  1. Hi samscafeamericain. Think those Greek mums must have seen you coming! Hope you enjoy the moussaka. Kitty
  2. Hi again, I only just spotted this post (I haven't checked in for a while). Thanks, Pat, it looks rather interesting. Think I'll pop in, myself, and see what I can learn. Kind regards Kitty is post
  3. Ah, Pat! Now, these sound ideal for Mediterranean provisions! I had heard of a great deli in Bank St, it is most probably Scheherazade. Will try to pop in myself before my Greek friends come over. Must check out Enjoy also. I managed to find out that The Taste of Greece and Cyprus Market(part of The West End Festival), you mentioned the other day, is on Sat 9 June, 10.00 to 15.00 at St Luke's, unfortunately I won't be around. That would have been an excellent opportunity to have a chat with some of the Glasgow/Greek community, I may have even have met someone I knew from way, way back! Thank you, again, for all your helpful info! Please keep it coming!! Kitty
  4. Thanks for those links, Maggs. I'll use their email addresses. I appreciate your input! Please keep the info coming, everyone, I'm really getting into the swing of this research on all good things Greek in Glasgow! Regards Kitty
  5. Thank you so much for your reply, Pat. I certainly did not expect to hear from anyone so quickly. I rather fancy the idea of going along to check out the Greek and Cypriot Market at the West End festival in June. Perhaps you could tell me where I could find further details on that event. There doesn't appear to be any shortage of Greek restaurants, anyway. And, I shall take advantage of your kind offer of your having a chat with your Greek friends on their return. I am very grateful for your help, so far. It is so nice to be in touch with Glasgow again. Regards Kitty
  6. I do, so, hope that someone can give me some information and perhaps a little guidance. I lived in the West End many, many years ago but moved away to London and have, to my deep regret, lost touch with what is now going on, in and around what I remember being one of the most vibrant and exciting areas of Glasgow. I have a couple of very good Greek friends who are coming over from Athens to live in Glasgow for the next few years and I would like to do some homework on their behalf before they arrive. They both also lived in the West End 30 years ago when we were all students. We knew it pretty well and were very happy here. At that time there was a relatively large Greek community, mostly from Cyprus (many of whom settled here after the conflict in Cyprus in 1974) who would attend St Luke’s Greek Orthodox Church and do some of their food shopping at a great wee shop in Great Western Road called The Mediterranean Delicatessens, sadly long gone. Now, that information and guidance that I am hoping for comes in the form of telling me if: 1. There is still a Greek community here? 2. Are there any specific areas in Glasgow where the Greek community prefer to live? 3. There are any Greek/Turkish supermarkets and food shops around the West End today? 4. If not, where is the nearest place they could go to buy typical Mediterranean provisions? 5. There are any Greek restaurants in the West End or environs? I will be immensely grateful for even the slightest piece of encouraging information that I can pass on to these lovely friends of mine. Thank you so much Regards Kitty
