Review

The movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding had its focus on traditional values for Paula to come to terms with her cultural heritage. Now there is a place in Goa perched on the rocky cliffs where one can sit on cushioned cane chairs, sip on Ouzo and sample the cultural flavour of Greece. This open-air Taverna features fare specifically chosen by owner Mariketty. She creates the homely atmosphere found in most Greek houses. Try her Tzatzika Dip (a creamy combo of yoghurt, garlic, cucumber and olive oil) or the Tiro Kef Teri (a spicy feta cheese dip) with pita bread. The Mussels with Ouzo Sauce - you would be excused if you exclaim 'oou' after every slurp. As the moon shimmers on Thalassa (Greek for sea), start with the traditional Greek salad (Horiatiki). Drenched in kalamata olive oil topped with oregano, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and green pepper jostle with one another. If you prefer seafood order the Baked Kingfish Fillet - the bouquet of the fish cooked with oregano and dill, wrapped in a banana leaf. But the famous Greek meat preparations, soft and succulent enough to transport you to Corfu-Mariketty's original home, still rule the menu. The Moussakas (beef/lamb or even vegetarian) or the Lamb Gyros ooze flavours that will have you begging for more. Once a month, Mariketty plans to have Greek feast nights. With syrtaki - a dance with the snapping of fingers and breaking of plates - there is no need to watch celebrations through reel life. Move over Toula; it is happening here in Goa. As the gentle breeze wraps you in its embrace, try an exciting variety of desserts - from home-made Greek yoghurt to rich cheesecakes. One does not need to be invited to a Greek wedding; this is a repast to remember.
