Milos gives authentic Greek dining experience

ANY chef worth his salt will tell you that good food is about fresh ingredients and uncomplicated flavors.

If any nation's cuisine epitomizes these two ideals, it must be the clean and healthy taste of Greek food.

With Greece's unique position, both historically and geographically, it draws in influences from the past and spanning the Mediterranean from France to the Middle East, emerging with a strong distinctive style of its own which has changed little over the years.

Typical Greek food is simple, colorful and packed with robust flavors. The Greek Taverna O. Milos Restaurant may be a perfect choice for people in Shanghai to try authentic Greek food. With branches on Fangdian Road and Hongmei Road, the Greek Taverna O. Milos will definitely satisfy your taste for the Aegean Sea.

Since Greece is a coastal nation, seafood shows up on dinner tables very frequently. It's healthy, fresh and delicious. In Greek Taverna O. Milos, the seafood is served as one of the specialties, especially the grilled sea fish. Flatfish must be purchased daily to ensure freshness. When it's done, it has a delicate and tender taste. You can also add a little lemon juice and special-made sauce to get a different experience for your tongue.

Moussaka is another signature dish at the restaurant. Actually, it's also one of the most famous Greek dishes in the world. It features layers of eggplant, potato and ground meat topped with b??chamel sauce. To keep the authentic flavor, the restaurant's dairy products are supplied directly from the boss' farm in Greece, and all the olive oil is sourced from Greece.

Besides the food, the decor and menu also exude that simple style the restaurant wants diners to experience. You'll feel almost as if you are visiting a Greek family while sitting in the blue white villa that it themed on the sea. You also don't need to worry about being confused by strange foods - the menu is very detailed and all ingredients are listed.

All waiters and waitresses speak English so there will be no problem making yourself understood here. In addition, the prices are quite reasonable. Usually 100 yuan (US$14.95) makes for a very good dinner for one person.
