Octopus with pasta
The octopus is cut in large pieces and boiled in the casserole with laurel, onion, olive oil and spice, tomatoes, salt and pepper. As soon as the octopus is ready it is removed from the casserole and barley shaped pasta is added in the sauce to boil with the mixture. This way, the pasta takes the unique flavour of the octopus juice, boiled with all herbs, spices and tomato.

Fish is fried in the pan with water, some olive oil, salt and oregano. When the water is evaporated, lemon juice is added on top. The fish is served with the olive oil from the pan. A different version of the typical fried fish.

Lamb or goat meat with pistachio crust
The lamb or goat meat is marinated in olive oil, herbs and spices and baked for 2,5 hours in the oven. Butter, grated pistachios, broth from the roast, honey and breadcrumbs are well mixed together to prepare the crust paste. The meat is cut into portions and covered with the paste. Then it is baked for 10 more minutes until the crust is formed. If you find this traditional dish in a tavern or restaurant, just try it!
