Little Greece

Chloe, I finally went to that Greek restaurant!! Yes, at last! And it was great, I don't remember ever being so excited about food: everything was so delicious...I felt guilty not being able to eat more - a lot of food went to waste because the dishes kept coming and coming....my stomach couldn't handle any more... This is probably the only greek restaurant in Portugal, or at least in the North, that's why this is such a big deal for me. hehe

The ceiling has false wine leaves and grapes, to make it look like the real taberna!

The restaurant has two small rooms - my room had only 4 small tables so it feels really cozy.

My attempts of imitating Chloe's food porn were totally ruined by the flash of my camera - this one got away because I turned the flash off but it was too dark. A better picture below...


I am very bad at names so the dishes that had greek names...I forgot them. This had spinach and cheese - it was delicious.

This is me: you can't really see my new haircut but it's there! :)
I hope to become a regular costumer of Hellenikon but I can't go too often for my portuguese digestive system isn't used to the eccentricities of greek food :/ sad.

There must be a certain "look" to Greek restaurants because this certainly did remind me of Chloe's food porn posts.

The photos are lovely :) I love little restaurants with small rooms - especially as it gets to be winter here. It feels so cozy!

Devil Mood said...

FB: Oh thanks, that was really sweet :)

Stephanie: oooh sexy picture! It was really cozy, despite the fact that we're still having a late summer here...

The restaurant looks wonderful, and the food looks yummy. I've never been to a Greeek restaurant, but in an early life (before marriage) I used to go out with a Greek guy, so have tasted some of their food ... mmmmmmm.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
Take care, Meow

Devil Mood said...

Meow: ooh, that was an interesting insight to your previous life. Nice to know ;) Take care!

Greek restaurants outside Greece tend to look the same - this one looks like at least two of the one's we've got in Oslo.. The food is great, though, and very "sociable". And there's nothing wrong with your photos :)

Devil Mood said...

Scholiast: well, I'm glad cause this one was really nice :)
