RIDGE MEADOWS DISH
March 31, 2012
The sea-side city of Richmond, British Columbia is home to one of the best Greek Restaurants on the Lower Mainland.
The Mad Greek looks like a little hole in the wall from the look of the outside brickwork. Don't let it fool you, once inside the high vaulted ceilings lift you into a whole new world of exotic exploration and culture. From the marble statues of Posedein and Dionysis to the wall frescos of Crete and Mykonos.
Our journey started with an order of Keftedes. A Grecian recipe for delectable flat meatballs cooked to medium and served with crisp red onion, fresh tomatoes and crunchy english cucumber along with piping hot pita bread and tzatiki. A serving of four Keftedes is a perfect size for an appetizer for two or an entree for one.
What would a visit to a Greek restaurant be without trying the lamb. Their lamb souvlaki is as tender as it is juicy. Cooked to perfection and served with rice, roasted potato and Greek salad.
If you can't decide on one entree, try one of their Platters. From souvlaki to dolmades to chicken. There is something for everyone.
Portions are large and filling but be sure to save room for dessert and coffee.
Prices are moderate and they have plenty of seating for large parties.
The Mad Greek Restaurant is located at 7260 Westminster Hwy in Richmond.
