As I recall, this is what we ordered, with my editorial comments. Feel free to add…
Saganaki - Fried Greek Kefalograviera Cheese. A mild cheese wrapped in phyllo. A table favorite.
Gigantes - Savory tomato braised imported giant lima beans. Yum.
Ktapodi - Charcoal grilled octopus. Great flavor but I thought it was a little mushy without much char on the those very thin ends that I want and it needed.
Dolmadakia - Stuffed Grape Leaves with Rice. I’m used to the Turkish version of stuffed grape leaves, usually served cold and so wasn’t expecting them to be warm (Duh! They were listed under hot appetizers). Served with remnants of a light tomato sauce. The grape leaf wrapper was fairly thick which I enjoyed as I like the leaves themselves. Others not so much.
Loukaniko - Seasoned Greek Sausage. We had 2 orders, we could have used more.
Prasini - Salad with romaine, scallions, fresh dill, and feta tossed with Greek Olive Oil and Vinegar. I never had this before. It was very good but I think it could have used more dill.
Assorted Cold Dips - Skordalia, Tzatziki, Taramosalata, Melitzanosalata, and Fava (which is hummus-like but a yellow split pea dip). I would have been quite happy have this for lunch on its own though the skordalia could have used a touch more garlic.
Arni Kokkinisto - Lamb braised in Savory Tomato Sauce with Orzo. I have GOT to figure out how to make this. It was delicious. Fall apart tender but with just the slightest bit chewiness in a really good way.
Baklava - I’m not a baklava fan (hate walnuts) but it was well received by everyone else.
Galaktoboureko - Custard in Phyllo Dough topped with homemade Honey Syrup. Not to sweet, which is the way dessert should be.
It was great to share food, talk and ouzo with such a lovely group of people. @CurlzNJ @seal @NotJrvedivici as well as our non-HO guests. We’re looking forward to another get together. Afghani anyone?
