-My new favourite shop in my neighbourhood is Paul. A new option in the centre of Nicosia, which I liked very much.

-Could you reveal a well-hidden city gem?

-Although it is not a big secret, I’ll say it for those who don’t know it. Valtou Rigani in Nicosia. It is also value for money.

-A restaurant that holds a special place in your heart? A recommended dish?

-For some years now, at the city centre you can find Boutique Patisserie, where my friend Mariella Christou makes her wonderful sweets.

-Which place do you remember fondly?

-The memories we all have from our childhood are always the best. I spend my childhood at Ayioi Omoloyites, where our home was. Near there, was Mondial confectionery, which was popular for its chocolate cake. Since I was 5, I used to go there every day to get it.
