karatello(literally the keg) means you are stuffed; full of delicious and enjoyable food! basically it’s a way of finding some kind of material happiness. it is also the name of a fine restaurant in the old town of Limassol in Cyprus. rather appropriate, don’t you think? “karatello” is serving new age Cypriot delicacies(meze). the venue is masterfully designed, a perfect blend of past and present in the form of a welcoming tavern. the staff is polite, thorough and efficient, ready to handle all requests.
when handed the menu, note down the order yourself and let the party begin! try some traditional stuffed ravioli, an unusually tasteful boiled haloumi cheese, a swell flambeed saganaki(aka fried) cheese, some delicious sausages, a juicy double cut pork chop and of course the famous sheftalia(pork wrapped in caul fat) and pork kontosouvli. have a bottle(or two) of xynistery, the regional grape variety, to accompany your meal. suddenly this seems like a great plan, right?
end your feast in the most delightful way by selecting the anari cheese mousse with honey and baklava leaf.
finally, try to get up, thank your chef and leave with a giant smile on your face.
so go my friends and enter the karatello mood!
