Marinated in Petimezi, garlic, mint and sherry vinegar, these tender shined lamb chops are flame grilled to order, drizzled with Petimezi sauce, sprinkled with fresh herbs and served on cumin scented jasmine rice with a side of paprika and mint yogurt. We paired ours with Furious (dark ale), Roditis, Tetramythos (white) Rodamo, Nemea and Oenodea for a perfect light and tasty meal!
Turkey Gyros? There's a Gyradiko, especially popular among the students in Thessaloniki, which has expanded its Gyros specialty into an over-the-top selection of meats roasted on the vertical rotisserie. In additional to the standard, pressed Gyros, they offer Pork, Chicken, Turkey and even Pheasant.
Oh, YUM! WILD-CAUGHT Jumbo scallops, shrimp and clams sautéed with onions, garlic and thyme served on linguine. Squeeze the lemon. Make it rain gold!
Even MEAT eaters love our Kounoupidi Yachni--a traditional braised dish made with lots of onions, fresh tomatoes and vegetables--here, organic cauliflower and seasonings.
Shared or ordered as a half portion, Kounoupidi is naturally sweet and toothsome and accompanies Spinach Feta Boughatsa or a skewer of meat handily
Enjoy with a brown ale, Roditis white or Lafkioti Agiorgitiko
We judge Greek restaurants by their preparation of this singular dish! All-natural lamb foreshank seared then braised in white wine and EVO Greek olive oil....for hours. Finally simmered with fresh organic artichoke hearts, carrots and scallions then finished with the traditional Avgolemono sauce and fresh dill
We enjoy ours with a light dry Xinomavro wine from Chrisohoou
Does the name say it all? Doesn't even begin! Fresh pork shoulder from our friends from the Southeast Minnesota Food Network braised in olive oil, lemon juice, white wine and ground coriander seed. When the meat begins to fall off the bones, we add the heirloom medley of potatoes, and wedged hearts of Savoy cabbage. Everything in this dish melts and crumbles playing the sweet of the pork and cabbage against the savory and piquant sauce.
Sophie, who doesn't like pork at all, tasted it, had another plate and exclaimed, "Wow, mom, this is good. This is diviiiiiine!" and pinched my cheek.
