White walls trimmed in blue paint accompanied by posters of Greek Isles is what the majority of Greek restaurants use to signal “Hey, you’re in a Greek restaurant so get ready…” “Ready for what?” is the question Spaceman and I often ask. Kentro Greek Kitchen in Fullerton, California, answered with a resounding, “Yum!”
This past weekend Spaceman and I met up with my brother and sister-in-law for dinner to catch up and try out a new restaurant. We looked for a centralish place and, because Spaceman chose the spot, it was Greek. Greek food is one of our favorite types and it is especially easy for a Lenten diet that accompanies this time of year. As it turns out, Spaceman hit the jackpot. This upscale yet casual (does that make sense?) restaurant was a good find in a very hip spot of downtown Fullerton.
As much as I enjoyed my lamb flat bread,
There is a large parking lot behind the restaurant next to the train station, but it fills up fast because there are a number of restaurants and bars in the same area. Many of the clubs had bands playing so you could easily go for drinks and dancing after filling up at Kentro Greek Kitchen.
For some reason “Opa!” has been racing through my head since our visit. Go figure!
