Day 176/366: Meze for lunch

I love Greek food, and if you didn't know, it goes far beyond the pita Gyros! Meze is one of my favorite ways of enjoying it because you get to sample so many different dishes at once. It is like the Greek version of the Spanish Tapas. They use so many fresh ingredients, lots of seafood and cheeses (fried cheese called Saganaki being one of my favorites, together with the many variations you get served Feta: fresh as it is, baked, spiced up, grilled... yum) and what they call salads, which almost always at least includes tzatzikiand taramosalata . There will also almost always also be keftethes (meatballs), Tiropites (little cheese pies ), dolmathakia me Kima (stuffed wine leaves) marithes (whole fried whitebait smelts), calamari and little baby squids served... everything cooked with olive oil.

 

Looking through my pictures, this is about the only one I shot this day! Lazy day at the beach mostly again, gearing up for our two day road trip the next few days.
