Barely a month ago, I received at least three text messages from random friends and relatives telling me the exact same thing : "hey, there's a new restaurant called Greeka Kouzina. It's along P. Guevarra. What's good there?"
The first message made me sat up from my lazy-Sunday-in-bed-while-watching-The-Buzz-position. Just like a news reporter who had just received a juicy scoop, I made a mental note and later on (realizing that my memory is terrible) jotted down the name of the new restaurant in my planner. I got two more messages right after that and I knew I have to give this interesting restaurant a try ASAP!
The menu was simple and straight-forward. We were lucky to have the owner giving us her recommended dishes and before we knew it, we ended up ordering at least one dish per page!
We were so full after consuming our orders! Well, we tried to finish them all but we gave up after eating half of the roast lamb dish. It was just way too much for us. We then decided to just have it wrapped for our friends to take home for their next meal.
What made our dinner more fun was the fact that we were able to catch up with our long-time friends. It's funny that we live just a few streets away from one another but it took us this long to meet up and bond again. I hope this will be the start of a series of dinners hopefully with Paul and my friend's fiance joining us too!
I'm so happy that there's finally a really good Greek restaurant in the neighborhood. The restaurant has a second floor making it spacious enough to host small family gatherings or reunions. The only challenge is their parking. They actually have a private parking lot but you'll have to walk at least a block from the restaurant to get there. Well, we can all see the effort, nonetheless.
I can't wait to take my friends and family back here! Till next time, Greeka Kouzina. ♥
