Restaurant Review

Last night we had dinner at a restaurant called Jake & Telly's in Old Town Colorado Springs. We weren't sure what to expect. We had seen people eating on the deck, and a co-worker had mentioned in passing that the food was good, but that was all. As we entered the restaurant we realised that it was Greek cuisine. Not my usual go to style of food but meh, we'll try it. The pita starter was delicious, fresh and yummy! Hummus is sometimes a risky food for me as I do not usually like it. I stepped out of my comfort zone and asked to try a little.

It was fantastic! Garlic-y and fresh tasting, even Luke liked it! (and he swore he didn't like hummus!)
For dinner I ordered Shrimp Makaronada. Yum Yum yum! I had already dug in and finished half before I thought to take a picture!

Luke got one of the specials, Braised Pork loin.

 and well...this is how much he liked it. This had a very good, home style stew type flavor.

According to the menu introduction the restaurant is specialised in wine pairings with the food, though we chose to splurge a bit on food and forgo wine. While it is not a "cheap eat," we were both able to eat for under $40 (not including a large tip for our fantastic service and food recommendations from Crystal and the staff).  I definitely recommend it!

We finished our night with two Netflix movies! Largely satisfying.
