Greek Corner: the good and the bad

I finally got over to try Greek Corner. Service was frustratingly slow but it was only about 3 minutes between ordering and getting all the food.


* Gyro and souvlaki sandwiches. Tender meat, powerful tzatziki, nicely shredded vegetables. The bread on the gyro was a little over-toasted.

* Greek salad. Has all the basics covered. Just slightly wilted, like I like. The feta cheese used is of a higher grade than your usual Greek pizza place type.

* Galaktoboureko. Starchy pudding between filo sheets, topped with cinnamon.


* Greek fries. This is actually the main reason I decided to go- fries topped with lemon, oregano and cheese sounds great. Unfortunately, I couldn't taste any lemon, the oregano was dry and unevenly spread, and the "cheese" was a shake of fake parmesan powder (i.e. Kraft from the green bottle). Melted cheese would've made this a lot better.

However, there was one reason we only ate about 3 fries off of the plate: THEY'RE ONCE-FRIED AND TOTALLY LIMP! Folks, you just can't make a good french fry with a single fry batch. You have to fry once at low temp, and then again at high temp. Cooking for a long time at low temp makes your fries simultaneously dry and soggy. It's the exact same problem at O'Sullivan's. Big slices of potato that suck all the moisture out of your mouth. So disappointing.

Go to Greek Corner and get a delicious sandwich.
