Kokoras Greek Grill
Seattle, WA 98136
Seattle Weekly's Description
The Greek food at Demetra and Spiros Rouvas' tiny, peach-colored restaurant in West Seattle is well suited for a night out with the family. Kokoras Greek Grill is brawny and likable, piling big, simple flavors on top of each other. If you bring a big enough group, maybe you'll start your meal with an appetizer combo: eggplant salad, skordalia (potato-garlic spread), calamari, and taramosalata (smoked carp roe whipped with oil and lemon) that you scoop up with stacks of warm, soft pita. Maybe you finish it with a cube of nutty, sticky baklava. But you don't need to, because the sandwiches and platters of souvlaki, gyros, and grilled vegetables are affordable and gigantic.
Tips from foursquare
The menu revolves around gyros, souvlaki and falafel, each offered in various permutations: stuffing a sandwich, topping a salad or sprawling across a platter of Greek fries ($6.75-$14.50).
When you want a fresh and delicious Greek meal, don't skip this little hole in the wall. The gyro salad is the menu item I return for and, when I feel like splurging (almost always), Baklava! Mmm.
Incredible Greek salad -best in town!
Best lamb souvlaki in Seattle
Everything here is delicious, but the Moussaka special on Thursdays is to die for! Owners are some of the nicest people I've ever met and really know how to make customers happy and comfortable.
