Greece is the word: Philip Vakos' second restaurant brings Cretan flavours to Swan Street
Having perfected his meat-roasting skills at Spitiko, MasterChef contestant Philip Vakos has opened his second Melbourne restaurant, Bahari (meaning spice), in Richmond. Philip’s Cretan grandmothers (whose culinary mantra was: "Keep it simple, keep them guessing") would be proud of their boy’s traditional menu, which features shared plates of chargrilled octopus, fried zucchini flowers and slow-cooked lamb.
179 Swan Street
