There are so many delicious foods to eat in Greece! Though I spend most my time eating moussaka and spanokopita, these are the other foods of which I also can’t get enough! Of course, every region has their own specialty, but here are the top 10 that you’ll see almost everywhere.
Eggplant, potatoes, ground lamb topped with bechamel sauce – it’s sort of a cross between lasagna and sheppard’s pie. Oh! And pretty much everything comes with a side of fries/chips.
Layered filo pastry with feta and spinach. A great, cheap on to go option when you’re rushing to the next museum.
Fried cheese, flambéed with Metaxa. That is all.
A pita sandwich made from meat on a spit that is shaved off. It can be a messy affair if you don’t keep it in its wraper. Also, fries are included in the gyro.
Green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and, oh yes, a huge piece of feta topped with olive oil and oregano.
Grape leaves wrapped around rice, sometimes ground beef, mint and dill – all marinated in olive oil. A good mezes choice anytime.
These little fritters of delicious are made with grated zucchini and feta, formed into a patty or a ball and fried. They great dipped in tzatziki.
This is a pork sausage flavoured with orange peel and fennel. It will often come served sliced on a plate of mezes.
These little donuts of heavenly honey goodness are a-ma-zing! They are made with honey and soaked in warm honey – they simply melt in your mouth. How can you go wrong?
A traditional dessert made with layered filo pastry and various nuts (almonds, pistachios, walnuts) and held together with honey.
