rainy fish stew

I’m a creature of habit. Luckily, I have friends who are more adventurous. On a overcast morning we ventured away from Fira to the other side of the island. Don’t let me fool you, I was less than happy about this. I blame it on hunger. We ended up at a restaurant situated on a deck that overlooked the Caledera. It started raining a bit while we were at the restaurant and so the raindrops were falling through the wooden slats of the makeshift roof. There didn’t appear to be an inside area of the tavern so we were stuck outside.

The food made up for the rain though. We shared tzatziki to start which was solid. I found most of the tzatziki in Greece to be heavy on the garlic which I’m a fan of. I had fish stew for lunch and it hit the spot with the light rain and chill air. My best guess was that it tomato-based, with potatoes, garlic, parsley, and a white fish.
