Being in a city with the most number of Greeks, after Athens and Thessaloniki, it would be amiss to leave without having had a Greek meal. Speaking to some friends and looking on the internet we decided to go to Salona. That did turn out to be a great choice.
The person who was working the front of house, Friday after ANZAC day lunch time, was very friendly. He welcomed us in. Asking us about our day and when we told him that this was our first time in Melbourne and first time in a Greek restaurant he said that we should leave it to him to get our food. He explained that he would get two degustation meals for the four of us.
The food was excellent. Started off with breads and dips along with a dips. There was tzatziki, tarama, faki and a pea dip. The pea dip did not find much favour with the youngsters. The second item was grilled saganaki with poached apricot. The cheese was lovely and the accompanying syrup/sauce was lovely. There was semolina dusted calamari, ouzo honey lamb ribs, a Greek slaw, and a moussaka.
All the food was extremely well done. All of us had a sampling of each of the items and left completely satisfied. Both with the food and the service.
