On another trip out of the immediate neighborhood, a business associate introduced me to another old and good restaurant, Saki's Spin-a-Yarn in Fremont. It is a Greek restaurant with friendly service and a great selection of items. It has a large sign by the road.
However there was no signage on the brick building that actually houses the restaurant.
I ordered Avgolemono Soup, which is a favorite lemon-egg soup with rice which is a Greek standard. This one was delicious, with just the right amount of lemon to be tangy, but not sour. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesean for my main dish, it consisted of cutlets of breaded eggplant covered in melted cheese and tomato sauce. It was accompanied by some freshly sauteed vegetables. Unfortunately the photo I took 'disappeared' from the camera!
Mohinder, the local business associate who recommended this place, ordered a chicken sandwich with cottage cheese on the side. It was impressive how many choices of sides they gave aside from the standard french fries or salad. The sandwich looked moist and flavorful and Mohinder said it was very good.
And the other person there, Michael, ordered the Greek Appetizer Plate which was a very large portion at a very reasonable price, and was reportedly good as well.
Somehow this published by accident as I was adding text, so sorry for the duplicate sending. This was a friendly place with a solid Greek menu and good food! I have to note that it bills itself as a steak and seafood house, and it does have those things on the menu, however, it is evident that it has a strong Greek influence throughout the menu.
