Well, I found an apartment (with a cute little kitchen that will be the center of my food experimentation for at least the next six months), but I still have not been cooking. However, I took a nice little weekend road trip to Little Rock and got to FINALLY experience some real Greek food! Excuse the blurry photos, please. I commandeered my dad’s digital cam, and it isn’t known for its beautiful closeups of beautiful food.

Leo's Greek Castle
Leo’s Greek Castle is in West Little Rock and is a teeny tiny little building that’s, well, almost triangle-shaped. The dining room is also tiny – I think they had about five or six tables.

I’ve got no basis for comparison, so I’ll just tell you how yummy the food was. I’ve never eaten real Greek food before. The only hummus I’ve had is from Wal-Mart. Sad, huh?

This hummus, though… Oh man. Could taste the freshness of it. The fresh olive oil… It was creamy and delicious and perfect.

Falafel at Leo's Greek Castle
I’ve never had falafel before, though I love saying that word out loud, and I drive everybody crazy when I get on an “I want to try falafel, dammit!” kick. I finally had some. And it was good. It was good. That’s all I can say. Well, I can also say that the soft pita, cucumber salsa and creamy hummus also tasted good with the falafel. And I can also say that I’m drooling right now. Damn.

Flan at Leo's Greek Castle
I’m not one to pass up dessert. Here, flan. Flan! It was not remarkable, but it was enjoyable.

    I LOVE falafel. So much. In fact, that’s what I am making for dinner tonight!
