Yummy Greek dishes: Agios Tavern (17. July 2016)

| September 6, 2016 | 0 Comments

The heaven of Greek dips – that is how I would describe the Agios tavern. As an amuse bouche, a “Xinomisithra” dip was served. Do not ask me what exactly that is as I have absolutely no clue – but it was quite nice.


The “lettuce salad” (EUR 5.00) was served with fresh onions and dill and prepared with a bit of olive oil and while it looked incredibly boring and ‘green’ it was actually delicious in its simplicity.


The next spread / dip we picked from the menu was a “Taramosalata (roe mixed with bread and olive oil)” (EUR 5.00) and was definitely not what I had expected given the thing was called “salata” in Greek (which I wrongly assumed to mean “salad”).


The “spicy cheese salad” (EUR 5.00) was again not really salad but another spread. And while it did look a bit dull I absolutely liked it as it was cheesy like goat cheese but more in a cottage cheese consistency but it was quite spicy.


As a main course I went for “Mousaka” which is basically “minced beef meat with onions, parsley, spices, mint, sandwiched between layers of eggplant and potatoes, topped with a bechamel sauce” (EUR 10.00). And to me, it really looked like lasagna but once you had your first bite you easily realized that it only looked like lasagna but was actually quite different in taste. Definitely way more potato-y.


The bread which was served with the spreads was nice in the sense that they put quite a couple of different breads in that basket and they were actually tasty.


As a last course, the “fruit platter” was served and while I did not like the honey melon the night before, this time the fruit were great.


You can either sit on the porch which is lovely, or you sit “in the streets” (with your own table of course but still you sit “in the streets” making it quite busy at times). The waitress did a wonderful job – although she was inside the restaurant, she immediately brought me a new knife when mine fell to the ground. Price-wise, the offer is also quite fine which is not only true for the dishes but also for the beverages, i.e. a bottle of Mythos accounts for EUR 3.50 and a bottle of water (1L) for EUR 2.00.

The Agios taverna is really the heaven of spreads – I tried three marvelous spreads – definitely something I can recommend!
