Fried Squid @ Simply Greek, Oakland

We grabbed a quick and inexpensive bite at Simply Greek on Piedmont Ave. a couple weeks ago. My pastitsio was good – the macaroni wasn’t mushy and it was pretty meaty (made with beef and not lamb) with nice cinnamon-y undertone. His gyro was decent. The Greek salad and fries we shared were fair.

What was notable was the fried calamari, a new item here. A small plate heaped with dusted and fried rings and tentacles is less than three bucks. A little on the greasy side, but otherwise hitting the right tender-chewy texture and fresh sweetness. The seasonings were very plain, but just add some salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon, then you really have something.
