66: Shrimp Corfu from Romeo's Euro Café
When the server at Romeo's Euro Café, the Mediterranean-inspired food and wine restaurant in Gilbert, starts your dinner service by saying that chef Romeo Taus does not take requests to substitute, add, or subtract ingredients from his dishes (their flavor profiles already meticulously set by Romeo), don't take it as an insult, take it as the chef doin' you a favor.
Then, order up the shrimp Corfu and let Romeo work his magic.
Romeo's shrimp Corfu, a nod to one of the largest Ionian islands off the west coast of mainland Greece, features shrimp, asparagus, scallions, red peppers, tomatoes, and capers sautéed in olive oil, white wine, garlic, and herbs, with a topping of feta cheese crumbles.
Crunchy, fresh vegetables meet light, tasty shrimp in this delicious dish with a delicate yet decidedly complex array of seasonings and a crumbled topping of feta cheese. And since the portion sizes at Romeo's guarantee leftovers, chances are you'll get to enjoy it all over again the next day.
