Ouzo loves the sun, tasteful “meze” and good company. Small bites, sharp (spicy) and appetizer flavors. “Meze” is a selection of small dishes served to accompany alcoholic drinks like ouzo as a course or as appetizers. The key element of Ouzo-meze is variety. The contrast and the richness of flavors are necessary to have the best ouzo- experience. An “Ouzo-meze” may consist of seafood dishes such as grilled octopus, satled fishes such as sardines, lakerda or kolios. All may be included, along with fresh salads, fava beans, grilled cheeses, called saganaki and olives. Do not forget to try steamed shellfish and sea urchin.
