8 Greek Takeout Spots to Try Across Canada

Inspired by the oceanside climate and their Italian and Middle-Eastern neighbours, Greek cuisine has so much more to offer than the Greek salad and skewers we’ve all come to know and love. Experience dishes loaded with aromatic herbs, fresh veggies, & seafood, steeped in ancient tradition and rich culture.

Next time you’re craving anything from Moussaka to Baklava, these Mediterranean hot spots are guaranteed to satisfy:

Cosmos Agora is a specialty grocery store, bakery, butcher shop, and hot food counter, where you can get authentic, house-made, ready to eat Greek dishes while you stock the pantry with hard-to-find Mediterranean ingredients and delicacies. Don’t miss the Moussaka; this local favourite is comprised of baked eggplant slices layered in meat sauce and topped with creamy béchamel sauce.
