My Greece My Travels – Awesome Greek Food Experiences in Athens
by Marissa Tejada
There are many awesome Greek food experiences to have in Greece. From slow-baked traditional meals, grilled meat served without plates, strong spirits to exotic desserts — Athens has it all!
Greek Food Experiences to Have
One of the definite plus points to expat living in Greece is appreciating its beautiful food culture where people value authentic recipes and simple, fresh and natural ingredients. I think this is why Greek food, and Mediterranean food, is so popular. Not only is it healthy – it’s delightfully delicious.
As a professional food and travel writer based in Greece, I must say that I love my job. Reviewing restaurants, trying new dishes and sipping great wine – someone has to do it! Greece has proven to be great stomping grounds for these experiences.
Awesome Greek Food Experiences
If you love Greek food or you are willing to try more than just the Greek gyro, I have compiled this list of awesome Greek food experiences you can have here when you visit Greece. I also suggest eateries in the city I know best, where I live, Athens.
The traditional Greek deli experience is one of the amazing Greek food experiences you can have during your visit to Greece.
It derives from the Byzantine pastomageireio which is a tavern and deli conveniently located in one spot. Greek delicatessens, like in other cultures, offer a colorful and atmospheric section which is a feast of colors and smells for the senses, featuring the best of local cheeses and cold cuts.
Where to experience the Greek deli in Athens:
There have been a few new openings in town (the latest #food trend) but the best in my view is Ta Karamanlidika Tou Fani in Monastiraki. The #restaurant section, set in the deli and overflowing into a hidden charming narrow open air alley, features a wonderful and #tasteful selection of dishes incorporating the #tasty meats and cheeses.
