On the Road: Main Street Diner, Nelson, BC

On our recent trip to Nelson, we ate dinner at the Main Street Diner.

The restaurant is in a small, cosy space located on the main street and was a warm escape on a snowy night. The staff was welcoming and the service surprisingly fast considered the restaurant was almost full. The menu is a combination of standard diner fare and traditional Greek cuisine - ranging from fish and chips to lamb dinners.

We ordered the calamari to share as an appetizer. The breading was a little heavier than I prefer but it was still tasty.

For my entree, I ordered the Spanakopita Platter ($13.95) which came with a generous Caesar salad. The spanakopita was wonderfully rich with a perfectly crispy shell.

Dave ordered the Bleu Burger with fries ($13.95) - of course! He had asked the waitress for extra blue cheese and she returned saying she only provided the regular amount but he was welcome to have extra is he desired. There was almost as much blue cheese as beef! Needless to say, he did not need anymore blue cheese. Dave was in blue cheese heaven and thought the burger was outstanding.

The menu claimed that their fries were famous so I stole a taste off Dave's plate. They were definetly good fries. Thick cut, perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Next time I would definetly be getting my own fries!
