Athens

The Greek capital is famous for its souvlaki stalls, which sell cheap kebabs for when you’re on the hop, but it is a city packed with must-eats that tourists rarely discover, unless they book a Culinary Backstreets tour. On these, local chef Carolina Doriti leads small groups to some of the lesser-known highlights of Athens’ food scene. From dough-nut balls soaked in syrup and sprinkled with sesame seeds and cinnamon to traditional Greek coffee, made ‘at hovoli’ – in warm sand – at café Mokka (mokka .gr), most local favorites are covered. Then there’s a detour to unearth the city’s best souvlaki (kebabs), and a stop at Carolina’s preferred cheese shop, an atmospheric time warp that’s just celebrated its 100th birthday. Plus there are pit stops to buy wild mountain herbs on #Evripidou Street.

Don’t miss: Athens’ Central Market. Here, Carolina points out the best fish, fresh pork and ripe tomatoes before zooming in on a tiny stall selling herb sausage patties with salad, olives and glasses of tsipouro, a brandy-like drink. Carnivores will love Ta karamanlidika tou Fani, whose name means ‘cold cuts and delicacies’, where you can enjoy just that by ordering a platter of sausages, meats and pastourma – cured meat coated with paprika, fenugreek and garlic (karamanlidika.gr).
