Yperokeaneio @ Piraeus

One evening of July weekday, we stopped at Yperokeaneio about which I have heard good words from some.

From outside, it does not look anything special. Rather shabby, I must say. But It is attracting many people, even more than the nearby fish taverna Ilias.

The inside seating area is very small and most of the people prefer to seat outside, even though inside there was air-condition.

The menu contains many unusual items and quite different from standard menu of psarotaverna.

This is black eye beans salad with marinated fish. Nice.

Fried sardines with pickled onions. Well done.

Fried potatoes. All right. Keep on going.

Grilled cuttlefish with red pepper sauce. Interesting (but the smaller cuttlefish was a bit burnt)

At the end we had a free plate of watermelon.

Together with a bottle of beer, the bill came to 34 Euro. It is not cheap for a meal at a roadside taverna, but reasonable for this sort of creative cuisine.

We liked the food very much, but the fact that it was so busy (it was just a weekday evening and there was only a couple of empty table) possibly puts us off. We will see.
