Vaso’s Greek in Old Town Alexandria

Ziv | Feb 3, 202107:54 AM    

I have always enjoyed this cafe! In the summer they have a colorful arbor of flowers over the outdoor dining area which is cool. Yesterday was an indoor visit and they have good practices on separation and plenty of hand sanitizer available.
I was just grabbing a light bite so I had a cup of Avgolemono soup and the Appetizer Sampler. The soup was good but not great, chicken, egg, rice and lemon. The sampler is really nice, olives, anchovies, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, dolmades, peppers, pepperoncini, feta spread, hummus, meatballs and pita bread. All good, except for the anchovies. LOL!
I had the lamb shank last year pre-COVID and it was outstanding! The moussaka was pretty good but not great.
The fact that they kept the large pig sculpture on the roof (it used to be a BBQ joint) makes the place seem kind of festive!

Avgolemono soup and Appetizer Sampler.

Really good!
