Yet another delayed post 🙂

Two weeks ago, during another great food adventure series, we visited tavern Sarakas in a small village called Kato Poros, Rethymno prefecture.

The food was really delicious as expectedin a classic Cretan tavern.  What was really suprising  was that the tavern walls was full of mantinades (short Cretan poems), some of them really amazing! We couldn’t resist but writing one mantinada ourselves in the walls!

And of course the tavern host (which we call Captain Sarakas) is a really great guy!

See for yourself:
