Lamb Kleftiko - it is one of the most beloved dishes you can find in Cyprus, and rightly so!
However, where is the best you can find in the Mediterranean island country? To find the best, you must go to Porfyrios Ofton Kleftikon "Syrton" restaurant in Peristerona, Nicosia province.
It is a restaurant in the centre of the village, famous for its nice smell! Porfirios in Peristerona knows the art of the kleftiko, which is why every year it is recognised as a favorite haunt of the island, attracting visitors from all over the country.
Since 1985, it has been dragged onto broken tiles in a traditional oven to drain the grease and served on parchment paper. Accompanied by fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, excellent caper vinegar, local sheep's yogurt and zivania.
