Would you like to go to Greece next Sunday? And you do not even have to leave Paris! Head to Yaya, aka Juan Arbelaez's Greek restaurant in Halle Secrétan for a crazy brunch to enjoy with friends or family!
On Sundays, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., Yaya expects you for a relaxed and Greece-inspired brunch. And whoever thinks about a Greek brunch also means a lot of mezzes like in the tavernas in Mykonos! And speaking of food, what does this sun-filled brunch feed us with?
For €36 per adult, Yaya makes you travel with plenty of Greek specialties to get off from the unlimited brunch first. On the menu, warm pitas to dip in hummus, tzatziki, Kalamata olive tapenade or tirokafteri - a delicious mix of bell peppers and feta - and plenty of puff pastries, tiropita (feta and honey puff pastries) and spanakopita (spinach and feta puff pastries), as well as great salads, lentils and arugula, and for a nice touch of colors, gorgeous yellow and red cherry tomatoes and green bell peppers.
As for warm dishes, Yaya does not skip brunch staples, eggs such as sunny-side up or mushroom omelette. Or go for the pancakes, or meatball lovers can get a mountain of kefta in a still warm pan! As for drinks, note hot drinks, as well as fresh fruit juices are unlimited and through self service!
Then, head to the upper floor of Yaya Halle Secrétan to move to mains to choose between seasonal moussaka with celery and carrots, the black Kalamata olive chicken, oregano, semi-dried tomatoes and potatoes; fish of the day (we got swordfish when we came with seasonal vegetables and fennel broth with saffron and citrus fruits); and Greek pastas with seafood, ouzo and herbs.
Then, get some desserts for a great final touch: head back to the unlimited buffet to discover the sweet specialties prepared by Yaya: fresh fruits, and great slices of watermelon, Greek yogurt twisted with homemade granola, as well as galagktoboureko (semoline cake with hibiscus syrup), and Portokalopita (sweet orange cake).
After this, you are sure you will be full!
The good thing is Yaya's brunch is 100% kids-friendly between noon and 2 p.m., with a special €16 set menu and colorings at their disposal. Then, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., the brunch switches to a more festive ambiance! Enjoy the same menu but play bingo from 3 p.m. held by Drag Queen Minima Festé - the queen of Drag bingo - so you can try to win ouzo, cocktails and champagne!
A great deal to have a festive Sunday!
