Wine and Dine in Athens
Greece may be a sight for sore eyes with its pristine blue waters and snow white houses. But as a land that was once the centre of conquests by its God’s. Athens titillates your senses with one of the finest culinary experiences in all of Europe.
From exotic seafood cooked in exquisite olive oil to top-quality Greek meats grilled to succulent perfection, you can’t help but fall in love with one of the world’s most celebrated cuisines when in Athens.
Feast for God’s
Now, you don’t have to visit Greece to know what their food look and tastes like. But if you’re a stickler for authenticity, history, technique and organic flavours. You may have a hard time finding a local Greek restaurant that’s true to the spirit of that found in, incredible Athens.
Here’s what you can expect when roaming the streets of one of the world’s oldest cities:
Authentic Greek Food
If you want a true taste of Athens, with its gorgeous aromas and sizzling sights, you’ve got to explore the streets and find, real Greek food. From noodles to falafels, (Falafel is a deep-fried ball, or patty made from ground chickpeas, or fava beans). There’s a world of ethnic eateries just waiting for you to discover. Keep an eye out for the much-loved sesame koulouri bread rings, available at most street vendors throughout the city. We recommend Kostos for its delectable souvlaki, pork skewers and beef patties.
PS. They close up shop at 4:00 pm, so if you miss the opportunity, there’s also the delightfully authentic Lefteris O Politis Greek Cuisine.
Once you’ve had your fill of local goodies. Be sure to visit the city’s garden courtyards and experience the popular outdoor-dining trend that dominate Athens, in the summer. From Aleria’s stunning interior garden, (Alexandrou 57, Athina 104 35) or the Electra Roof Garden Restaurant, (18-20 Nikodimou St. Athens). Where you will indulge in the beautiful delights of a Mediterranean diet that’s twice the food, and half the calories.
For a more extravagant indulgence, get ready to wine and dine like royalty. At the Premiere, a rooftop restaurant in Athenaeum Intercontinental Hotel that features idyllic views of the Acropolis.
Any trip to Athens would be incomplete without trying the city’s iconic desserts. Traditional Greek sweets include ryzogalo (Greek rice pudding), loukoumades (honey fritters) and Greek pies with kurus yogurt and butter filo dough and filled with feta. Consider visiting Ariston for a sumptuously sweet experience—and I Stani to learn about authentic Greek yogurt.
