Spanakopita: One of my favorite Greek appetizers. This flakey filo wrap is filled with spinach, feta and herbs.

Calamari: This classic appetizer is crispy yet tender. Give the lemon a good squeeze and dip it in some tzatziki sauce!

True Greek Pork Souvlaki: Apparently, pork is the meat of choice in Greece. Supposedly all souvlaki in Greece are made with pork unlike what we are used to here with beef, lamb, chicken… This pork was quite tender. It had a nice char and is well seasoned. I would order this for sure!

Greek Salad: Although this is not a Happy Hour menu food item. I would suggest ordering it a la carte regardless. The presentation is nice and has loads of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, feta, capers and onions.

Dolmathes: Grape vine leaves stuffed with beef and rice, cooked in avgolemeno (egg/ lemon) broth. If you are wondering whether you can eat the leaf wrap, the answer is yes.

Caesar: Garnished with grilled prawn and pickled beans. This Caesar isn’t too spicy and is good for those who prefer a tamer cocktail. Me on the other hand like my Caesar with some extra heat!

Homous: I love this dip. It is more tart and lemony tasting than most restaurants. Made with chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice and parsley. Served with a side of pita bread. It is a good item to snack on between dishes.

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Vancouver (Downtown) | It’s All Greak to Me x Stepho’s on Robson

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Vancouver (Downtown) | It’s All Greak to Me x Stepho’s on Robson

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Stephos on Robson

 

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Stephos on Robson

Did you know that Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna is now opened on Robson Street? Stepho’s second location is across from Forage on 1359 Robson Street. Now you can line up at either Stepho’s on 1124 Davie Street in the West End or on Robson. As the summer came and the day grew longer, I often lined up on Davie waiting for Stepho’s. Sometimes line ups were painfully long over an hour. But you can probably attest that it was worth it. The portions are generous. The food is tasty. And it is good value.

Stepho’s on Robson mirrors much of the restaurant on Davie – Mediterranean blue, clean white palette and Greek themed décor. The whole atmosphere is nostalgic. Same great food. Same great people. We chatted with Theo Falias, Stepho’s Manager over Ouzo* and Sour Apple Martinis.

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Stephos on Robson

As Theo shared his story of how he started working for Stepho’s in 2000 as a busboy, we felt the bond and the heartstrings that built Stepho’s.

To you, Stepho’s may be just another Greek Restaurant in Vancouver. However, why did Stepho’s open on Robson as opposed to anywhere else? Over the years, they had placed a few bids along Broadway and Commercial Drive. Then finally, the second Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna location opened February 2014 on Robson Street – the predecessor was White Tower, a Greek and Pasta house serving souvlaki and a few greasy spoons.

So what’s the significance you now ask? Patience young grasshopper, let me tell you another story about Stepho’s. Spring weather in Vancouver is warm and we are with Stepho on the patio chatting reverse chronology…

Stepho came to Vancouver, Canada as a tourist in 1975 and started working at White Tower as a dishwasher. He met his wife there, had kids and set roots. 1988 Stepho’s on Davie opened. The restaurant rarely sleeps and preppers begin by 5am. The man in his gentleman years you see sitting outside the restaurant chatting with restaurant patrons, staff, a friendly face about whichever way the wind blows is Stepho – the man behind Stepho’s. I think my meter is up and I have a ticket on my windshield by now. But I don’t care; Stepho is a riot to talk with.

How few of us place a face to the name; knows the story behind a restaurant; or the man who signs your paycheck.

If you are wonder where are the food pictures? Look no further (actually scroll down please).

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Stephos on Robson

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Stephos on Robson

Sour Apple Martini 5.45: 1 part vodka, 1 part Sourz Apple Liqueur, 1 part lime juice. A tender drink to ease your way into Happy Hour.

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna Stephos on Robson

Skorthalia Garlic Dip 4.75: Grinded garlic and mixed with almonds. This is very garlicy but it is one of my favorites here. If you prefer something more mild, the humus is equally fantastic. Served with pita bread.

Tiroboukes Cheese Balls 5.95: Stepho’s specialty item. The cheese breaded, deep fried and served with marinated beets.

Roasted Lamb 10.95: 1.5 lbs of tender lamb meat that falls off the bones. Served with rice pilaf, potatoes, Greek salad and stewed veggies briami. Request a side of tzatziki sauce to dip the meat in. It gels well together.

Kalamari Dinner 9.95: lightly breaded deep fried squid served with rice pilaf, Greek salad and potatoes. Another classic Greek dinner item.

*Ouzo is an anise-flavored aperitif composed of aniseed, licorice, mint, wintergreen, fennel and hazelnut.
