Pikti 9.50: One of the best terrine of Berkshire pig trotters & head with pickled cucumber & egg. The hard boiled egg added a nice creamy warm to the meat pate. Flavors were well balanced and not too salty.

Roasted Squash 6: wood oven roasted butternut squash with tahini sauce & toasted pine nuts. So delicious on such a simple dish. Butternut squash is the perfect winter appetizer. Lightly seasoned with sea salt and cilantro.

Ippoglossa 29: A generous juicy piece of  Pacific Halibut steak pan-roasted with black lentils & Kalamata olive, artichoke tapenade. Black lentils seasoned with olives, olive oils and herbs is filled but not heavy. Capers, red onions and cilantro layer on top of the halibut. The fish has a slight crispy charred skin but it meat itself is still moist.

Kokinisto me Manestra 28: Aromatic braised lamb shank with orzo & myzithra cheese. How can you not order this? You can smell and see the large rotisserie of lamb, birds, and other delicacies roasting center of the restaurant!

The lamb itself is fall of the bone tender and moist. Au jus sauce is fragrant and rich. It is perfect for the orzo to soak in. Myzithra cheese slightly melts on top of the hot lamb shank.

Baklava 9: Traditional walnut & honey baklava with vanilla-praline ice cream. The ice cream is delicious and reminded me of the Persian ice cream we had at Diva at the Met. Honey baklava was sweet but not so sweet you would cringe. The phyllo pastry is flakey.

I’m quite disappointing that Vancouver does not have a fine dining Mediterranean Greek restaurant like Kokkari Estiatorio. Afterall, aren’t we a foodie town also?
