Bread for salad and baba ganoush.
Simon came to town to convert Dianna from his girlfriend to his fiancee. She said "yes."
To celebrate, we met up at Zorba's in Baltimore's Greektown for dinner. Dai's parents-in-law and their clan treated us to some fantastic and classic Greek food. It was all delicious and the octopus was some of the best I've ever eaten. Grilled to perfection.
The food was good. The company was great and we had a fantastic time. I won't bore you with too much verbage. Just be sure to check it out when you come to visit, or propose.
Everyone gathered at the table.
Horiatiki Salata (Greek Village Salad) - Traditional village salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, green peppers, kalamata olives and feta with house dressing.
Fried Calamari. Rubbery.
Spanakopita - spinach, onion, dill and feta baked in layers of crispy phyllo dough.
Grilled Octopus - topped with olive oil and vinegar. Stellar.
Pastitio - noodles and beef topped with bechamel and baked.
Kontosouvli - marinated pork, roasted on a spit.

Gus insists that I eat more pork. I don't want to be disrespectful...
Galaktoboureko - custard wrapped in sweet phyllo dough.
