As I type this, I am sitting at the Wits Art Mueseum – better known as WAM.
The reason I am typing this now is because I am currently eating the most delicious spanakopita and had to start telling you about it right away!
It is of utter most importance that everyone come and try this glorious Greek pastry at least once.
I’ve tried my fair share of spanakopita, including in Greece (Santorini to be more specific) and none compare to this one.
The phyllo pastry is wonderfully crisp and light. It adds great texture and surprising flavour! A huge plus for me is that it is filled to the brim with spinach. There is also not too much cheese in the mixture, which I prefer. It makes the whole thing less rich and more enjoyable to eat.
The one thing I will say, however, is that the bottom of the pastry is a little oily; I’ve had to leave that part out, but it’s a tiny sacrifice when I relect on what I’ve just gobbled down with immense pleasure!
WAM is run by the on-campus restaurant, Olives and Plates which is really quite lovely. It is no wonder that the food at WAM is so successful.
