Mediterranean cuisine is deemed as one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. With dishes using healthy ingredients such as whole grain, fish, olive oil and vegetables, Greek cuisine is something you'd want to eat every day.
I admire Greek cuisine, however, there isn't a lot of options for this particular cuisine in Manila and I was glad to be introduced to Kos Greek Ouzeri at UP Town Center.
Kos Greek Ouzeri is owned by Chef Mats Loo, who also owns First Gourmet Academy in Quezon City.
An Ouzeri is a Greek tavern that serves ouzo or Greek liquor along with mezedes and other small dishes.
|Mezedes Sampler of 5|
We started with Mezedes Sampler of 5 (Php 375) served with unlimited breads. We tried Melitzanosalata, Tzatziki, Hummus, Artichoke Spinach Spread and Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Spread. Melitzanosalata is roasted eggplant with garlic, white wine vinegar, olive oil and lemon juice while Tzatziki is yogurt cucumber dip flavored with garlic, dill, olive oil and lemon juice. I enjoyed all dips but I'm partial with Hummus, Artichoke Spinach Spread and Melitzanosalata.
