Feel like Greece @ Eleni’s Philoxenia, a Greek restaurant in Portland, Oregon, USA!
“When Eleni Touhouliotis left the island of Crete in 1974 for the United States, she brought with her a Greek cookbook one of her cousins wrote. She worked in a few cafes and saved her money until finally opening her own Greek restaurant in the Sellwood area six years ago. Then she opened a second one, Eleni’s Philoxenia, 112 NW Ninth Ave. 18 months ago. She prepares Cretian-style food with an abundance of olive oil, garlic and fresh vegetables. Her favorite dish is kalatsounia (spinach, fresh dill and green onions rolled inside a covering of philo dough).”
