About Karamanlidika tou Fani

We fused experience, quality and tradition at our stores, in the centre of Athens, bringing to life a Byzantine pastomageireio – an eatery specialising in charcuterie and all kinds of preserved meats. At “Karamanlidika tou Fani” we sell a wide range of exceptional products but we also serve in our traditional mezes for your immediate enjoyment.

The inhabitants of Cappadocia and Cilicia in Asia Minor were called Karamanlides by the Ottomans and their country was Karamania. The Karamanlides retained the flavours of their food and cooking, preserving them through many centuries as part of their culture and traditions alongside their written language and religion. Situated as they were at a commercial hub between Persia, the Middle East and Europe, they introduced the salted meats and the charcuterie (the paston and the teracheumenous colines) of the Ionian Greeks to the Romans; they supplied the acropaston and the butili of the Byzantine Empire to the Ottomans, combining the spices of the East and the excess of meats available due to trade caravans with the need to provide food for travellers.

Today at “Karamanlidika tou Fani” you get to savour authentic recipes of the Karamanlides and to buy products from the Sary charcuterie workshops, produced by Paraskevas Sarimbogias in Drama in Northern Greece. We reproduce the flavours of the past using patience and knowledge, honouring our roots that stretch back into the depths of history.

Visit us in our refurbished, neoclassical buildings, where either in our air-conditioned rooms or our dedicated inner yard, you can enjoy exceptional karamanlidiko pastourma and Soutzouki, authentic karamanlidika sausages and a variety of traditional meze (or small bites). We also supply a choice of select aged cheeses, aged charcuterie, award-winning roasted, smoked and traditional products that we either make ourselves or source from small producers from all over Greece. We also offer pastrami from Drama, beef shank, hams, mouchtero and village sausages.

We specialise in a variety of high quality pastourmas, kavourmas, soutzouki and products which have been aged, which vary in taste and origin, but all of a level that satisfies even the most discerning gourmet. Choose from a vast range of matured gourmet products, cheeses with a protected designation of origin (PDO or DOC) or protected geographical indication (PGI) and gustatory products selected for you to enjoy and share.

We look forward to seeing you.

    Karamanlidika – カラマンリディカ at ! Buen viaje!(ブエン ビアーへ)旅と猫 タベルナ・カラマンリディカでギリシャ料理 … ◆ ギリシャを味わうならここ!精肉屋さんが営むタベルナ『カラマンリディカ』 19:30 夜はホテルの近くのお店に入ってみました。 【Karamanlidika – カラマンリディカ】という精肉屋さんが経営するタベルナで ギリシャ産のお肉やチーズを使ったギリシャ料理を気軽にいただけます。 最初にハムの味見(お通し?)をちょろっと出してくれます。 ワインとサラダを注文。 生野菜おいしい。 そしてこちらがこちらのお店名物の料理。 卵とトマトとチョリソ、生ハム的なものを炒めたもの。 正直、スペイン大好きな私は、ギリシャのお肉って美味しいの? などと思っていたのですが、 ここ、美味しいの!トマトの酸味もいい感じ! あと、魚を頼んでみましたが間違えたかな、スモークされたものが来て パサパサで進まなかった…。 ◆ ギリシャヨーグルト=水切りヨーグルト??? お腹いっぱいだったのですが、オーナーの「女性がデザート食べる?」と聞いてきたので、 「じゃあ、ちょっと。」と言ったら、 ギリシャヨーグルトを持ってきてくれました。 甘く煮た人参がのっています。美味しい。 ギリシャヨーグルトって、もしかしてなのですが、 水切りヨーグルトなのでは?と思ったのですが、どうなのでしょうか。 アテネヨーグルトを買わずにプレーンヨーグルトで水切りヨーグルトを作ればギリシャ風になると思います。 そして、よく話したらこちらのオーナーのマリアはスペイン人! わあ、スペイン語できるよー。と急に盛り上がる。 旦那さんはギリシャ人で、 「旦那さんの仕事で神戸にも行ったことあるよ。日本は大好き。」とのこと。 なんだか距離が縮まったのでした。 美味しいものを知っているスペイン人の彼女が営むお肉&お料理は間違いない味です。 1人1500円位だったような。コスパ高い!!!(ヨーグルトはサービスでした!) Muchas gracias Maria 実はこの日、疲れと酔いでチップを払い忘れてしまいました。 翌日、カランバカへ行く前に立ち寄って、 … Read More
