well as explicit references in Homer’s Odyssey, which prove that the Minoans used to skewer their meat and roast it on the prisoners creating today’s ‘souvlaki'” says the owner and , for the sake of truth, refers to the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion but also to Santorini, where one can see the prisoners.

He adds the catalytic role of the professor of Aegean Scriptures Dr. Minas Tsikritsis as a guide regarding the ingredients and raw materials used by the Minoans.
