Well this week we had a taste for Greek food. Pat thought that Santorini would be the right spot. Now what says Greek more than an appetizer of flaming cheese. Saganaki for $8.
I thought their particular version was particularly tasty with several pieces of pita bread to go with it. On most of their dishes you have an option to substitute soup for salad for an extra buck. Something we both did. Pat for a garlic mushroom and me with Avgolememo (egg lemon soup).
Pat’s chicken finger sandwich was $9. I think all of their sandwiches are $9 with a side choice. Salad, rice, potatoes or green beans.
I ordered their special. Kreatopita or meat pie. It is a seasoned mixture of ground beef and lamb wrapped in a casing of phyllo dough. I didn’t realize that it was a platter,which means it is served with all the sides. In other words a bunch of food for $12.50. The soup I subbed for salad was excellent.
The broth was as good a chicken stock as any I have had, and the rich egg and lemon hanging out with the pasta made it much more than an ordinary chicken soup.
Each part of my meal was top-notch. I especially liked the main star; the Kreatopita. It was a savory treat wrapped in a crisp phyllo crust. The great thing about phyllo is that; when done properly; the crispness is multi layered. This was done properly.
Although I had to take half of my lunch home I still had to have some Baklava.
Their Baklava was delicious as everything else. They have a full bar and offered a few local brews on draft for $6.50. Downtown prices. I thought they used to offer carafes and half carafes of wine. Evidently I was mistaken. I know there are several Greek Restaurants in Indianapolis. I think that you may want to give this one a try the next time you want to get your Greek on.
