Moussakà

We have through this Friday, 9/25 to check out Restaurant Week - Expat was kind enough to send this photo and story on his dining out experience:

Just like last year, San Diego Restaurant Week has been extended to Restaurant Fortnight, so slackers who haven't yet taken advantage have another week to get out there onto those mean streets.


Our Friday posse went for Apollonia, which was well reviewed in the Reader a week ago. We were attracted by the presence of taramasalata on the menu and lamb in the moussakà (both features ridiculously rare here in SD). It was worth the schlep to the Costa Verde mall -- a 4-course blow-out for a mere 20 bucks. We all chose the moussakà and it was pretty good although lacking the cinnamon and cilantro that I use in my recipe. The starters were all very good.

My favs from there are the swordfish sandwich, falafel, and saganaki (the flaming cheese). Thanks Expat!

Looks tasty. I always eat moussaka in Greece. But I have yet to try it somewhere else.
