Kouzina Niata Shows Montrealers What Greek Moms, Grandmoms Make

People in Montreal who want real Greek food – homemade  style – just have to head to Kouzina Niata, where owners Angelis Sarbanis and Lampros Tsalamengas said their menu features what their moms and grandmothers made.

The goal, said Montreal Eater, was to show off rustic Greek dishes in an upscale atmosphere.

“It’s basically foods that we grew up eating around the dinner table – it could have been my mom’s Greek biscuits, my grandmother’s style of phyllo pie, my aunt’s moussaka. We brought it all together,” said Sarbanis, who has a background in food manufacturing.

“But older Greek ladies don’t cook with measuring cups and they don’t like to shed their secrets, so we had to try and figure out how they did it, and add our own twist,” he said.

The lineup includes flakey phyllo pies, kotopita, filled with roast chicken, grilled veggies, and cheese, spanakopita and kreatopita, a braised meat pie, with desserts like baklava cheesecake.

The place is named for a remote village in Greece’s Peloponnese region, where Sarbanis’ father and grandparents are originally from, his family coming to Montreal back in 1976.
