When Nikos Sevdalis was thinking of a name for his new restaurant in Cornwall, the first image that came to mind was one from his native Greece. “We used to go to this place…it looked like a shack,” he said. “We loved it there, so I named it that. It makes me think of home.”
The Canadian version of ‘The Shack’ is located at 627 Montreal Road and is steeped in Greek roots. Chief among the menu items is ‘ufo’ – a traditional Greek sandwich that comes with your choice of chicken, smoked meat or pepperoni, which is then topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions and served with fries. “We wanted to bring something to Cornwall from over there,” added Sevdalis.
The menu also has plenty of other options, including pizza, burgers and Sevdalis’ personal speciality: fish and chips. “My whole family has been in the restaurant business,” mentioned Sevdalis, who has personally logged some 35 years in the kitchen, operating restaurants in Greece and Montreal.
“I was driving by with my daughter and we saw this location and she loved it, and so did I. So we bought it. “We love Cornwall. I still have so many friends here.” — photo levillagebia.com
