Interview with Mr. Poli Economou
Owner of Aero Fish and Chips in Nicosia
Cyprus Alive had a very interesting conversation with the owner of Aero Fish and Chips Mr. Poli Oikonomou. Read the interview below, which will bring to the surface a lot that one can find and enjoy in this complex restaurant, with the simple view.
1. How long has your restaurant been operating?
Aero Fish and Chips has been operating for three years. It started with the thought of offering Nicosia a product that could not be found in Nicosia: first, authentic English Cod Fish and Chips and second, the best steak one can eat in Cyprus.
2. Fish and Chips but also steak! This is very interesting. What else do you offer?
First, authentic Entrocote Steak drizzled with the famous Café de Paris sauce, a sauce whose recipe is secret and found by the demanding visitor only in a few parts of the world. Also, all kinds of steaks and every afternoon a legume with fish. Here I will add that in our restaurant with only 24 hours notice we can order any food our customers want. Fresh fish, stewed, high cuisine, even lobster. And of course our award-winning, on a pancyprian level, Fish and Chips, which is made only with cod from the North Sea, made with a mixture of beer butter.
3. And where can one find you?
We are located in Agios Dometios, t.k. 2369, Gravias Street 3, near the Coca Cola factory.
4. What makes your business stand out?
Aero Fish and Chips is a small family business with a big vision, focusing on people and good food. As you can see, while the visitor enters a place reminiscent of a simple and fragrant Fish and Chips in London, this place travels you to different parts of the world, through the best dishes that these places offer and aspires you to travel.
5. This is enhanced by all the planes in photos on the walls! And what are your future plans and goals?
My goals are to be able to offer Paris, New York and London here in Cyprus in the dishes we will offer to our people. Each dish is a journey of taste and thought. And the moments when someone longs for good local food or an exotic dish that they would like to try, all they have to do is order it from us 24 hours in advance.
6. What else would you like to add?
My thought and goal is a restaurant that will be the hot spot where everyone can find, what they want, to be able to change forms and tastes, depending on what desire there is at the moment. The space is simple, austere, but our kitchen is complex, with unlimited possibilities.
Thank you, Mr. Economou, we wish you all the best.
