Sesame coated Greek feta cheese, pan fried and drizzled with honey
It came out steamingly hot remisicent of Chinese prawn toast but in appearance. The cheese is soft and tangy, and then there's the crunchy sesame seeds and some toasty tones followed by sweet honey. Nice enough but will probably try a different version next time.
We also have a starter from the specials board which are the Greek rissoles / meatballs with a tomato sauce. Traditional and rustic the meat balls are flavoursome and comforting.
Main course wise we go with:
SEAFOOD PLATTER FOR ONE
Selection of fresh seafood (fillet of fish, fried calamari, white bait, char grilled king prawns and charcoal octopus). Served with green salad, baked potato and skordalia
And also another special which is a lamb stew with risoni pasta which came ins a small earthenware pot.
Classically Greek, these two dishes were simple but effective and the seafood platter for one was very generous.
I enjoyed the Greek doughnuts. The baklava was kinda small and weedy looking but obviously pleasant enough for Steve to eat them both.
The custard cake was overset and an unpleasant texture for me so that was left behind. And in in just over one hour, we were out the door. Not quite the long date night I had in mind but not necessarily a bad thing.
Alpha Ouzeri is a traditional Greek taverna so as a local eatery it's not a bad option. I wouldn't necessarily travel far as I don't the food is that much of a draw. Our experience was fine but I didn't like being so close to the large party as they had a tendency to get up, switch seats, stand over us to chatter etc which didn't make it the most relaxing of times.
