LET ME MENTION THE BAKLAVA RIGHT NOW >>>

The old Shari's building at Westgate Center stands vacant no longer. Puyallup eatery transplant My Greek now resides in the building, which sits off 26th and North Pearl.

In regards to the interior, it should be named My Greek Shari's. Though the place is warmer in character than it was at Shari's, as far as the interior - not a lot has changed. The booths are upholstered in the same diner fabrics and the pie fridge and hostess station await as you walk in.

That's where the similarities stop.

My Greek is about my happiness. A friendly staff greeted me, while a young man strummed mellow tunes on an acoustic guitar. A selection of bread and pita immediately hit my table, with delicious herb butter.

A quick peek in the lounge revealed a selection of wines along the counter above the kitchen window and the booze selection, though sparse, includes all of the staples. A hearty 10 chairs nestle the rail with a few tables sectioned closer to the bar section.

We began our meal with the feta bruschetta. Drizzled in olive oil and topped with fresh-diced tomatoes, garlic, basil and feta I could have easily devoured with by my lonesome and skimped on the entree course.

Greek and Italian fare represent, including souvlaki, gyros, pasta dishes and intriguing pizzas bearing monikers such as the Athenian, Roma and Maria's Great White. The latter featured an Alfredo sauce, roasted chicken, artichoke hearts and bacon. I nibbled on a small Great White ($12.95) and was pleased by the cheesy goodness. My husband noshed on the chicken and garlic shrimp ($15.95). Packing a good-sized portion of chicken and eight whopping shrimp, you can't beat the price. Surprising, it could have used more garlic.

Those who know me, know I kept an eye on the housemade baklava during my visit. Uh ... wowza! The two pastries served a la mode were heaven sent. Whoever is the mother of this recipe knows their baklava. I have a feeling this will be on my hankering list for months to come.
