Sometimes in the middle of the day, I just feel a craving to go out and take a break from work. Last week, I found it hard to curb this need and I caved in although I had no idea of where to go. I was planning on checking out Urbanspoon but before I checked it out, I got a recommendation from a colleague to try Mosaic Mediterranean Grill by Bovaird and Torbram Rd.
It was a short drive from work and I was relishing the few minutes of freedom. The restaurant was in the middle of a strip mall and was bustling with people doing their chores. When I walked in, the restaurant was quiet, possibly as it was already past 1pm and the lunch rush was dying. With high ceilings, ample space between tables and a visible kitchen grill on a the far end of the restaurant, I conveniently chose a booth and I asked for a menu. There were a lot of items that I would like to try but for that day I settled for chicken souvlaki platter.
It wasn’t long when I was given a big bowl of greek salad brimming with copious strands of feta cheese. It was a meal on its own. Then it was followed with a very aromatic warm pita bread. Hot off the grill, my stomach shamelessly grumbled as the smell wafted my way. Just the two was enough to fill me. And then I remembered that there was the chicken souvlaki with a side of rice and potatoes that was supposed to come. I wondered how could I possibly finish all of it? You can see in my slideshow, that is about how much I brought home after eating. The nuggets of juicy chicken was delicious but I was too full to finish it.
