Over the last four years, there are two things that have become a large part of my daily life, Ville Saint-Laurent and Greek food. They are two things that I didn’t seek out, but they entered my life and became important parts of it. When you combine both of them, you get a visit to Elounda.

One of the most highly contested areas in Montreal cuisine is that of Greek food. There are literally dozens of worthy contenders to the title of who makes Greek food worth trying. While we all have our trusted favorites, once in a while. there comes new players that we must stop to take notice. One of the latest players on the scene is a place in the Plateau area of Montreal called Estia.

Colleague outings aren’t things that I’m too interested in. It seems to me that they revolve around things that I’m not too fond of. It takes a lot of unique factors to make me want to come. This was the second outing that didn’t quite interest me at first. Mind you, I’m getting pretty fond of having Greek food, but on this particular Friday evening, it wasn’t quite enough to draw me in. If you’re wondering why I came out, let me set the scene for you.

Over the last year, I’ve been doing my best to expand my net as far as different types of cuisine are concerned. I’ve enjoyed all of my recent Greek restaurant visits and look forward to more in the future. Last September, I was attending a retirement party at Restaurant Ellada. On that night, I was introduced to a dessert known as loukoumades. It was around that same exact time where I heard the name Mr. Puffs for the first time.

It’s been a fully charged Greek cuisine week for me. When I heard that our colleagues at school were planning a retirement party at this restaurant, I had mixed feelings. For one, my fellow food fanatic teacher cohort, who is Greek by the way, did not have rave reviews for the food. I also wasn’t going to pull out the full food blogger Mr. Lew hat for this evening, but I was convinced otherwise by my cohort. He was hoping that I would back up his previous statements. The rest of the personnel at school all felt that the food was quite good. I think I was going to make it my goal to see the truth since I obviously eat a lot.
