A few weeks ago I had lunch at Kos Greek Ouzeri with good friend Alfred and met Chef Mats Loo. It was such a great foodie experience that spreading the word about their authentic Greek cuisine became quite a personal mission. So went back with foodie friends for them to experience authentic Greek cuisine as well. I have a post about my initial visit (link here: Kos Greek Ouzeri: Authentic Greek Cuisine in the heart of Quezon City but this post is more extensive (read: more ‘drool-worthy’ dishes so caveat, do not read with an empty stomach hehe!)
