Going on a first date with a girl i met at work,
She told me that she wants to try greek food and ive never had it myself.
What do i need to know about it?
What to order for starters?
For main?
What if anything do i need to avoid?
I don't want to look like a tool.

Poor decision OP. Good luck too you. Also greek food is alright. Get moussaka or a gyro I guess.

Greek food is pretty good imo, but for a first date its probably the worst food to get. your breath will be hot af when you go for that goodnight kiss.

>> No.11966766

If you know whether you like olives or not you should be fine just reading the menu. I don't think there's likely to be anything that's a trap. Expect a lot of flavour so if you have a wonderbread and tendies only palate you might find everything offensive. If you want to avoid that kind of thing you can probably get a pretty simple fish dish but you should know how to tackle a whole one. If you get dolmades (grape leaves stuffed with rice and onion and herbs) yes you eat the whole thing leaf wrapper included.

Don't feel obligated to get meat, there's a ton of great greek vego food.

Calamari is a safe appetizer, and gyros are a safe main. I don't think there's a way to "look like a tool" trying food at a restaurant, but correct me if I'm wrong.

This >>11967736, OP. You're not gonna look like a tool unless you go for tendies and fries (although Greeks absolutely DO get fries when they go to their favourite taverna).

Things to note:

>tzatziki is a must with some nice pita for a starter
>anything that is fried zucchini is amazing (kolokythokeftedes or tiganita kolokythakia), especially with skordalia (mashed potato and garlic)
>skordalia goes amazingly with fried fish for a main
>however, the fish and calamari will most likely be frozen unless you're at a coastal region, so ask
>moussaka is always a classic (although it is not a traditional Greek dish)
>if you wanna go vegetarian (always a safe option), ask the server what "ladera" they have (dishes where olive oil is pretty much the main star, often without any meat)
>as >>11966766 says, please do not open up the dolmades
>ouzo is pretty good unlike what >>11966778 says, you can dilute it with water as is very common in Greece
>if the Greek salad has any lettuce, get out

it's pretty basic man you don't need to know much about it. can't go wrong with some lamb
if they have saganaki cheese as an entree thats worth a try
