As much as I love 'mediterranean' cooking, I don't often think of Greek restaurants when I'm looking for a place to eat (Italian and Spanish usually win the race). But whenever I sit down to a great Greek salad, or a well-prepared Moussaka (or - best of all - a buttery, flaky wedge of baklava), I'm reminded that there's a whole family of great food that I'm missing out on.
So when I do remember to go Greek, I head to Costas Opa, on the corner of 34th and Fremont Ave. in Fremont. They've been there forever, and it's not a fancy place by any means. But for good, solid Greek food, well-prepared, and served in a friendly atmosphere, it can't be beat. Next time you're craving a little taste of the eastern Med, give Costas Opa a try - you won't be disappointed.
