Alefkandra Taverna – Mykonos, Greece

another seafood post.. sort of.. dinner in Mykonos…

mykonos….THE ISLAND OF GREECE…known for its night life.. but for me, it’s the island where Wang Lee Hom (王力宏), the most talented singer, songwriter, composer and producer, wrote his signature song “Wei Yi (唯一) between 5 and 6 a.m. on Mykonos Island, Greece, August 17, 2001. According to Lee Hom, It was those same Greek stars and night sky, that inspired countless classic stories of Gods with human character flaws, that gave me loneliness on the morning of August 17. I quietly crawled out of bed so as not to wake my sleeping brother and father, then exited the house and began to walk aimlessly in the cold, empty street. It was 5 o’clock a.m. and I watched my moonlight shadow jot a few lines in his palm pilot, the song thus began.

(omg.. i am such a lee hom fan girl) anyways… onto the food part!

we walked to the part of Mykonos called “little venice”.. it earned its nickname cause the houses are built right by the water…

the restaurant we chose, Alefkandra, is right by the Aegean sea and under the famous windmills..

it’s the perfect location for dinner because you can watch the magical sunset… it’s really breathtaking…. everyone stops eating and just looks at the sun setting over the horizon… anyways..

we all had a greek salad.. but i’m not a avid cheese fan, so i didn’t like the chunk of feta..

seafood spaghetti….  fresh seafood…i didn’t like the sauce cause it was a bit too spicy… my mom quite liked it cause compared with the seafood spaghetti we had in Nice, which used rather unfresh seafood, this seafood didn’t have the seafood-y taste..

carbonara….my dad’s not a food adventurer… so most of the time he sticks with carbonara… (i had a bite) it was very creamy and had a generous amount of bacon..good choice..

my brother is also not very adventurous…. and he usually sticks with spaghetti bolognese .. from the looks of it.. it doesn’t look the your regular bolongnese..  i didn’t try it.. but my brother didn’t complain.. so i guess it was ok..

Alefkandra is a good place to have dinner in mykonos.. great location… passable food.. and great price (for mykonos)…
