when we had a friend in town, we decided to hit up a bucktown / wicker park classic since 2009 : taxim right on milwaukee ave. at the six corners.

ever heard of it? well ... "taxim features regional greek cuisine & wine from the mountains, islands, cities & villages of greater greece." i'm literally always down for greek food.

as the resident vegan in the group (per usual), i over ordered apps & sides for everyone.. here's what we had ...

revithia kas. frossos & politiki melitzanosalata :  basically hummus & baba ghannoush. 
what's not to like?
aginares me koukia : artichokes, fingerling potatoes, fava beans, baby carrots & dill.
i wanted more artichokes. but good! 
olives & pickles : because, duh.
piperies tiganites : basically, greek shishitos. hello, yummy! 
marathopita kritis :  cretan pastry filled with fresh fennel, spring onions & sesame. wow. not in a good way. i'm sure someone out there likes this ... but it tasted like grass …
