Olympic Restaurant, near Biodome

So we ate lunch at this diner place called the Olympic Restaurant, few blocks from the Pie-IX station, on Hochelaga. We were just casting around for a place to go and saw that on some software we have, so gave it a go. It wasn't awful, more mediocre than anything else. We ordered souvlaki (pork) and gyros. The gyros were a step below what I can get locally in Vermont (which is slices of meat from a prepackaged loaf they get from the local food service distributer). The souvlaki was actually tasty, as it was real pork that they'd actually marinated there. The tzatziki had a good flavour, and I didn't think it came pre-made but I couldn't be completely certain of that. The price was certainly right, $7.95 each. We got a bowl of soup to start (greasy chicken noodle that had surprisingly not sucky broth, and was probably from a can that I'm glad I didn't see), the sandwiches with a plate of greasy fries that were fried in oil that needed to be changed and that needed to be hotter (I didn't eat mine), and a dessert, which was a white cake with some strawberry filling and whipped cream frosting that came from some local store or bakery, uhm, several days ago, at least.

We probably would have been happier with the choices in the cafeteria at the Biodome, but it wasn't horrific, just not especially good. :)
