I'm so glad you asked this. I was craving spanikopita like no other yesterday. I've passed by Afroditi countless times, but now I'll know I have to stop in.
I was wondering, are there any greek restaurants that have decent spanikopita? My boyfriend and I want to try some a good place where I can get some good veggie options outside rice/potatoes/salad.
i love afroditi! their cheesecake and tiramisu are delicious. i'll have to admit that i never tried their spanakopita, only their tiropita... i loved it as a kid, but lately i've been getting my spinach and feta fix across the street from (and to the right of) afroditi at the turkish pastry shop called efes. i think the turkish version is called borek, but it's very similar, if not the same as, spanakopita. they also have a spicy chicken version that is very good.

I haven't been to Efes. What other Turkish specialities do they have?
Oh, I'm so looking forward to getting my bicycle out - I can be there in ten minutes by bicycle - either public transport or walking is much longer.
While in Parc Ex, also up to Liège for Armenian specialities!
I like the baked goods at Afroditi, the prettiest Greek bakery in Parc-Extension. They have two kinds of spanakopita - the spanakopita phyllo and the spanakopita zimi - that would be the one in more a bread-dough type casing, I believe.

Yes, I love them too. In an old Greek cookbook I have (put out by a Church group) they also have a leek and feta pastry.
