Tuesday night, Brian and I celebrated his dad’s 60th birthday with his family at a delicious Indianapolis restaurant:
Santorini Greek Kitchen is located in a cute neighborhood in the downtown Indy area called Fountain Square. Fountain Square is known for it’s funky, quirky, and artsy atmosphere. It is chock-full of local eateries, art galleries, and other one-of-a-kind shops that are a must-see for anyone visiting the area. Santorini Greek Kitchen fits right in with this dynamic neighborhood.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by this delicious flaming dish: Saganaki (flaming, melty, delicious cheese!)
We then chatted and enjoyed each other’s company while we looked over the menu. The menu is full of many options including meat entrees, vegetarian, seafood, and a children’s menu. At first glance, it is easy to feel overwhelmed as most of the dishes have Greek names. I have learned to not let this intimidate me. The wait staff is friendly and always willing to answer questions
Another tip I have for dining at Santorini’s is to save room for the main course!! It is easy to fill up with pita, hummus, flaming cheese, and Greek salad before your meal even arrives but the cooks at Santorini are VERY generous with their portions.
I ended up ordering the Vegetable Combination which was a plate full of Briam (baked eggplant, tomato, zucchini, onion, green peppers, and garlic in a spicy tomato sauce), fried eggplant, spanokopita (spinach and feta encased in phyllo dough), tiropita (blended feta, layers of phyllo), and tomato balls with sides of green beans, rice, and potatoes…LOTS OF FOOD!
Brian ended up ordering the Moussaka, which is a traditional Greek dish of sliced eggplant, potatoes, and beef topped with bechamel and tomato sauce. His dish also came with sides of green beans, potatoes, and rice.
We enjoyed the leftovers last night for dinner, and thoroughly enjoyed round two of Santorini’s.
