My SO and I went to the Raleigh Greek Festival for dinner last night. The music was a bit on the loud side, but it had a great party atmosphere, and of course the food was amazing.
I’m glad we finally got to go. I’ve been wanting to go to this festival for a number of years, but I could never get my schedule to align with it, or I would find out too late to plan anything. I’m also glad she wanted to go, too, because going to Raleigh is a bit of a drive for us.
The pastitsio was awesome, so was the spanikopita. That was some of the best spanikopita I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot. The lamb skewers were good, too.
Our plan was simple: buy a bit of everything, and take it all home for leftovers the next day.
We also tried some of the desserts, too: the donuts were really good (covered in honey, cinnamon, and a little brown sugar), and the galactaburos was good, too. (I really wanted to cover that in dark chocolate, though.)
There was a baklava sundae that we also tried. It was a bit on the sweet side for me. Okay, it was nuclear sweet.
It didn’t cost a whole lot more than going out to a nice restaurant, and we got two days’ worth of food out of it, so it’s a win-win kind of thing.
