Greek Done Right

I wanted to turn you guys on to some great local food around the Fort Lauderdale area. Being brought up on home cooking, I know that usually the best places to eat are the ones you’ve never heard of. Small little hole-in-the-wall places that give you a lot of bang for your buck (and your taste buds!).

One of my favorite cultural foods is Greek food. The perfect mix between Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavors seem to intersect in Greek cooking. The only problem I had for awhile is that the closest thing to Greek you could get in South Florida is a gyro from your local sub shop. That is until I found Jimmy…

Jimmy the Greek up on North Federal Highway (2500 to be exact) in Lighthouse Point blew me away! A small little drive through and outdoor seating joint that sort of resembles what a Checkers might look like in Athens. The pita sandwiches, tsatsiki, hummus, and grape leaves are all authentic and flat out amazing. The prices are great and menu is diverse. To top it all off, Jimmy is probably one of the nice guys you’ll ever meet. He remembers you when you come in and always greets with a smile. How good is it? Last night I woke up in a cold sweat thinking about souvlaki. Now that’s cooking!

Speaking of great Greek, if you’re in the mood for a more formal setting, Christina’s on East Atlantic in Pompano Beach has got the goods. A small, family run business, Christina personally serves her customers the delicacies her family has been cooking for generations. Very friendly and very tasty. Very fair prices and the best lamb shank I’ve had in a LONG time.

When you get a chance, give your local Greeks a visit. You taste buds will thank you.
