Last Sunday, we tried a new grill restaurant in our neighborhood, Peiraiki.
It is called Ta Piperia (The Peppers), the second outlet of the restaurant with the same restaurant in Palaio Faliro.
Here the photo is a bit dark and does not do the justice to the white and bright interior; have a look at the photos below shot with the daylight.
The menu is more similar to those of the new-wave kebab restaurants, rather than those of classic souvlaki shops. You can order meat both as pita wraps or as 'merida' (portion). The full menu is on their website (below).
Here is fried potatoes and Greek salad without feta. The potatoes were fresh and quite good.
Here is a portion (merida) of grilled chicken on skewer (7.50 Euro) to share between us. It does not have potato, but served with pitas.
We liked the chicken so much so that we returned within a week to order the same dish. To be honest, it was not the best grilled chicken I have ever eaten, but it was quite satisfactory as grilled chicken in souvlaki restaurants.
We had also two skewers of pork, but these were disappointing; tough and with strong porky smell.
With a bottle of beer, the bill came to 20.30 Euro. We'd say it is a good value for money.

As we liked it , we returned there after 6 days, this time during the daytime.
We took a table on the 1st floor and had this view. Not bad, isn't it?
We ordered more of less the same things, except for the pastourmas, instead of pork skewers.
The bill this time was 25 Euro and got a free orange cake, too.
We'd surely go again, as it is so convenient for us. If you feel like souvlaki with a sea view, do give it a go.
