New Menu Items at Zorba's

Last time I was at Zorba's I took the opportunity to try a couple of the new items on their menu - the Terokafteree, or "Fire Feta," which is a spicy feta cheese spread served with two large pitas, and Melitzanosalata, or "Baba Ganouz," which is Zorba's take on the eggplant dip with olive oil, garlic and lemon juice which is served with pitas. Both are gorgeous. The Fire Feta really is hot though, so keep the bites on the smaller side. The Baba is fresh and creamy and a great addition to the menu. My favorite items are still the Hummus, Aegean Salad with Grilled Souvlaki Skewers (chicken or pork tenderloin), the Pizza Santorini (which is topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, yero meat, feta cheese, fresh sliced tomatoes, red onions and Kalamata olives) and the Mousaka (layers of freshly pan-fried eggplant, potatoes, ground beef with herbs all baked with a top layer of bechamel sauce). Zorba's is fun and the food is tasty and inexpensive. Their patio is the perfect place to enjoy it all on a not too crazy hot summer's evening.
