We were on Fraser looking for a suitable happy hour pitstop. Their sandwich board outside had us pausing with $3 high balls, $4 tap beers, and either house red or white at $5. And we quickly found ourselves walking into “Nammos Estiatorio” to take advantage.
The open space was divided by upholstered booths. A pretty simple setting with black framed photos, painted portraits, and Grecian artifacts. We grabbed a booth by the door and quickly ordered before the hour would no longer be so “happy”.
We enjoyed two glasses of wine along with two appetizers to share.
$10 for a regular serving of “kalamari”. But here the crispy battered and fried squid pieces were served with a beet dip instead of the typical tzatziki cream. We were skeptical of the pairing, but quick to try and then go back for second dips. It was chunky and easy to spread, offering the heavy fry a nice refreshing tang.
For $6 we also had the “zucchini chips”. Although it was a vegetable, we found ourselves now with a little too much deep fry and oil in our dishes, and nothing light to cleanse the palette with in between. The chips were crisp, a little plain as is, but well coupled with the tzatziki, that made its appearance here.
Would I come back? – Yes.
Would I line up for it? – No.
Would I recommend it? – Yes.
Would I suggest this to someone visiting from out of town? – No.
Based on the quality of the little taste here, I would definitely like to come back to the restaurant to try a full meal. So for now, it all seems positive. Don’t deny your cravings.
