Tastes Of Greece

30012 Crown Valley Pkwy, G Laguna Niguel, CA 92677 | Laguna Niguel | 949-495-2244

Location Description:

Tastes of Greece is as tiny a brick-and-mortar restaurant as you'll ever find in Orange County: five tables, with the stoves and counters taking up three-quarters of the strip-mall space, and the flat-screen television above the front door because that's the only spot available. But the owners have put love into every available nook. A typical dish contains an entrée (meat, falafel or veggies) on a bed of long-grain, soft rice; forming a perfect L around it are an expertly tossed Greek salad, olives glistening among chunks of sharp feta; pita bread cut into diamonds; and a mound of canary-yellow rossiki, a Greek take on Russian salad heavy on the mayo and capers.
