Finding greek cheese in Scarborough

I'll be in Scarborough in a few weeks. Looking for a place where I could find some greek cheese to make Saganaki for a greek dinner we will be hosting. Impossible to find here at home in Timmins, ON. Will I find this at a regular grocery store or is there some deli where I could pick some up.

  1. Kostas Meats on the south side of Ellesmere just west of Warden, has quite a variety of items re greek cuisine.

      Including Greek cheeses. I don't recall seeing any sheep's feta though. Nary a sheep in the place IIRC.

        Kostas looks exactly like the kind of place I need. Thank you shpToronto

          Looks like Kostas is exactly what I was looking for.

            Thanks for the recommendation of Kosta's. Went today and it was exactly what I was looking for. Great meat counter and great selection of greek cheeses and other greek products.

              It's a good meat counter, but I find better quality and selection at Highland Farms of all places. Kostas is best for traditional Greek, but HF is better and more diverse as a general butcher.

          2. Kostas sells Feta cheese from a huge barrel. They wrap up the piece you want and give you a bag of the brine to store it in at home.

                Googs, have you tried the 1 kg. green can of sheep's feta from Bulgaria? It is $20 at Highland Farms? I bought it just for the label, ' passed by state veterinary'! And it was good.

                  Surprised that didn't grab my eye. Sheep, Bulgaria, and feta all on the same label. How can it not be good? Thanks for the tip. Zelnik anyone?

            1. Diana's Seafood also carries a good selection of Greek cheeses, oregano, frozen spanokopita etc.

                Diana's prices for those items are slightly higher than at Kosta's. Not wheel-the-car-around-we-have-to-make-another-stop higher. Just enough that if you're already at Kosta's, buy there.
