Recently, we went to a great new local restaurant. It’s a Greek restaurant, and the food was delicious. Decorated in blue and white, with fruit and olive trees all around, it was a little bit like going back to Greece. It’s called Kyma, which means “wave” in Greek.
We started with the classic salad. Here in the States, anything with feta cheese is labeled Greek Salad, but this i s the real deal. No lettuce, just ripe tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and feta cheese with a little oregano on top, and a drizzle of Greek olive oil. Sometimes, at your little taverna, you will find some peppers, or olives, or capers added in. Oh my … this one really took me back to eating simple, fresh, well prepared food in beachside tavernas in the Greek Islands.
Another traditional Greek food is eggplant and zucchini sliced up and lightly fried. So good, and these paper thin slices and tzatziki sauce were a nice twist on the traditional, while still keeping it real, and simple. Those little things you see around are pieces of fried cheese, another Greek staple.
If you ever find yourself in my neck of the woods, this is one wave you’ll want to catch.
