Going to Athens this April. Some Greek fag able to suggest what to get there to eat. Personally I think Greek cuisine is god tier, just too short time to try it all; need to optimize :v
Just gonna let you know that Greece is nothing like the John Travolta movie. I was disappointed.
What's the capital of Greece? About $100
You know what? I've got nothing productive to add, so free bump, I guess
I spent almost a month in Greece, and only one night of that was in Athens (to see the Acropolis).
Travel around and eat super fresh cheap foods from all over, especially the islands.
Athens is pretty much a giant slum town. Go to any of the non touristy islands and you will be eating like a king.
I'm already bit scared about that. I hope going around with light and looking casual/poor like shit will help.
I'm really going to try a lot. I'm from Italy so not that different, still I suppose will be fun.
good fuckin lamb gyros with tzatziki
mousaka is aight, make sure you find somewhere good to get it
the highlight every time ive gone to greece has been fuckin taste as fuck spinach and feta pies
one time i went to kos for like a week or so with my little brother off season because nomonies, best european holiday desu. there was a hot titty woman sunbathing topless by the pool at our hotel, a small cheap little bakery just over the road (like 20ft from the door) from the hotel that sold the tastiest feta pies and these huge glazed donuts
just about quarter of a mile down the road there was a big empty restaurant with a family just sat out on the decking, we went there for dinner the first night and found out they owned the restaurant
they really treated us like an extension of their family, brought out free aperitifs and greek coffee, and ouzo for me while my brother got pink lemonade because he didnt like ouzo (he was 10 at the time, to be fair)
we went for breakfast there a couple times through the week, and got dinner every night
the owner made us a special banquet with just about any greek dish you can imagine, there was just so much food, we were there for 3-4 hours just sipping drinks, eating all the food they kept bringing out and watching the sun go down
yes, they got a large tip at the end of the week, pretty much whatever i had left that didnt need to pay the taxi with
From all the times I've been to Greece I've learned if there's one thing Greeks are good at, it's feeding people and being incredibly hospitable.
Sounds like a real comfy time anon.
I have a few good greek bros back home who all have big spits set up in a little garden hut for cooking meat. always a heavy night when I visit them. every time I think I can't eat any more another huge plate of meat arrives.
glossa/ fish, barbunia/red mullet, gavros/fried sardines, gavros, octopus, calamari, fried eggplant, fried zucchini, tirokafteri/feta dip, melizano salata/eggplant dip, tarama/fishegg dip, politiki/coleslow, horta/dandelionsalad? just order it, haloumi, feta saganaki/ fried feta, garides saganaki/gambas with feta and salsa, anything with lamb
edge? Hahaha, no seriously, Greek cooking is too many olives, too much olive oil and those fucking vine leaves. Name anything else that's not made better in other mediterranean countries and beyond.
Greeks are known for cooking lamb and octopus. Probably harder to find good greek food now that the country is fucked though. Best place for greek food is greek area's in other countries.
