Toronto Day 3: Lunch at Mezes, Danforth

On the third day morning, J dropped us at the Lisgar Go Train station on her way to work. We decided to stay in Toronto for shorter and ease of commute to the attractions we planned to visit. J&C, thank you so much for opening your home to us for the past two days.


After settling down at the airbnb place which we got at the last minute, we walked to the St. Lawrence Market which is a short distance from our accommodation for lunch, not knowing that it is closed on Monday.

So, Ben changed to plan B. We took the subway to Danforth, the Greek town to look for a restaurant by the name Mezes for lunch.


We picked Mezes because we just happened to come across this restaurant being featured in triple D before our trip.


The restaurant was not very busy when we were there. The decor is quite rustic.


We had the Kria Poikilia for our appetizer. It came with four dips which include homous (chickpea and tahini), tzatziki, taramosalata (creamy red caviar) and melitzanosalata (baked eggplant).


The dips are being enjoyed with garlic pita.


For entree, I had the Poikilia Skaras which is a mix of their grilled lamb chops, chicken breast and sausage. I like the lamb chops and sausage, not so much of the chicken breast.


My order also came with a side of Greek salad.


Ben had the Kleftiko which is a choice of roast lamb or chicken breast baked in filo and layered with onions, tomatoes, spinach and cheese. Ben’s choice of meat was roast lamb.  The filo was flaky and crispy when first served but the crispiness did not last long.


Credit card is accepted here.

After a humongous lunch, we walked along Danforth to burn off a few calories . There are plenty of Greek restaurants here.
