Ladies Lunch at Kisamos Greek Taverna in Steveston Village, Richmond

Emily, Marian, Lorna and I met up for lunch and get together in early October.

We met up at Kisamos Greek Taverna at noon. Free 2 hours street parking available.

The restaurant was not too busy yet when we arrived.

We waited quite a while for Emily as she had to sent her daughter for a job interview. We ordered the Kisamos Platter for 2 to share among the three of us first since Emily was late. The Kisamos Platter for 2 is $40.95. First came the Greek Salad of onions, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, pickled chili and feta cheese.

Next came the pita bread. The server did not bring the homous to go with the bread. When we asked for it, the server told us that the dip will come with the platter. We asked for the homous to be served first so that we can have  it the bread.

The server brought out the homous and tzatziki dips for us.

Next came the rice and oven roasted potatoes.

Emily arrived just in time when the platter was served. Judging from the amount of food on the table, we did not order any more for Emily as there were enough food for all of us.

The platter includes Marian’s favourite deep-fried kalamari.

Greek Moussaka with eggplant, potatoes, zucchini, bechamel sauce and meat sauce. It is similar to shepherd’s pie in my opinion with the mash potatoes topping.

The platter also came with two skewers, Pork and Chicken Souvlaki, 2 lamb chops and 2 pieces of Keftethes (Greek style meatballs). We found that the meat from the skewers and the lamb chops were slightly tough.

The platter also has 2 pieces of Dolmathes which is grape vine leaves stuffed with rice and herbs.

And lastly, 2 pieces of Tiropitakia, a combination of cheeses wrapped and baked in phyllo pastry.

There were more than enough food for the four of us. Maybe we are just small eaters. The company matters more.
