Posts Tagged ‘agnanti’

Abby is Greek. I like Greek food (study abroad, what?). We are great friends.

When I first moved to the city, Abby visited me and we went to Astoria to meet up with her Greek friend and he took us to a fabulous restaurant where we ordered what felt like the entire menu. Yesterday we went on an adventure to Bay Ridge to go to Agnanti Meze.

I have a takeout menu in which Abby starred everything we ordered, because she did all the ordering and I was just happy to be there.

The only thing I made us order was a Greek salad, which you could say is a boring thing to order, but traditional Greek salads are pretty much my favorite thing in the world.

I love tomatoes, cucumbers, and FETA!

This is ntakos: Cretan rusk, tomatoes, feta, olives, capers, oregano and olive oil. Abby says she cannot buy Cretan rusk anywhere in Michigan and she really wanted to try it, so we made sure Agnanti had it on the menu before we went.

Kolokythokeftedes Mykonos: zucchini and cheese croquets that were really good.

Beef bourek, which was maybe my favorite. The crust was homemade and phenomenal. I would order this again.

We also got vegetables pikilia: fried zucchini, eggplant, peppers and garlic mashed potatoes. Basically we got a lot of food.

There was a huge family sitting next to us and they kept ordering more and more food and it was kind of hilarious. The servers would come out carrying a bunch of plates and go back to the kitchen and come back out with their arms full of more. That’s just the Greek culture though. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and they ordered a bunch of appetizers and THEN the main course. I love Greek food. And I love Abby. She has left me now and I am very sad. She’s going to move here and have a classy housewarming party and make a ton of Greek dishes and it’s going to be great. Come back to Agnanti with me soon, Abby!
