Good point: Restaurants

I recently moved here from Alberta, and have fallen in love with the scenery, the lifestyle, and the warm people of Campbell River. Every day I feel as though I have won a lottery to be able to live in a destination like this.

I recently moved here from Alberta, and have fallen in love with the scenery, the lifestyle, and the warm people of Campbell River.  Every day I feel as though I have won a lottery to be able to live in a destination like this.

One thing I have found extremely disappointing, though, is the lack of flavour and creativity in many of the local restaurants. How many times have I gone to an “ethnic” restaurant here and been assaulted with bland, salty, flavourless food?

It seems no matter who I speak to about this, I hear a common theme:  To get a good meal you need to drive to Courtenay.

Well, recently I ate at Akroplis Kuzina, a new Greek restaurant at Merecroft Village, and I am pleased to report that they offer fresh, delicious, flavourful food. From the delectable chai latte and hot chocolate, to the scrumptuous spanikopita and sundried tomato/feta dip, followed by the mouth-watering chicken souvlaki and fresh-tasting sides….each morsel was savoured and throughly enjoyed.

Bravo to Peter and his crew (who provided excellent service) for bringing a restaurant to my newly adopted city that we can be proud of and enjoy.  They are doing brisk business this week, and I am sure as word gets out they will continue to do well. My husband and I will be returning, and will certainly be telling everyone we know!
