Bakkhus Taverna Greek Restaurant & Bar, 605 6th St, Kemah 77565.

I was going to bundle this lunch and the Bailey's dinner for a review in the Lagniappe. But with the closing of the former, this was somewhat of an orphan. Really too small for print but just the right size for the blog. This establishment in Kemah features great food and atmosphere.

Below is Keftethes. Handmade beef meatballs topped with avgolomento (lemon sauce). Very tender and redolent of oregano, the sauce added a rich (it has eggs in it) citrus kick that made this the perfect lead into the next dish
That dish was Greek Bar Trash. It was an amalgamation of Octopus, Kalamari, Shrimp, and Scallops all grilled and brushed with seasoned olive oil then finished with fresh lemon.
Served with fresh toasted bread. This was excellent and its size make it perfect for a one person meal or appetizer for four or more. Except the octopus body the tail on shrimp, squid bodies & tentacles, scallops and octopus tentacle were tender. All were infused the with olive oil, lemon and oregano grilling sauce. Oopah
I ended up with Galaktoboureko. Homemade Greek custard baked in a flaky crust then drizzled
with honey syrup and dusted with powdered sugar. What I got was the custard in a crepe. Still very sweet and good
Being on the east side of Houston the trip here is less than two hours. It seems to be a fun place with lots of shopping in the town. Just make sure you eat here. They have an extensive menu here at Bakkhus Taverna
