The Friendly Greek

The Friendly Greek Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I think I'm in love.

It's called galaktoburiko. It's a semolina custard wrapped in filo dough.  It is the perfect dessert. Smooth, creamy, sweet but not overpoweringly so.  With a cup of coffee, pure heaven.

A perfect way to top off an incredible meal.

Granted, it was Christmas Eve, and we chose the prix fixe dinner, which was mostly American foods ... Appetizers included stuffed mushrooms, baked clams, hummus, grape leaves.  there was a choice of soup or salad, and we chose incredible seafood bisque.  Entrees included prime rib, broiled salmon, shrimp scampi.

Our waitress was efficient, friendly , even entertaining.  She even helped me choose a Greek wine to complement the meal.

No doubt we will be back to sample the regular menu.

Yes, it is a wonderful dessert. I've had it, or something similar, at a Greek festival held annually (first weekend of June) at a Greek Orthodox church in Vestal. I look forward all year to their desserts, which you can take out. Alana

Ed will tell you that it is a good thing we don't have a lot of Greek places locally, because Galaktobourekos are my favorite dessert
