hellenic republic, 434 lygon st, brunswick east, melbourne

the above prawns (to me) were the stand out dish!  incredibly moorish!
 a friend from sydney visited melbourne recently & high on her 'to do' list was to have dinner at hellenic republic...she has their book & cooks from it often.  i happily joined in with 2 other friends & the night was plentiful with food & wine, many laughs, loud & late (we were the last to leave).

we ordered the trapezi menu $58 per person...everything was delicious...the menu consisted of mezethakia...small hellenic tastes, thalassina, fish from the grill, cypriot salad of grains, pulses & nuts, kreata – meat of the day, patates, lahansalata, tzatziki and...finally epithorpio - sweet: kataifi pastry cherries, custard, mastic ice cream.

the absolute stand out to me was garithes simiakes, whole clarence river school prawns deep fried w attiki honey dressing...we ate them whole, crunchy, salty & sweet dipped in the honey dressing...i am still thinking about them!

I have not been to a cool restaurant recently that did not have deep fried school prawns on their menu, whether it's Japanese, mod Oz, Greek! Love your music too! Beautiful post.
