Meandering to Minoa’s

by gigi on June 22, 2007

I went to Minoa’s Restaurant the other day with a couple of co-workers. Minoa is a quaint little Greek restaurant in a house by Kingsway & Smith in Burnaby.


The seating arrangement is a bit odd here. You enter through the ground floor of the house where the kitchen also happens to be situated. Patrons are instructed by a sign to go up the stairs to be seated. The interior is your typical Greek restaurant dressed in blue and white paint with some Greek-themed wall hangings.

I ordered the Moussaka, which is kind of a Greek-style sheppard’s pie. The version at Minoa’s was layered with potatoes, eggplants, ground beef, and a bechamel sauce.

They also have the standard fan favourite, souvlaki. You can order beef, lamb, chicken, or prawn souvlaki. The one pictured below is beef.

My biggest gripe here is the looooong waits. I was here for lunch with some co-workers and although we ate quickly, it was tight to fit our lunch in under an hour. The portion sizes are also a bit on the small size and don’t really justify the price. My moussaka was $9.95 and the 1-skewer beef souvlaki was $10.95.
