The Mezes (Appetizers)
The food they serve comes from thousands of years of arduous preparation aimed to understand natural food preservation. Grape leaves, for example, used to be picked in the middle of the season, when the pH-level was suited for the taste of the filling content (first press olive and lemon mix). Back then, the leaves would be individually cleaned and stacked in salt water to preserve them. Nowadays, the tradition continues with each fresh leaf being wrapped with the home-made mix that savors the taste and reminds their guest of how the food and the earth that grows it are still naturally connected.
From phyllo-dough based pastries (baklava and lady fingers) to imported Italian Tiramisou or a sip of Part wine dessert, the mediterranean meal is only complete once the sweet tooth craving has been satisfied.
