Plaka Grill Restaurant Review

: Tucked away in a mini strip mall, Plaka Grill takes the fast-food concept and puts a Greek spin on order-and-eat convenience: just go to the counter, place your order, and grab a seat. While the food is not glamorous, it is authentic, with such appetizers as taramosalata and kotopoulaki, and heartier kebab dishes such as souvlakis and gyros from the grill. More complete non-sandwich meals include the kotospanakopita (chicken, spinach, and kasseri cheese) or shrimp saganaki (shrimp with tomatoes and two cheeses) dinners. But in case you are eating light, the kitchen offers Greek-style rotisserie chicken in varying portions and soups and salads. There’s not much in the way of desserts, but one must is this: Greek yogurt.
