One thing I miss in Cyprus is a good farmers market. A place with locally produced goods, food, crafts, cakes and breads etc. Two ideas.....maybe somebody knows of one already, or maybe you guys are out there producing things and there is no good farmers market. If there is interest, perhaps we could organise it. I am based in limassol. Thanks, Michelle
Could anyone help me I am looking at moving to Cyprus, could you please tell me if there are cheap supermarkets there. how much is pork, beef, sausages etc, how much is electric, and how much is a bottle of beer and how much are cigarettes, I currently live in turkey which is proving to be expensive here, so this is why i want an urgent cost comparison
Just got back from the fleamarket by the waterpark and discovered a german foodstall there. Had my first curreywurst in years. Just like the ones we had in Germany. They also have the shnizels with the mushroom sauce and fricadelas. Must say really enjoyed it as it brought back all the goood memories. Its called kazzys curreywurst just by the entrance.
I don't work for this company- its really the brainchild of two lovely ladies Rena and Marina- but they only opened recently and they teach greek cypriot cuisine. It took me ages to find something like this but it was well worth the money and effort- we cooked in Rena's kitchen in Strovolos and it was great. You can find them at www.yummycyprus.com or call Rena on 99494399 to set up a time. They do one on one sessions or group things if thats what you want.
Hi, In the past few months I have noticed that Cyprus has gone the way of Spain. In three separate instances they have charged me €6 for the village salad which is always presented, as standard with the village bread, free of charge in the past. This has been evident in frequent visits to 2 restaurants in Larnaca and one in Avgorou ( my village taverna). I questioned this charge and had it taken off the bills as it was not asked for.....as it was always presented before the order without charge in the past. The inlaws who frequently visit Spain said recently that the bread was now being charged for (without being requested with the order as it was always free of charge at the beginning of the meal in the past) at €4 each time. They subsequently refuse the bread at every meal as it is now the norm to charge for previously free of charge suppliments....even though they still present it with the meal without request! I checked the bill the last time i went out to a taverna in Leopetri and noticed that the salad (and bread) was not charged for so i assume this isn't widespread practice.........YET! Just make sure that you are not being charged for previously free of charge suppliments such as bread and village salad with your meals as I would hate to see Cyprus follow the desparation of Spain. Regards, Justin
