The Arkadia House Restaurant

After spending a good morning under the sunshine at the beach, my friends and I were craving for Greek food. A friend recommended The Arkadia House near Eglinton and Warden, so we decided to give it a try. I was quite surprised that there was such a fancy restaurant in the middle of a mostly industrial strip.
Once we settled down, complimentary garlic bread was served, along with a plate of pickles and olives. I was a little over-excited about the garlic bread and admittedly ate one too many pieces. They were so good that we asked for a refill of the basket!
All the entrees also come with a complimentary plate of Greek salad, which was big enough to fill me up for lunch! The salad was quite delicious, albeit a little on the heavy side with all that feta cheese. Seriously, I didn't need to eat my entree at all after the garlic bread and salad.
Stuffed chicken breast ($18.95)- butterflied chicken breast rolled with spinach and feta, topped with light cream sauce. I tried a bite but wasn't really a big fan of this one.
Roasted leg of lamb ($19.95) was one of the specials of the day. My friend who ordered it loved it.
Gyro ($14.95)- slices of lamb and beef. I really enjoyed the gryo, but it was difficult to distinguish between the lamb and beef slices (I don't eat lamb). The two pieces of beef that I tried were very flavourful. Sandy couldn't finish even half of this and had to pack the rest home.
Beef souvlaki ($19.95)- definitely not as good as the gyro, as the meat was tougher. The portion was also less generous, not that there wasn't enough food to go around.
Chicken exohicko ($16.95)- fresh filet of chicken wrapped in filo pastry, stuffed with romano and feta cheese. This was also one of my favourite bites of the meal.
I ordered the mousaka ($16.95) layers of pan-fried eggplant, potatoes and ground beef, topped with béchamel sauce. The potato component was really interesting, almost had an egg-light texture to it. Although I enjoyed it on the whole, I felt that there was too much meat and not enough eggplants. My overall impression of this restaurants is that there is a lot of food. The food is generally tasty, and we were all stuffed to the brim! I wouldn't come back unless I was super hungry next time!
