Upper Darby PA – Serving the Greek community for more than twenty years, Effie Ikonomou has a reputation for bringing the traditional flavors of Greece to our community. The Pontian Leski on Market Street in Upper Darby is a hot spot for more than Pontian dancing. Just down the street from St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox church on any given weekday or weekend you’ll find Greeks enjoying her hearty fare.
Loukanika, paidakia, souvlakia, biftekia or kountosouvli, it’s a meat lovers paradise, prepared the way they do in Greece. But there’s so much more. The salads and side dishes like orzo and Greek style lima beans are my personal favorites. Roasted peppers and lemon potatoes served just like moms are as good as any Greek restaurants. Even when you’ve eaten your fill, it’s nearly impossible to stop wanting more.
When dignitaries and Greeks from the homeland visit our community, this is their stop. They can experience a full menu of Greek food wrapped in the traditions at the Leski. More often than not, you will experience Greek spoken in the clubhouse. Greek music or television is regularly playing in the background.
The place has character, and Effie’s food is iconic. It represents our community and history. Now, she’s taken her food on the road, with her new business venture, “Catering by Effie Ikonomou.” Around the Delaware Valley where there are Greek dances, or where a wedding or baptism is taking place, you’re likely to experience her delectable food. If you’re looking for a dining experience with friends, or you would like to cater your event with Greek food, look no further. The food is truly authentic.
