After running a few errands in Canton, I was hungry and in the mood to grab something quick so I went over to Samos Greek Island Grill after I finished my errands at Target. Samos Greek Island Grill is the fast-casual version of Samos Restaurant in Greektown. I’ve heard plenty of great things about both spots, so I was excited to give the Canton spot a try and I had a slight Greek food craving for the past few days.
When I was looking over the menu, I knew I needed to try the Spanakopita. It’s one of my favorite dishes and I knew this Greek establishment would do it justice. The spanakopita was stuffed with spinach, feta, and herbs then wrapped in filo. This was light and flaky without being greasy. Additionally, it wasn’t overly cheesy, the flavors in the spanakopita balanced together nicely.
I also ordered one of the platters which came with a side of Greek Salad. The Greek salad was good and a nice addition to the meal, but there was nothing particularly noteworthy about this dish.
My Grilled Chicken Platter however, was a completely different story. The chicken kebab was incredibly flavorful and tender. While the one kebab looks like it not may be enough food, with the two sides, it is more than plenty. The other side I chose were the greek fries. Greek fries are french fries topped with feta, lemon, and oregano. The fries had a touch more of lemon flavor than I would have preferred, but overall it was still a great addition to the dish.
