Who better to try this out with than my three favourite Greek friends - D, N and Z. Would it measure up to what they were used to at home and with family? They were keen to share their thoughts. The Express Lunch for $30 looked great on paper and also includes a glass of house wine, beer or soft drink.
First out was some bread accompanied by a lovely oil bottle and some rock salt. Some might not like this as a starter but I love it. There's sometimes nothing better than a quick dip before eating and sloshing some fresh bread in oil and a dash of salt is great.
Perama’s famous slow braised shoulder lean lamb with paprika, olive oil, garlic, barbecued with a lemon, olive oil baste & served with baked oregano lemon potatoes & string beans. Wow. It melted in your mouth and the subtle but noticeable smoky flavour set of the dish perfectly. This was a killer dish and should be on any list if you dine here.
I would certainly go back to Xanthi in a flash! It has an Arabian nights feel to it, great food and good service. Its a real winner.
