mezedes at christina’s on the danforth

Shared some mezedes at Christina’s on the Danforth. Everything we ordered tonight was good, if not delicious.

We shared the grilled octopus, kolokithokeftedes (zucchini fritters), saganaki (panfried kasseri cheese), keftedes (meatballs), and the horiatiki (village salad). Good quality ingredients, including a better than average feta in the horiatiki. There’s an attention to detail I haven’t noticed in too many Greek restaurants in Toronto lately. I could taste cinnamon and cumin in the tomato sauce on the keftedes, and dill in the kolokithokeftedes. This meal at Christina’s was better than recent meals at some of the other Greek restaurants on the Danforth that tend to be recommended more frequently.

4 mezes, 1 salad, 2 pops came to $68 including taxes. Not fine dining, but a good meal if you’re in the area, with friendly service. Live music from 8:30 pm-10:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

    • Hope you & Sarah enjoy it if you visit, Eric. Just a heads up, so you & Sarah aren’t disappointed, the tomatoes in the horiatiki/village salad were standard hydroponic beefsteak tomatoes. Nothing special, and certainly not as good as summer tomatoes, and probably not as good as some tomatoes you might be able to find at Harvest Wagon or a top restaurant right now, but as good as you’d be able to get at most grocery stores in the mid April. If you’d rather take a miss on hydroponic tomatoes, their maroulosalata (romaine, dill, scallion salad) might be a better bet 😉
