Last night was my second birthday celebration! I headed to Niagara Falls, Ontario to an authentic Greek restaurant, Koutouki, with my sister and my authentic Greek friend, Liz. What a blast we had!
The restaurant is decorated in the style of a Greek tavern with lots of distressed wood and brick instead of the usual blue and white touristy look. It had a cosy and friendly vibe from the moment we walked in the front door.
You couldn't find a friendlier, more fun loving hostess than the owner's daughter, Georgina!
Since my daughters read this blog, I won't say what I thought of our handsome waiter!
Hey, I'm 60 not dead! The flaming cheese was delicious too!
Let the food festival begin!
Stuffed Chicken ~
An undisclosed number of glasses of this ~
These would make great trivets and you could do it with $ store bamboo cutting boards and some corks!
By this time, we had forgotten we were in a restaurant and hanging with the owner, Steve, and Georgina like one big, happy Greek family!
My sister is having fun! ~
I toured the kitchen with the owner, complimented the chef, and we were on to dessert! ~
Oops, not much of that left to show you!
When your sides hurt from laughing and the table looks like this at the end of the meal, you know Koutouki is a great place to celebrate! ~
Just pay heed to the words of the great philosopher Aristotle ~
If you are in Niagara Falls, Ontario, you really must check out Koutouki! I loved it! They are at 5745 Ferry Street (905)354-6776.
Disclaimer: I'm not receiving any remuneration for raving about the place but I did have a couple of complimentary birthday drinks. Shhhh.
