Cypriot Souvlaki

In Cyprus, Souvlaki refers to the small chunks of meat on a skewer, as well as the whole package of it being contained in a large pita alongside Tomato, Cucumber, Onion, Parsley & Sheftalia.
Cypriot Style Souvlaki has a pocket in the middle so it is not wrapped around the meat and salad.
Like all grilled meat dishes in Cyprus, Souvlakia are always accompanied by fresh lemon quarters, and plain thick yogurt or tzatziki.

Sheftalia is a traditional Cypriot food which is a type of crépinette, a sausage without skin, that uses caul fat to wrap the ingredients rather than sausage casing.
Caul fat is transparent and naturally fatty. The filling is made of ground pork or lamb shoulder or leg mixed with finely chopped onion and parsley, salt, and pepper and formed into small round balls. These balls are then placed on the spread caul fat and squares of caul fat are cut around them and wrapped, making little sausages. Sheftalia are then grilled until golden brown.

Cyprus is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Syria. It is the third largest and third most populated island in the Mediterranean, and a member state of the European Union.
Cyprus is located west of Syria and Lebanon, northwest of Israel and Palestine, north of Egypt and east of Greece.


Koupes (plural of koupa) were traditionally a street finger-food in Cyprus. The mince pork meat croquettes were served as a snack or as part of a Meza dish and remain a popular Cypriot menu item today.
Koupe crust is made of bulgur wheat, flour, oil, salt and stuffed with ground meat, onions, parsley and spices.
