- Trio of Dips - Tzatziki, Melitzanosalata, Taramasalata
- Hallomi and Thyme Cigars
- Kolokithokeftedes; Zucchini and Fetta Fritters
- Halloumi with Pomegranate Molasses
- Chargrilled Octopus
All the dishes were delicious - traditional and flavourful, simple and oh so effective. The pita bread was soft, warm and pillowy and the perfect counterfoil to the creamy cool tzatziki, salty umami laden taramasalata and the mellow and rich eggplant melitzanasalata. We had a small accident when beer bottle fell into bread but a new dish of toasty warm doughy goodness soon replaced the unfortunate demise of our previous plate. I think my favourite was the eggplant but I definitely ate my fair share of the others to try and reach that conclusion and had to keep tasting to make sire my decision stood!
Other notables were the zucchini fritters; more oozy, melted stringy cheese than zucchini but who can turn down melted cheese. And on that note, fried halloumi - always a crowd pleaser especially with the tang of the pomegranate seeds and molasses.
Chargrilled octopus offered a cleaner, more acrid flavour against the richness of the dips and cheese especially with the zesty kick of squeezed lemon.
