Fantastic Greek Cuisine in Wellington!

Oikos (pronounced EE-kos), meaning family, is located in the burbs of Miramar, aka Wellywood. It’s enhanced Wellingtonian’s availability to access authentic Greek food. Following nicely in The Greek Foodtruck’s greek footsteps of course. Theo Papouis is living his dream, by kindly sharing with us a taste of his Greek heritage, and welcoming us into his Greek family, via his beautiful food and wine, based on Ancient Hellenic cuisine.
