200 South Halsted
I originally started coming here when I was at UIC (that’s the University of Illinois at Chicago for those who aren’t local). Whenever I ate there, I felt like I was at someone’s house eating something their Grandmother just made. The food was rich and full of flavor, and everything was so fresh. From previous experience, after being in business for several years (or more), sometimes the taste changes (and sometimes not in a good way). So now, the question is: “Will Greek Islands be the same?”
We started with the Saganaki. Yes, its very cliché, but its one of the first things I tried from here, and it’s a classic.
After one bite of each, it was confirmed, a done deal, the last nail being hammered into the coffin…
After a taste of each dish, you can taste the freshness of the ingredients, I was still reminded of my friend’s Mother/Grandmother, so yes, this place still has it.
I also forgot that this place imports their olive oil straight from Greece (another explanation as to why everything is so good!)
Hopefully you will get to try for yourself!
