Hidden in Pompano Beach lies a gem known as Kosta’s Greek Eatery & Pizzeria, a terrific choice for diners seeking a taste of Greece. At Kosta’s, they’ve crafted a menu filled with beloved Greek dishes.
Our culinary adventure began with a plate of dolmades, where delicate grape leaves cradle a filling of seasoned ground beef and rice drizzled with a zesty lemon sauce.
We couldn’t resist diving into the classics: the souvlaki, tender and juicy and the perfect vehicle for the tzatziki sauce. The gyros, served with warm pita bread and bursting with savory goodness, practically transported us to Athens. And the moussaka, a rich and hearty casserole layered with eggplant, ground meat, potatoes and creamy béchamel sauce, was a comforting delight reminiscent of family gatherings.
But our gastronomic journey didn’t stop there; the grilled octopus was expertly charred and quite tasty. If Greek food isn’t your thing, fear not; there are plenty of pizza options.
Our meal at Kosta’s took a memorable turn when Kosta himself shared anecdotes about his family recipes and culinary inspirations. He gestured to an old photo by the door, and with honest warmth, he emphasized that the heart and soul of his dishes came from none other than his beloved mother, Julia.
