Go directly to jail. I mean Olive Tree Bistro

A couple of months ago, we got a flyer for a mediterranean place called Olive Tree Bistro that opened up around the corner from us (and within walking distance of our new house!) The flyer has been on the fridge, waiting for the urge for Greek food to strike but that didn't happen until yesterday. With packing for the move looming, I thought it would be best to procrastinate by going out for dinner so off we went. Turns out, the Olive Tree Bistro isn't really a sit-down place, it's more of a take-out or delivery place. So, we placed an order and waited until it was ready - I got the chicken souvlaki dinner and EDP got chicken shawarma.  

The souvlaki was excellent. The rice was delicious. The potatoes were awesome. The greek salad was fan-friggin-tastic. The food was better than the other mediterranean place around the other corner from us and it was so much cheaper. Hello, go-to Greek restaurant! There is one other Greek restaurant in Guelph that I wanted to try but it's pretty far away from us and this Olive Tree joint hit the nail right on the head so maybe we'll try it one day. But if I get a craving for Greek (and it's not the Greek food festival weekend - which has the best moussaka I've ever had), I'll be putting in an order at the Olive Tree.

And, now that I'm posting this, it's dawned on me that I decided on my go-to Thai place recently, too! We had tried a couple of places and each time, the first has still been my favourite. There was a place EDP wanted to try so I've refrained from declaring Sombat the Thai Guy the winner. But we made it to the other place and the pad thai there wasn't as good as at Sombat's. So Sombat the Thai Guy is now my go-to place for Thai. 

Now all that's left is a go-to Chinese food place!
