OPA!

Hello everyone!

These photos are from a month or two ago (oops, totally forgot about them) when my parents and I decided to hit up a lovely Greek restaurant in Dartmouth Crossing, Nova Scotia called Ela! It was such a beautiful restaurant with plenty of options on the menu and various choices of Greek dishes and Greek-inspired food. I will definitely have to go back again soon! It was extremely good 🙂

Surprised when they picked me up in this beauty.... I definitely had convertible hair after this ride I can tell ya that!

For Lunch we started off with an Appy. We had roasted Halloumi cheese with spinach and fennel. I was extremely anxious and excited to try it because I have heard a lot of rave about Halloumi cheese and I can honestly say it DID NOT disappoint me… it was very good! For the main course I HAD to get pasta (fav). The pasta I got was a penne pasta with a cream-wine sauce, chicken, red bell peppers, and Parmesan cheese… one of the best pastas from a restaurant I’ve ever had! Keith got  the haddock, potatoes and veggies… the sauce on the haddock was really good and the potatoes were perfectly roasted with some spices. Mom was the bravest and got an actual Greek dish called Moussaka.. It’s like a lasagna… but Greek! (and she also had Greek salad on the side.) Instead of ground beef, it has lamb in it and a couple different ingredients. I really liked it, it was different. Dessert was a must… The second we all saw Vanilla Bean Cheesecake on the menu we were like YUP! Needless to say we all gained 10 pounds after this meal… oops!

John’s Lunch

On Sunday, my parents came up for their house hunting trip, and  for supper we went to a small eatery (that is apparently very popular but I’ve never ever heard of it), called “John’s Lunch” in Dartmouth. Their specialty is everything seafood, from deep fried clams, haddock, shrimp, scallops etc. Being spontaneous, me and my mom thought it fit to get the seafood platter, and everything was SO good. I can honestly say I never thought that I would ever eat clams, but  I did and surprisingly enough they were my favorite thing on the platter. If you live in Nova Scotia I strongly suggest you hit this place up… I hear they also have a great club sandwich!
