Kos Cucina

The Greek word "kos" means a specific island in Greece says Chef Matt Loo of Kos Greek Ouzeri.  Established  5 years ago, its staying power is a testament to its good food that is made from scratch and whose ingredients are mostly imported from Greece.

After all per Chef Matt, being owners of a Culinary School as well,   it is imperative to set a good example for all his students

Thus in Kos Greek Ouzeri , you will taste the difference of dishes made by hand from the sauce to the dips, to the freshly made bread , etc.

We were served the following :

meatballs with herbs & spices

Crispy, juicy and absolutely scrumptious it is a perfect starter to a Greek meal

Kos Salata 
mixed greens with sundried tomatoes etc

The greens were crisp. The simple vinaigrette served to enhance the lettuce and the nuttiness of the arugula. I loved the sundried tomatoes.. The thing with salad is there is no camouflaging it if the ingredients are not fresh.

grilled herb salmon

The salmon was succulent and grilled perfectly. It was of a good size for its price. Again the key ingredient should be of good quality which it was at Kos Greek Ouzerie

Im not a fan of eggplant. But Kos converted me to one. This was one good moussaka. I even forgot that it was mostly eggplant

herb roasted chicken

Like the salmon, the chicken was perfectly roasted. The skin was crunchy outside but the chicken retained its moistness inside.

Chicken Souvlaki
skewered chicken

At the risk of repeating myself, this skewered chicken was also perfectly grilled. I loved how moist and flavorful the chicken pieces were.

Greek Pasta
red sauce penne
The pasta was perfectly al dente. The red sauce was made from scratch. I loved the salty component provided by the crumbled feta and the acidity and sweetness from the grilled tomatoes

chicken soup with orzo pasta

The soup was filling and hearty with hints of acidity.

custard pie with filo

fried dough


Among the 3 desserts served, my favorite was the baklava. I loved the pistacchio nuts  and the filo pastry. A perfect ending to a sublime meal


I would not mind travelling all the way from Mandaluyong to reach this restaurant in Quezon City just to get a taste again of authentic Greek food made by hand. I hope they put up a branch somewhere in BGC, Ortigas or Makati soon.

Highly recommending

Kos Greek Ouzeri is located at the ground floor of UP Town Center Katipunan Avenue Diliman Quezon City
