Grecian cuisine is right up there with some of my favorites! It’s often simple, traditional (classic), and is familiar to me from my time living abroad in the Balkans. Time-honored flavors like Musaka and Sofrito are always tempting, but in the land of the gyro, one does as locals do!

Gyro sandwiches come with chicken or pork, but rarely lamb

I’m fanatical over cheese and frequently request additional side orders of either spicy feta or Bouyiourdi as a starter for my meal.

Bouyiourdi
Spicy Feta; personal favorite

These islands are a seafood sanctuary! Whichever kind of seafood your heart (and tummy) desires you can pretty much find it. Further from that, it’s usually always prepared in several delicious ways to choose from making having your favorite dish multiple times during the week exciting!

Seafood platter; sardines, mussels, shrimp and calamari
Smoked halibut, crab salad, stuffed eggplant
Mussels in white wine sauce
Fresh fish or lobster?
Seafood salad
Escargot sautéed in pesto, garlic sauce
These totally count, right?

I genuinely respect an Octopus. Three hearts, mini-geniuses of the sea, it’s true. But they taste oh-so-good especially when wicked fresh!

Edit

Octopus in vinegar
Grilled octopus
Octopus salad
Braised octopus with candied onions

Italian and Ottoman influences also make their way into the dessert options. When flavored chocolates and pastries stuffed with berries and creams aren’t enough, try some classics such as:

Loukoumades; Greek dessert made of dough balls drowned in honey w a sprinkle of cinnamon
Licorice flavored waffle cone
Greek yogurt with honey; often simple is better!
Can a girl say NO to chocolate heels!?
Dozens of flavored chocolates and take-away pie samples

Dranks!

Ouzo; whiskey made from grapes usually served w ice because the color becomes cloudy when chilled & Mythos is the locally brewed beer
Salep; a warmed milky beverage said to have healing qualities made from the ground powder of orchids. Add cinnamon for flavor

You should be nice and hungry now! Happy fooding!!
