Samos Greek Island Grill
1703 Whitestone Way, Baltimore ND
This Summer my mission was to find fantastic eating establishments in Maryland. So far I've been disappointed until now. Just a hop skip and a jump my curiosity focused on this place, Samos Greek Island Grill. From the onset, it looks like a fancy place with chairs and tables outside.
I proceeded to enter and it was small, no food oder indicating the place was clean, the air condition was blasting but considering the hot Summer days we've been experiencing, understandable.
Now, Greek food is one of my favorites foods. Unique in taste, semi healthy depending on what you order but simple in flavor. Noting overpowering.
My favorite is the Greek Gyro. You can have a sliced beef or combination sliced beef/lamb or chicken cubes.
You get a pita stuffed with slices of marinated and well seasoned beef, tomatoes, onions and a tzatziki yogurt sauce with cucumber, dill, salt pepper and lime juice roped all over the gyro. and wrapped like a ice cream cone funnel.
I was waiting in anticipation and couldn't wait until I got back to my desk. Next time I'll eat there.
I opened up my gyro and it looked delicious, exactly what I expected, and that's a good thing. The tomatoes were diced rather than a sliced tomato but all components were present. I took my first bite and appreciated the flavor or oregano, slight tinge of cumin, pepper and a dash of seasoned salt. It brought back memories of eating Greek food in Queens, NY. It was simply delicious. Each savory bite of the gyro made me want to go back and try more selections. It was unbelievable. Greet value, nice friendly prompt service. I felt that it was their pleasure to serve me and make me a happy customer by their delicious food or friendly service. I will definely go back again.
On a scale of 1-5 and 5 being the best, I give Samos Greek Island Grill a +1,,000. It's that good
