Keo-The Beer of Cyprus MEZZE The Souvlakia
KEO is a Cypriot beer, the only domestic brand in widespread national distribution. It is a light straw-colored lager with a thick head, and is sometimes compared to a pilsner in taste. The beer is brewed in Limassol, in Cyprus. The beer won the 1987 brewing industry world bottled lager competition Gold Medal. I drunk it several times at home, and I have to say that it is really tasty and cheap!!
MEZZE: The food comes without ordering and won’t stop coming until you say so. It all starts with a fresh salad, pickled vegetables and capers and olives. The bread is freshly baked. Everything is so fresh, its simply great.Everything is served in small bowls and dishes.
Once they are emptied new ones are brought. Chicken cooked in cream, Lamb with lentils, roast beef with chutney… a perfect way of spending an evening.
I went to the Plaka Tavern. It was nice and the people there were really friendly. Unfortunately, we had no live music. But I do hope that next time I go there I'll get some!
Souvla, in Greek σο?βλα, is a popular dish from the island of Cyprus. It consists of large pieces of meat cooked on a long skewer over a charcoal barbecue. I ate it many times already and it was so delicious. I can't wait to grill some again!
I think I have lots of others things to try still! And it's good because I have time for it!
