4660 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Advice: Take a long a friend or two and share a variety of dishes.
For over 38 years the family has been cooking fine Greek cuisine at this locale, known for their pizza which I have enjoyed previously, this visit was to eat Greek. I brought along a couple of friends Jonathan and Emmy and we embarked on a tasting and sharing adventure.
We started off the meal with the large Dip Platter ($13.50) pita, and a selection of dips the homous, spicy feta, garlic eggplant and tzatziki; followed by a wonderful Greek Salad ($10) fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, onions, and feta; followed by the delicious Kalamari ($10) deep fried and served with tzatziki.
Next was the outstanding Spanakopita ($8) Spinach, feta, egg and dill wrapped in filo & baked; this was followed by another outstanding dish, the Saganaki ($10) Pan fried mountain sheep cheese done with a touch of ouzo. This was followed the delicious Mousaka ($16) layered ground beef, meliziano, and béchamel sauce, along with a plate of roasted potatoes. The next dish was the tender Lamb Kleftiko ($19) casserole along with the Chicken Thessaloniki ($19) tender chicken breast topped with steamed spinach, roasted vegetable sauce, feta and mozzarella.
We finished off our meal sharing a dessert platter with my favourite Eckmek and Bougatsa, both were delicious and were the perfect ending to our Greek night.
