When in Richmond, I usually go to the same places, and only these places, then I get the heck outta dodge:
- T&T or H Mart
- Sushi House
Jang mo jib– As of February 2013 – I no longer go. Service sucked. Food sucked. Ever wonder how to tell if a Korean restaurant is sh*t? Easy. There are only Chinese people eating there – like exclusively.
Um ya, that’s my Richmond repertoire. I am willing to get down with other things. The trick is getting me there. Momma GG likes to meet in Richmond – it’s accessible for both of us. So I begrudgingly showed up after work. Happy I did, because I found a replacement for #5 up there. I didn't do it on my own though...my co-worker Naka suggested it. Naka did good.
Welcome to the club Felicos
Just a few blocks from Lansdowne station there’s a standalone Mediterranean restaurant. The interior was memorable for its art deco feel and high ceilings with skylights. Very Momma GG friendly. A meld of new age class and traditional comfort. I MUST mentioned their doors. Yes, their doors. Their front doors are beautiful. Strikingly so. I want them in my home. If I ever buy a home. But that may be unlikely as I have commitment issues. I just went off on a tangent...
Sauteed seafood ($19)
A nice serving of prawns, scallops, halibut, and salmon in a creamy white wine mushroom sauce
REALLY good - the sauce was not too creamy - juuuuust right
Chicken souvlaki ($16)
Meat, juicy pieces served with staziki, rice pilaf, roasted potatoes and salad
See that potato? Really good...
|So flavourful - and fantastic feta.|
This is no Stephos. It’s family-owned but with warm and welcoming service and well-seasoned, well-made dishes with the traditional elements of Greece: olive oil, garlic, cheese…
Bottom line? We’d all pay the extra $5 per dish.
