The saganaki at Athena Express is brought to the table flaming.

This week, Counter Culture hits two spots in Bay Ridge. The first is a small new Greek cafe concentrating on the meaty cuisine of the mainland, while the second is a venerable Palestinean take-out spot turned elegant restaurant. Plenty of dishes to recommend at each place.

The wonderful loukaniko--a Cypriot pork sausage--is grilled and served with Greek fries, which means lots of feta and dried oregano.

The moussaka is as good as it gets, with creamy bechamel atop ground meat, sided with plenty of lemon-roasted potatoes.

Next: Tanoreen
