Fish "meze" appetizers especially the fried fish or squid are among the most popular during the summer months anywhere in Greece. Always accompanied with a glass of ouzo mostly. But beer or wine are also good.
Because these fish are tiny and crispy, kids don't see them as fish:) and love them as they would potato chips. Of course without the ouzo:)
KALI OREXI! ENJOY!
