If you are a foodie, smiley and happy fellow this walking food tour is for you. I am a professional cook who loves local food and quality ingredients. This is a food tour extravaganza, an ultimate way to taste local Athens by a local foodie and cook.
It's definitely a private and personalised walking tour in the city centre. A tour to discuss, exchange opinions about food around the world and for sure an unforgettable experience.
Our first stop will take place at a local street food take away restaurant for souvlaki. Dated more than 30 years old at the same spot, it's a traditional comfort food for locals, highly preferred in the area. Quality ingredients and generations of expertise it is the ideal start of our tour.
Next, we will be visiting a must-go for the locals. Located in the heart of Athens, a stop at a dessert cafe place for "loukoumades" cannot be missed. Fried Greek deli served with Greek honey and cinammon. It's so yummy... trust me
Having over 130 years of history, Varvakeios Agora is the meeting point of the Athenians especially on the festive days of the year. The central market of Athens, as every other local market in the world aggregates pictures, colours and smells and takes you to the past in just one visit. On the Eve of the holidays, Varvakeios Agora looks from afar like a big human carpet that sells and buys goods. Dare to buy some of the strange and special spices sold on the stalls, there are so many different spices.
This deli is more than 90 years old. It's famous for cured beef or pastourma. There is a huge variety of different homemade sausages, cold meat and products form local producers around Greece. There is also a backyard where we can have a seat and try a few different products and taste greek traditional alcohol tsipouro or ouzo.
At the shadow of the Acropolis is Plaka, the most picturesque and oldest district of Athens.The tiny whitewashed houses among the rocks, the gardens with the flowers, the narrow alleys and the mazy planning is similar only to the one found in Cycladic islands.
