Sampling another nation’s fare is a tastier way to experience a different culture than licking a globe or swallowing foreign currency. Expand your culinary horizons with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Greek fare at PapaSpiros Greek Taverna in Oak Park.
Featured on the ABC 7 Chicago news segment The Hungry Hound for its healthy dishes, PapaSpiros Greek Taverna uses a bevy of chefs to craft homemade Greek cuisine and their own take on traditional dishes. Diners fuel dance-horror movie marathons with hearty lunch entrees including chicken souvlaki ($7.95) and barbecue lamb sandwiches ($8.95). Come dinner, mousaka ($14.95), bakaliaros—pan-fried codfish served with scordalia and oven-roasted potatoes ($15.95)—and other well-known favorites populate the expansive menu. Guests can top off a meal and satisfy molar-dwelling sucrose czars with desserts such as baklava and rice pudding.
