Flaming Cheese in Detroit: Lunch at Greektown

We had a business meeting today for lunch and we went down to downtown Detroit to eat at the famous Greektown restaurant Pegasus. We ordered Saganaki, which is FLAMING cheese!

After being fried, the saganaki cheese is flambéed at the table (sometimes with a shout of "opa!"), and the flames then usually extinguished with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. This is called "flaming saganaki".

I thought the grapeleaves overhead would catch on fire!

Howdy again sir ironshield! I never saw anything like that and never heard of flaming cheese! lol..how was it?

It was delicious! I haven't figured exactly what kind of cheese it is, but I think it's made from sheep's milk. It was gooey good with the home-made bread. It's important to wait for the fire to run out and the cheese to cool down, otherwise it'll burn your mouth.

oh that's so interesting! I think you guys should make some and do a video of it, lol..you might want to do the flaming part outside though!
