I confess I’m a picky eater, especially with Greek food. I believe it’s because I’ve had some of the best Greek food. So I’m skeptical when I go to a restaurant I haven’t been before. As I opened the door, I noticed that Christaskis smelled wonderful.
My order: Hummus with Pita, Greek Salad and Falafel plate. Oh my gosh, yummy fresh pita bread with hummus and olives are to die for! The Greek Salad is prepared old world style with house dressing. And the Falafel balls were excellent served with fresh green beans and rice.
My guest’s order: Greek Salad and the daily special Stuff Peppers. We shared my hummus because he isn’t a Greek food fan but he ended up eating half (yes, it was that good). He went on and on about the stuffed peppers. He was so pleased that he went with the host’s suggestions.
