Summerlicious @ Pan on the Danforth

This was my first experience eating at a (relatively) authentic Greek restaurants. It turns out that I like Greek food quite a lot! Especially the free pita that they served us! It was brushed with olive oil and tasted good even without a dip! LOL we even packed home the leftovers because we couldn't finish it and the waitress didn't seem too happy about that... is it bad to pack food from a Greek restaurant?
Kolokithokeftedes: Zucchini croquettes with feta, kefalograviera cheese and fresh herbs, served with tzatziki (garlic sauce). This was my appetizer and I absolutely loved it! Everyone agreed that it was the best choice out of the appetizers and I would order this again if I go back!
Dolmades: Stuffed grape vine leaves with chopped beef and scented rice. This was like the Greek version of 糯米雞 with tomato sauce. I found it too acidic and sour.
Exohiko: Cured chicken with onions, sweet peppers, mushrooms, and cream cheese, slowly cooked to develop meltingly tender flavour, wrapped in phyllo pastry, served with mixed greens. This was my order, and again I liked it the best out of the choices. The cured chicken was very tender and the sauce was very tasty, albeit a little too oily. I would also order this again in the future.
Red Snapper Fillet: Pan seared in a white wine, and lemon dill sauce, served with vegetables and new mini potatoes. This was a decent dish as well, but not extraordinary. I tried some of the fish and it was cooked quite well, but it tasted better with the sauce from the exohiko.
Arni Fournou: Braised Lamb Shank with sage, mushroom, tomato, celery, carrots and leeks, served with orzo pasta in a tomato broth. Haha, the tomato broth was, once again, too sour and acidic. I hate lamb and celery so I didn't try much of this dish. Apparently it tasted very Chinese.
