"Great Greek" Old School Food
Being from NYC I had found it hard to find good Greek food, I mean really good Greek food. There's a chain or two around that has Greek, but it's like Domino's when you're looking for good pizza. But in Sherman Oaks, on Ventura Blvd, "The Great Greek" restaurant is the real thing.
Their Stuffed Grape Leaves "Dolmathes" and Spinach Cheese Pie "Spanakopita" are my favorites only second to "The Blue Mediterranean" salad. It has chunks of chicken breast sliced avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, red onions capers and feta cheese, over greens all for only about $10 at lunch. I always order too much so I can bring it home and enjoy it for another meal.
Another taste sensation is their 'Tzatziki' with their warm pita bread for an appetizer is a mouthwatering experience waiting to happen.
if you like greek food AND a wonderful atmosphere, check out "papadakis taverna" in san pedro. have been going for over 25 years, went again last friday night. better greek food than i have been able to find - even in athens and corfu! the admiral of the greek fleet proclaimed papadakis the BEST greek taverna in the WORLD!!! (they can show you the letter.)
