All about trying new places this trip. Aunt was feeling Greek so we decided to try Calypso’s Taverna.
We came on a Saturday evening around 7:00pm and there was maybe a handful of tables. So dead (thanks again Stampede). They have a TV and were playing Wheel of Fortune. Haven’t seen that show in years.
Menu is pretty typical Greek: appetizers, soups/salads, dips, entrees and pastas (random). Would have liked to try their stuffed calamari! All the entrees come with rice, soup or salad, roast potatoes (nice acidity but salty) and vegetables (seems like they were frozen; bland).

Aunt chose this one. Other alternative was Caesar.
This was their soup of the day. Hearty.
Egg lemon chicken soup. Never had this before but it was homey! Like the chicken and rice that’s thrown into this soup.
Salmon special ($26.99)
One of their specials of the night. Had a bite; good but not the greatest. A tad overcooked.
Pork baby back ribs special ($26.99)
Massive platter of ribs! Fall off the bone, tender but still meaty.
This is their speciality. The lamb shank was slow roasted perfectly. Loads of meat, not gamey and tender.
Spanakopita dinner ($17.95)
Flaky and very buttery.
2x Ek ten ($7.00)
Greek style bread pudding. Almonds, cinnamon, custard and whipped cream. This was right up my alley; love light, custard desserts. Just get one to share, it’s a big piece.
A little pricey but that’s always the case when you go for Greek.
