I have a craving and I'm afraid it'll have to remain that. Anyone know of any Greek food places?

Face the front gate of Ehwa. Take a right. It's a few stores up on the right side.

Went there today to check it out but the bastard was closed so I can't tell you how the food is. I'll try to check it out during the week.

If the one in Seoul doesn't work out, next time you're in Bangkok try Athena Restaurant off of Sukhumvit/Soi 63. Excellent.

There's a really great spot on the Danforth close to Pape station.... Sad

I'm sad to say that it's in Toronto and not here.

This is one of the most tragic things about Seoul (get it Greek Tragedy...aren't I just brilliant! Very Happy )
Edited: Sorry Beaver, OK, got to check this one out!

Seriously, there's an awesome Egyptian Restaurant in Itaewon "Ali Babba's" and A cool Turkish place "Salam" (up where the Mosque is), but not Greek. Hoping one will open up soon.

Cheers!

I've been to the one near Ehwa a couple of times now -- it's called Gyros. It's pretty good, especially considering the competition Wink
They have gyros, spanokopita, pitas and souvlaki (chicken, no lamb). The tzatziki sauce is yummy!

I think they have greek salad, too, but I can't remember exactly.

The owner is a really friendly guy who used to live in Toronto.

been to this place lots of times! great food, but, bizarrely, i have never tried greek food before this place so can't compare. they do gyros 3500won, and souvlaki and other stuff too. great little place and the owner is friendly. gets busy at 12pm (lunch time for the uni) so get there about 11ish.

Not greek but a decent and affordable Turkish place in Dongbu Ichon Dong.

Its called Istanbul and is located on the second floor of a building next to Kookmin Bank, across the street from the Hangaram Apartments.

Not the best of directions but you'll find it with a little looking. Smallish sign on building.

Petra is great. Wondering if that Greek place is still around near Idae. Anybody else know of a good gyros spot?
