A new Greek restaurant and takeaway has opened on Bold Street.

Bold Street in Liverpool's city centre is a hot-spot for restaurants, cafes, shops and more - and its new addition is open now.

Laros is home to authentic, high-quality Greek street food. The venue, which is a hybrid between a restaurant and takeaway, is the first of its kind, with stunning interiors for those who are dining in, as well as delicious dishes which can also be enjoyed at home.

Owner Nikolaos Fylladitakis has worked in the hospitality industry for many years, owning his own restaurants in the city.

Originally from Crete, the entrepreneur is keen to showcase authentic Greek cuisine that is of the highest quality, with the majority of Laros' ingredients, including the meat and dairy, sourced and imported directly from Greece. Other ingredients are locally sourced using trusted independents.

Laros aims to deliver the true authenticity of Greek street food, with delicious chicken or pork gyros and chicken, pork or lamb souvlaki.

Other menu staples include Laros’ Better Than Halloumi Talagani cheese fries, as well as the No Carb Box and vegan pita wrap, which is made with a traditional island recipe for chickpea fritters. There’s also a range of fresh and authentic salads on the menu including a classic Greek salad, a Politiki cabbage-based salad and Cretan Dakos salad with tomatoes and olives.

For dessert, Laros is introducing Loukoumades to Liverpool for the very first time. Loukoumades are little sweet Greek donut balls served traditionally with honey syrup and chopped walnuts but Laros has put its own twist on the classic with the addition of lavender to its honey syrup. For those who crave chocolate for dessert, Laros offers Loukoumades with white chocolate or hazelnut filling.

Laros also boasts a selection of Greek soft drinks, including LOUX - orange, lemon and sour cherry, a variety of beers including Mythos, Alfa, Fix and Keo and a selected range of local Greek wines. Laros is also serving a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic slushies - perfect for enjoying in the summer weather.

Nikolaos Fylladitakis said: "Laros means delicious and this is what we promise to you: high quality, healthy, authentic Greek street food.

"Our aim is to guide you through a journey of true Greek flavours as we would enjoy them back home, and to put an end to the misconception that street food cannot be made with the finest ingredients and the care of fine dining.

"In Crete, "philoxenia", i.e the love for strangers, eagerness to show hospitality, is the core of our culture. When we welcome you into our home, we are telling you something; we want you to feel part of the family, to enjoy our finest wine, our best cut of meat, to feel our culture and travel through our history.

"We take great pride in offering our guests our best food and warmest stories. Here in Laros, we promise you just that, a delicious warm welcome and an introduction to the real Greek cuisine, an amalgamation of street food, authenticity and comfort."

Laros is open seven days a week from 12pm until 11pm. There are no bookings for tables, Laros accepts walk-ins and collections.
