Souvla- The essence of Cypriot Food
This is by far the most popular meat dish in the cypriot cuisine. Various parts of the lamb are passed through massive skewers and are left to grill over a barbecue grill which is affectionately called the foukou on the island of cyprus(cypriot word is derived from the greek word of fire which is fotia). This is the most commonly eaten food on the island of Cyprus and it plays a huge role in the Greek-Cypriots’s lives as it is eaten at times of celebration whether that is on someone’s birthday, on christmas and most importantly on Easter Sunday after the end of the Greek Orthodox’s fast.
