Lunch at Leo's Taverna

It's so hot here I can barely breath and function, so posting might be a little light until I can get back into the kitchen. Meanwhile, my dad and I went to lunch the other day at a great spot in Nelson called Leo's Taverna. They make Greek & Italian food, the portions are generous, and the price is very reasonable.

We had the Corfu Platter for two. This includes, Greek salad, rice, chicken souvlaki & beef souvlaki, hummus, pita, tzadziki, and dolmades. I don't like Greek salad, so my dad ate that while I had the rice. The souvlakis were amazing & cooked perfectly. I don't care for dolmades, either, but my dad hates olives, so it all worked out. The hummus is chunkier than most hummuses, but very well-balanced in flavour. For dessert there wasn't much on offer. My dad was really looking forward to some baklava and I would have had some tiramisu if they had it, but alas, they were out of both. So, Dad ordered a slice of Black Forest Cake, and I had a couple of bites. There are way better Black Forest Cakes our there, but this did in a pinch.
It was a great lunch and I came away really full!

I had no idea you had such tempertures way up there. Maybe you'll get some cooler weather soon - hope so!

Lunch looks good - I'd love a baklava too.

Now that is a platter of food! I don't blame you...I would run from the kitchen if it was that unbearable (and have been known to)! Now I'm craving baklava...(and haloumi for some reason...)...your lunch looks delish :D
