Free Family Entertainment And Fantastic Food At Greek Fest
Niko Niko's is a very popular Greek restaurant in Houston that is located on Montrose Blvd. It's been rated as one of the best restaurants in Houston for many years, and still is. I discovered Niko Niko's by accident. I was in the area looking to stop by a store called The Magick Cauldron and Niko Niko's was right next door. I didn't drop by the restaurant until months later after I had visited a Greek festival and was craving gyros.
These warm triangle shaped pastries filled with spinach, onion seasoning and spices were yummy. The spices were not over powering and the dough was soft and puffy. Not at all like the flaky fillo dough of Spanakopita, but just as tasty.
Hearty dishes are the order of the day, and shared platters on the table is a big trend right now. successful winter dishes include: roast lamb and chicken platters with gourmet potatoes, cooking lamb shanks, and beef and garlic sausages.
An Indian lamb curry normally involves a spice blend with a soup like consistency. It is a wonderful concoction of chickpea flour, clarified butter (ghee), yogurt and spices. The interesting thing about curry is that it has lots of versions depending on the region where it is cooked and prepared. For instance, a curry dish cooked in Tamil will present a mixture of vegetables, dried spices and meat or fish. A Malay will prepare curry that has coconut milk and bay leaves. Curry has evolved throughout the years and special recipes have been passed on in Indian families for the next generation to enjoy.
Make a large batch of your favorite Bechamel Sauce Recipe. I often do triple the usual quantity. Again, decant into freezer containers and mark. You now have the basis for a whole range of dishes, from your best baked macaroni cheese recipe to baked fish in a sauce. You can add simple ingredients to make a pasta sauce or you could add the Bechamel sauce to a Lasagna or Moussaka. But the key thing is, that part of the work has already been done, thereby making it completely viable to have a nutritious meal on the table in a relatively quick time.
It would be best to utilize genuine spices instead of going for easy to prepare, commercially available curry powder or paste. This way you will end up cooking a curry dish that curried lamb is especially flavorful and aromatic.
The Columbia Ice Fields are a series of glaciers, and extremely interesting! In the glaciers simple lamb curry covered where the Ice Centre a hotel and restaurant is now! Markers show the retreat of the melting glacier to where we saw it today. Because glaciers are very dangerous and people have been injured, visitors are only permitted to walk on the glacier with a trained guide. The glacier is 150 square miles with a depth of 1,148 feet. The walk to the boundary is very steep, and the weather can be harsh, so be prepared! It is exciting to stand at the edge of a glacier! Allow at least an hour! We were cold and damp, so tea and two bowls of soup at the Centre were in order!
Long story short, try The Whip Tavern as soon as possible. Just be careful coming home after a few pints. The roads are very windy, and you don't need to get up-close-and-personal with the livestock to have an entertaining evening!
