We had a lovely dinner at Ouzeri in West End last night. We had tried to go to the local pub but it was full of happy British and Irish Lions supporters- some in kilts. Sadly they had no room for us! So we took a drive to West End and stumbled upon Ouzeri. There was a table for 20 set up next to our wee table in the corner but fortunately we are quick eaters - plus they were keen for us to free up the table- so we were in and out in an hour. We were very pleasantly surprised; this was not the usual stodgy unimaginative Greek food you can come across so often. We had an eggplant dip which was tiny and well flavoured dices of the vegetable with thin and delicious pieces of pita bread. Mr Pickings had moussaka which he said was excellent and the potatoes were beautifully flavoured. I had calamari and succulent small pieces of octopus with a garlicky cucumber dip and Greek salad. The place was packed and had a fantastic atmosphere; and prices are very reasonable. As Mr Pickings said- it reminded him of the Plaka in Athens in a good way! Hop along readers!
