Greek food and large group gatherings have become a vital part of my food adventures in Montreal. Ever since I’ve been to my first real Greek restaurant in September of 2011, I’ve been looking forward to every and each opportunity I could get. Most of those Greek outings, even if they were organized by me, came from the head of someone else. This would be the first time that I would be the one to choose the Greek restaurant. The pressure was going to be on my head.

2011 has been a big year for me to try and get to like Greek food. Over the course of this calendar year, I got a know a Greek colleague who basically has been guiding me through Montreal’s Greek cuisine. But, I need to say that I’m not the only one who wants to expand their Greek horizons. Shortly after my post on Ellada at the end of September, a conversation on Twitter gave me quite the idea.

This was the second time I’ve been to this restaurant during the last school year. The first time I was there, I forgot to take pictures, so this time, I was ready for action. The servers in this establishment are very hardworking and cordial. For what is was worth, the value for the lunch menu was good, as the portions were really huge.
Doner Gyros Small Plate
Tried: April 26, 2011
This dish contains a Greek salad, potatoes, rice, and beef.
This was the dish that introduced me to this restaurant. I had this the first time I was here and I was going to have it again. The portions are huge and I had trouble finishing it. Being the competitor I am, I always finish, and that’s what I did. The potatoes are nothing out of this world, as is the rice. The highlights of the meal are the beef and salad. I usually save the best parts for last. The last two things on the plate were the beef and the feta cheese.
