Greek Eating

We stumbled upon Desfina a couple of years ago. We were looking for a Greek restaurant that served Scordalia and Saganaki. Those are two of our favorite Greek dishes and we fell in love with them back in Miami. We went to Desfina recently and enjoyed another Greek dinner. The restaurant is small and has a neighborhood feel. The food is whipped out quickly and it's all full of flavor.

We ordered the Scordalia and enjoyed it fully. Scordalia is pureed potato loaded with garlic. This is the type of dish you don't eat when you plan on talking to others. I think there is more garlic in this dish than there is potato.
The Saganaki was amazing, as usual. It's a wedge of Greek cheese, fried, and then flambeed with Greek liquor. The cheese is salty and scented with the lemon and alcohol flavors of the liquor.
We both ordered Gyros. There's nothing better than a gyro stuffed with feta cheese and Tzatziki. The gyro was made with a roasted pork that was also salty, tender, and falls-apart-in-your-mouth good.
Desfina is located on 202 Third Street in Cambridge. Their menu is full of traditional Greek dishes and the price cannot be beat.
