The last restaurant Kid visited while she was in Vancouver was Kisamos Greek Taverna in Steveston, Richmond. We were there for an early lunch, which allowed us to finish early, stroll around in Steveston, and finally stop by YVR for her to catch her flight back to California.
We ordered a couple appetizers to share, Spanakopita and Melitzanosalata.
The Spanakopita was a really good. Normally, the spanakopitas would be really oily from the flaky pastry wrap, but to my surprise, it wasn’t oily at all. The pastry wrap was thin and there were a lot of filling. The spinach and feta tasted super fresh. They spinach still held their shape, and wasn’t super mushed together with the cheese. It was probably the best spanakopita I’ve had.
Melitzanosalata was roasted eggplant, garlic with olive oil. First time having this, I didn’t know it was a dip, and it came with some warm pita breads. I liked this dip a lot the more I ate it. The you can taste the sweetness of the eggplant and the garlic from the roast. There was a hint of roasted red bell pepper too.
For my lunch I ordered my favorite Greek entreé, the Lamb Souvlaki. A lunch order of the lamb slouvlaki came with 1 lamb kabob, rice, Greek salad and potatoes. The lamb was so tasty. It was cooked perfectly and it was super super soft and tender. It’s got really nice charcoal flavor, which made the lamb even more amazing. The Greek salad on the sides were really fresh. The rice was a little bit too soft for my liking though.
Kid ordered the Beeftaki from the lunch special menu. It a wrap with Greek salad and 2 big patties of beef burgers. The burgers were well seasoned, moist, and had some diced onions in them. The wrap may look small, but it was really filling.
The lunch here turned out to be pretty good. I’ve already made plans to come back to try out their roast lamb for dinner.
