I’ve never been to a restaurant with no menu so I was very interested to see what Jim’s Greek Tavern would be like.
Since it’s very hard not to love Greek food, it wasn’t that worrying to me that there was no menu.
Soon after we arrived at Jim’s Greek Tavern we were given saganaki, grilled octopus and bread with dips.
I tried the bread first and it was some of the best bread I have ever tasted. The fact that it was fresh out of the oven and was still warm made it even better.
Next I tried the octopus. It was very nice and wasn’t too chewy. I didn’t try the saganaki because I’m not a fan of cheese, but Mum and Dad thought it was pretty good.
Next we were given lamb yiros, lamb skewers and snapper with chips. I had the lamb skewers first and they were really good. The lamb was so tender. Next I tried the yiros. It was also very nice and it was in easy-to-eat bit-sized pieces. So soft and tender and some tasty crunchy bits.
I had the snapper next. It was soft and delicious but it had quite a few bones in it.
We ordered some baklava for dessert, but I was so full I couldn’t eat another thing.
