GreekFest Report--Go!!

Went to Greekfest on Friday Night and enjoyed it immensely. The tiropitas (cheese-filled filo dough pastries) had a light lemony-nutmegy flavor and the generous moussaka servings more than satisfied. The lines weren't too long and the serving system was exceedingly smooth for this type of event (in my experience) so things moved quickly. I also liked the loukomathes, fried dough balls drizzled with honey. Hard to go wrong there.

There were also greek beer stands, greek coffee, other desserts, a grilled lamb plate stand and a gyro stand. Though Fri night admission was free, I'd pay the $3 to go tonight (Sat) or Sun. Plus, there's a dollar off coupon on the website, www.lagreekfest.com.

I have pictures of the food we ate here:

    I went today. It's was fun and the food was great. I loved the loukomathes (wait until they make a fresh batch). Anyway, despite the great food (the roasted chicken was amazing), I still snuck across the street to Papa Christos. I couldn't help it.

    If you can, go tomorrow!

    One huge caveat, though, do not approach the festival from any direction other than northbound on Normandie. There is no other way to get to the parking, and having to go around will be a huge pain!

      I wish I had known about this, I would have loved it plus I was in the area.

        Don't know if you're still in the area, but it's going on thru Sunday--should have been more clear. I think Sunday's hours are 11 am?-10 pm. You should check the website though to be sure: www.lagreekfest.com

          Thanks, no, you were clear. It's just that I was probably like a few blocks down that night and I wished I had gone, like I was racking my brain on what to do. I also bookmarked the site so I think I'll go next year. Eat some spanakopita for me if you go again!
