i spent my March Break in visiting my parent in Richmond downtown. Chinese food abound, after 5 days of having it, we needed something different other than pizza and fish and chips in Steveston Wharf which is another good alternative to Asian food stuff. In desperation for some normal food, we recollected that Felico's left us with a very good impression 2 years ago; therefore, we wanted to give it a try again, we were not disappointed.
We like Greed food, and we lived near the Greek Town in Toronto, the second largest outside Athens other than Sydney, Australia. My wife was brought up in the Greek town so we can boast that we have developed an appreciative taste bud for the Greek cuisine.
Felico's is above the North American standard Greek restaurants that usually offer souvlaki with fries or Gyro. Felico's menu includes some high end lamb dishes, whilst the more standard dishes such as mousaka comes with grilled vegetables and flavoured rice. The dish is not overpowered by garlic and the relatively mild Tzatziki sauce (garlic yogurt sauce) has actually some cucumber piece in a softer yogurt mix. I loved it. The food is definitely very refined Greek cuisine. We also had the saganaki (flaming cheese) but without the waitor yelling out Opa as the restaurant owner does not really want to stereotype its ethnicity but to promote the more sophisticated side of Greek cuisine, to this, i believe he has done it very successfully. We have also sample the lamb souvlaki, and it is just perfectly done. My mom had the rack of lamb, but we must remind you that their medium rare is actually medium to well done, so beware of this when you order it. On the whole, we have had the same good quality of food and received the same homely but welcoming service in this March visit comparing to our last visit two years ago, which is testimonial to that Felico's food and services are consistent.
Most importantly, it is a decent family restaurant without the boisterous Asian restaurant atmosphere in the centre of Richmond Chinatown. Enough Chinese food in Richmond, i strongly recommend that you give the Greek food at Felico's a try.
