Quietly tucked into a corner off of Wekiva Springs Road, Mykonos offers a traditional Greek menu with a cheerful staff. Vasilis, greets us at the door with a smile and suggestions for appetizers. Mykonos moved over the course of last year and their new build-out is amazing. You can see the lamb being carved in the kitchen, slowly cooking on the rotating skewer.
We start with a delicious house-made hummus with warm pita bread triangles for dipping.
Vasilis graciously brings out a healthy serving of Olde Hearth Bread Co.’s artisan Filone bread, warmed and sliced thick with a generous amount of olive oil with herbs. Filone bread is a cross between ciabatta and French bread, giving the crustiness of ciabatta with a lower amount of chewiness. There’s something so simple and delectable about warm crusty local artisan bread with olive oil.
Shelix ordered Benny’s Chicken, on Tina’s recommendation, served with grilled chicken, feta, pepperoncini, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and tzatziki sauce. While a particularly messy dish, this was one of Shelix’s favorites. There was plenty of chicken and the tzatziki sauce was superb!
I chose the Greek Vegetarian, served with roasted peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, feta and fresh herbs drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. With melted cheese in a thick layer on top, I knew before the first bite that this was going to be fantastic. Occasionally you will find a vegetarian dish that is not only savory but also filling, this dish achieves both of those desired traits.
We recommend heading to Mykonos as soon as possible. Whether it’s lunch or dinner, They will be there ready to serve you traditional Greek food with a smile.
