ITS TOO EARLY TO GO TO HELL…BUT WE DID ANYWAY.

because we are all busy people, i went out last sunday with di + her sister daph for an uber early birthday celebration with their friend yijun at Hellenic Republic,  a Greek restaurant in Brunswick.

freakin tired after a week of workworkwork, so definitely welcomed FOOD this night! and it did not disappoint – amongst other things, we ordered the staples; saganaki, moussaka, slow cooked lamb….and it was BOMB! my favourites for the night was probably the saganaki, fasolaskia [a fresh green bean salad with pine nuts] and the bougasta [ a semolina custard pastry…urgh, so GOOD].
