Toronto has arguably the liveliest Greektown in North America. Greektown Toronto runs for several blocks along Danforth Avenue. Greek restaurants and businesses can be found all up and down the street. You can even see the street signs listed in both English and Greek.
I went to Greektown with my brother to finish my day in Toronto with a nice dinner. First, we walked down the street to check out the different restaurants and take in the atmosphere. We found several places with outdoor seating and even a live Greek band playing in a small park.
We saw a big crowd at Megas Restaurant and thought they must be doing something right, so we decided to eat there. We were seated outside and promptly had our drink orders taken while we perused the menu.
Next were the heartier portions. We tried the fried calamari, grilled octopus, and loukaniko (Greek sausage).
Service was friendly and efficient, and the food was excellent and worth the price. My favorites were the octopus and halloumi cheese. With drinks and tip, everything came out to about CAD$120. I would happily eat there again.
