Pine Avenue is one of those streets on the island of Montreal that isn’t that long, but still lives long in the hearts of the citizens of this island. The street is home to many hospitals, school, and iconic businesses. One of those businesses is a pizza place affectionately known as Mamma’s.

My visit to Le Jardin de Panos is the third in the series of outings as part of the Fat Squirrel Society (inside joke). The first visit was in October for Korean BBQ and the second was in the midst of Chinatown. So, we took a little bit of a curve by going to see what other Greek restaurants there were to explore in Montreal. I honestly thought that I reached the plateau of Greek cuisine with my other visits, so I was hoping to expand to that list.

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.

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.
