Mykonos Greek Restaurant (Smithtown, NY)
45 Route 111, Smithtown, NY 11787, T: 631-979-2000
Mykonos Greek Restaurant is a small restaurant in a strip mall on Long Island. As we sit down we hear Greek customers behind us, which we take as a good sign. Perhaps this is more than a standard Greek diner-type place, which sevres more American than Greek fare. And indeed, the menu ncludesmost staples of the Greek(-American) cuisine, from gyros to keftedes, from avgolomeno soup to spanakopita.
We start with humus and pita ($6.99). The humus is creamy and lemony, very fresh and tasty. The pita is delicious. We then have chickpea salad (fresh and tasty) and M has a salad with tilapia (decent, not special). I have the Keftedes in Pita lunch special ($11), which comes with soup, soda, and rice or fries - I pay $1 extra for a fresh Greek side salad. The pita is warm and filled with soft and tasty small meatballs covered in freshly diced tomatoes, onion, and parsley. It comes with a delicious yoghurt sauce on the side.
Unassuming place, but with great Greek diner-type food.
