Mix it with olive oil and vinegar for an authentic Greek salad dressing. It is delicious added to roasted Greek potatoes with lemon.
Use it with slow roasted leg of lamb, braised in garlic and lemon to create a luscious sauce. Have you tried my lamb burger with feta recipe? Mix it right into the ground lamb.
Add it to Greek style green beans with tomato and stew until the beans are meltingly tender.
You can find many dishes like the ones I just mentioned at the well-known restaurants along Monroe Avenue in Greektown including The Golden Fleece, New Parthenon, and Pegasus Taverna.
Oh! And don’t miss the parade down historic Monroe Avenue to celebrate Greek Independence Day held every year in the spring.
Recently we dined at a nearby restaurant that we’ve never been to before called Ocean Prime.
To start, I ordered the Lobster Bisque topped with a sweet corn fritter. If you like lobster bisque you will like theirs.
John loves a good Caesar Salad. He ordered one with crisp romaine lettuce, Parmesan garlic dressing and brioche croutons. He asked for extra and they didn’t skimp on the anchovies.
For my main course I had Alaska Halibut with lobster gnocchi, spring peas and lemon jus. It was very tasty.
John opted for the Sea Scallops with Parmesan risotto, English peas in a citrus Vinaigrette. It was delicious.
The service was good. The room was beautifully appointed. We will definitely dine there again. Here’s their menu.
Greek Independence Day on March 25th commemorates the nation’s declaration of independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1821 after being occupied for 400 years. These photos were taken today at the Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade in historic Greektown.

One year ago, Bobby Laskaris opened KouZina, Greek Street Food, in Royal Oak. Ever since, crowds of people have flocked to see just what Greek street food was and a trend began. This is the real deal.
KouZina | Greek Street Food on Main Street in Royal Oak threw an anniversary party honoring their first year in business. The party was attended by many local Greek food lovers, including the Original Olga (Loizon). Of course, owner Bobby Laskaris and his staff served delicious Greek food and pastries.
Featured artist “Slaw” showed his paintings at the event and the restaurant became an art gallery. You’ll see in the video that one very special painting was created just for Bobby. Slaw described his artistic style as a cross between Hanna-Barbera cartoons and the modern look of the 1950s and ’60s.
I blogged about KouZina in January if you’d like to read my review and recommendation of one of my favorite Greek eateries. Bravo Bobby!
