Santorini is a familiar face on the Best Of list, having been honored many times before this. But that’s because Santorini is the real Greek deal, and our readers know authentic international food when they taste it. For over a decade now, the Sawis have been serving lovingly-prepared Greek dishes. One if their most popular is the Lamb Lovers, which features lamb prepared three ways for the carnivore at the table. Of course, you can get lighter fare like the mixed grill entree or something vegetarian. But why mess with that when you could eat flaming cheese and spiced meat on a stick?
