Perched on the edge of the Singapore River, Zorba The Greek Taverna is part of the Riverhouse in Clarke Quay. Filling a void since Clark Quay did not have a Greek restaurant, Zorba was born into a niche. Serving food that has most of its ingredients flown in from Greece, Zorba brings authentic dishes carved from age-old traditions to Singapore. Amongst the usual dips served, I found the cod roe taramasalata to be different. White instead of the usual pink with a less fishy taste which I am sure would be more palatable for some patrons. The Greek Moussaka priced at $22 is a humongous portion which could easily be shared by two. In fact this was the case with most dishes served at Zorba – portions were large! I loved the Moussaka sauce that the minced beef was cooked in - well marinated and obviously cooked for a long time. For meat lovers I would say Zorba’s signature dish of a mixed grill platter is a must. Priced at $88 it was heaped with chicken, lamb, beef in a variety of styles that sat on a bed of chips, salad and pita. If you are not a meat lover fear not, for there are many seafood options too – grilled octopus, sea bream and shrimp all grilled in the usual Greek style. Plain, squeezed with a touch of lemon to get the best taste out of the dish. The ambience of Zorba is second to none. Whether you are there on a romantic interlude or part of a large group, the serenity of watching boats on the river go by is wonderful. Calming my every sense on top of the much awaited Baklava, this was a fantastic way to end the night. Made with far less sugar than the usual dessert, this was a portion big enough for six people to share. I walked away feeling satiated, soaking in the night air of Clarke Quay as the music of the live band faded into the distance….

The juiciest meatballs in town are probably the Keftedes! Minced beef imbued with aromatic spices and herbs such as thyme, cumin and mint… Kali Orexi
